I find the lack of appropriate compensation for career firefighters in Wilmington to be disgraceful. The amount of training and commitment it takes to be a firefighter is enormous. What amazes me is that one would think that the incredibly low level of pay would result in a lesser quality of candidates applying for these jobs. It's the exact opposite! These men and women are top notch. Think about how much someone must love their chosen career and the city to work for so little. It's about time the citizens of Wilmington step up and demand better pay for these firefighters!
