CAMDEN — More than 40 city firefighters and police officers rallied around city hall this morning, demanding Mayor Dana Redd bring back some of the laid-off public safety employees that were let go earlier this year, according to a report on Philly.com.

The protest was organized over the weekend, after a firefighter was burned in a house fire Friday night. Union officials blamed the incident on delayed response time. Meanwhile, police say they were busy trying to handle three separate shootings, including one homicide.

Nearly half the police force and one-third of firefighters were laid off earlier this year.
