Lay Offs Begin

Tulsa, OK – 147 fire fighters gather at the Fire Academy to receive their lay-off notices from the city of Tulsa. Short on funding, and with no wage concession agreement from the Fire Fighters Union, the fire-fighters were give notice at nine o'clock this morning that they would be laid-off in seven days.

So many fire fighters were there, that traffic was clogged on New Block Park Road in northwest Tulsa, next to the academy.
