Guam - Guam Fire Department personnel worrying about a mass transfer this week can breathe a collective sigh of relief at least for now. According to GFD Spokesperson Joey San Nicolas, Governor Felix Camacho ordered the moves be halted. According to San Nicolas ,Fire Chief Dave Peredo planned to move personnel around to different divisions so that fire fighters could familiarize themselves and prevent complacency.

"It also allows our fire fighters to train not only with the current station crew they've been with for 2-3 years, but also to train with over personnel, but they might not see on any given run," he said.

Evidently GFD was told to hold off on the transfers until the next administration takes over.
