JAMESTOWN – Lawmakers in Jamestown will be voting on a new contract with the firefighting union.

The contract, which was announced late last week by Mayor Eddie Sundquist’s Administration and the Jamestown Professional Firefighters Association, runs through 2024.











The new agreement provides for the hiring of four additional firefighters, along with the deployment of a second ambulance, a resource officials say is sorely needed in light of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

Wages for firefighters will also increase at 2.5 percent each year during the contract term.
