§ 16.13c. When the force of the fire department is reduced, and positions displaced or abolished,
seniority shall prevail and the officers and members so reduced in rank, or removed
from the service of the fire department shall be considered furloughed without pay.
If any positions which have been vacated because of a reduction in forces or displacement
and abolition of positions are reinstated, such members and officers of the fire department
as are furloughed from the positions shall be notified by the board by registered
mail of such reinstatement of positions and shall have prior right to such positions
if otherwise qualified, and in all cases seniority shall prevail. Written application for such reinstated position must be made by the furloughed
person within 30 days after notification as above provided and such person may be
required to submit to examination by physicians of the board of fire commissioners
to determine his physical fitness.
