Many of those were expected to leave over uncertainty and misinformation or bad information that was swirling about over their futures and their pensions due to budget problems.
Now it seems that eventually accurate information was put out and those pension fears have been calmed.
According to a HFD source, at least 34 or more of those retirees have rescinded their planned retirements. Those that have already officially retired area ble to come back under a grace period.
Of the 8 Deputy Chiefs who were expected to retire, now only 2 are actually taking retirement, and reportedly only one Captain is leaving.
Overall , great news for HFD and Hartford's residents.
Communicating makes a huge difference
