Buddy TV: Providence Fire Demotions Rescinded

In today's edition of Buddy TV – cut a bit short by President Obama's news conference today – Buddy and Andrew talk about the news today that the voluntary demotions for two high-ranking Providence firefighters have been reversed.

Fire Chief George Farrell reversed the decision to allow the demotions after meeting with incoming Public Safety Commissioner Steven Pare.

The two men wanted to demote themselves back to the rank and file firefighters so that they could retire in a few weeks with a 3% compounded COLA on their pensions, which they could not receive as a manager.
