Pharr Fire Department to hire additional engineer

The Pharr City Commission has made possible the hiring of another member to the city’s fire department.

Thanks to a vote on an amendment to Article IX, Firefighters and Police Officers Civil Service Ordinance, the fire department can add another engineer, bringing their total number of engineers to 18.

This change allows the city to comply with Fire CBA and “better serve the needs of the citizens of Pharr,” a news release reads.
