Members of Omaha’s Fire Management Team will contribute more to the pension system and be on the city’s health care plan under a tentative agreement.
The Omaha City Council announced Friday that a tentative agreement was reached with the union representing the four-member Fire Management Team. It includes Chief Mike McDonnell and three Assistant Chiefs.
The Omaha, Bellevue, and Papillion Fire Departments have announced a mutual aid agreement.
The automatic mutual aid agreement begins at 10 AM Wednesday. It means the closest fire department will respond to an emergency, regardless of jurisdiction. For example, if a Bellevue resident with an emergency lives closer to a south Omaha fire station, that station would respond first.
