    Firefighters concerned about training program cuts

    (Silver City-AP) -- Firefighters are concerned about recent cuts
    to the Oklahoma State University Fire Service Training program.
    The Oklahoma State Regents for Higher Education have cut the
    one-point-two (M) million-dollar program to about 500-thousand
    dollars.
    O-S-U spokeswoman Natalea Watkins says the university is working
    with the chancellor for higher education, state regents and the
    Legislature to restore the funding and continue the program through
    2004.
    Silver City Assistant Fire Chief Bill Beall says there must be
    funding in order to provide fire protection in rural areas.
    If the cuts aren't restored, training could be affected for
    volunteer firefighters.
    Beall says a reduction in training may also impact insurance
    rates in the area.
