ST. LOUIS, Mo. (KMOX) – As expected,  layoff notices went out today for 30 St. Louis firefighters.

Based on seniority, the layoffs are scheduled to take effect April 20th — two days before a federal grant that would allow them to be rehired is expected to be “officially announced.”

Firefighters Union Local 73 President Chris Molitor says it’s his understanding that once the $3.2 million grant is announced, all 30 firefighters will be called back to service.
