DRYDEN – There is a rare suspension of service by the Dryden Volunteer Fire Fighters. In a statement issued to the media yesterday, the Dryden Volunteer Fire Fighters Association say they are suspending all services.
The Dryden Volunteer Fire Fighters Association is suspending all services immediately due to the wrongful dismissal of three Volunteer Fire Fighters, one a Captain with 18 years of service, and two Fire Fighters with a combined 46 years of service.
This dismissal was initiated by the Dryden Fire Service Fire Chief, Ryan Murrell, the City of Dryden Chief Administrative Officer, Ernie Remillard, along with the Mayor and City Council of Dryden.
There has been no communication from the Dryden Fire Service Fire Chief, Chief Administrative Officer, Mayor and City Council regarding these wrongful dismissals even after repeated requests from the Dryden Volunteer Fire Fighters Association for two weeks.
Again, effectively immediately the Dryden Volunteer Fire Fighters Association are suspending all services as they have lost all confidence in the Dryden Fire Service Fire Chief Ryan Murrell.

Relations between the City and the Fire Fighters have been strained.
