The Firefighters Union wants you to know about another brownout in Lexington.

There's a sign warning the community that Engine 9 off Richmond Road is closed down.

The problem is that there's not enough staff to run it.

Firefighters say they've seen their personnel drop from about 545 people a year ago to about 480 today.

They want the community to know how the brownout could affect emergencies.

The city is in the process of hiring more recruits.

The Department expects to be back up to about 500 people in the next several weeks.
