CAMP SHELBY, Miss. (AP) - The full-time firefighting staff at Camp Shelby is being cut in half.

WDAM-TV (https://bit.ly/2bA1MVM ) reports the Mississippi Military Department is eliminating eight of 16 firefighting positions at the post, due to a reduction in force policy.

The cuts take effect Sept. 30.

National Guard officials said some of the firefighters will be retiring, while others will be moved to other firefighting positions within the National Guard. Those officials also said the cuts will not affect fire protection at Camp Shelby.
