DUNCAN, Okla. (AP) - Duncan's fire chief says he plans to continue working as usual after local firefighters issued a vote on no confidence in him.
Twenty-six of the 39 firefighters in the Stephens County town's department voted last month that they had no confidence in Chief Larry Sullins, while two expressed confidence. The other firefighters either did not vote or voted they had no opinion.
Wayne Doucet, the president of the local firefighters' union, says safety concerns led to the vote. Doucet says the department has equipment that is in need of repair or outdated, including trucks that have problems with steering or other mechanical issues.
Doucet says morale at the department is low.
Sullins declined to comment about the vote, as did City Manager Clyde Shaw.
