Kevin Ferrara

This weekend, Host Kevin Ferrara discusses PFAS contamination at Marine Corps Air Station Futenma, Okinawa as well as PFAS contamination at former Wurtsmith Air Force Base in Michigan.  Other topics include volunteer fire departments and how the issues affecting funding, recruitment, and retention are affecting their survivability.  We wrap up this episode asking if volunteer fire departments should be transparent if receiving taxpayer funds.  There is legislation introduced in Pennsylvania that if passed, would exempt volunteer fire departments overall from providing information when a Right to Know Request is submitted .
