Termination Notices Sent Out As Bankrupt Fire District Shuts Down

COVENTRY, RI &#8211 Central Coventry firefighters received official termination notices in the mail as the Fire District prepares to close down.

Central Coventry Firefighters Union President David Gorman says the notices were given out to the entire district, comprised of over 40 firefighters and administrative personnel.

In February, Superior Court Judge Brian Stern ordered the bankrupt fire department to liquidate its assets and close by May 16. The department has been in receivership since October of 2012.
