LA GRANDE: Department up to full staff

The La Grande Fire Department received 1,200 more calls since 2014 and at a shortage of staff. A total of 2,700 calls were recorded in 2019 and last year, 6-months out of the 12, was the greatest staffing shortages the fire department had to face, down 6 out of 15 full-time. However, so far this year the department is back up to full staff.
