Officials in the Mississippi town of Columbus are questioning whether or not it’s sensible to use city fire equipment for events such as “gender reveal” parties.
A Columbus Fire apparatus was used to spray pink water into the air, something that bothers city councilmen Stephen Jones and Charlie Box.
According to the New York Post, Chief Martin Andrews argued that the firefighters involved were on ready alert to answer calls and that the cost to the agency was minimal, considering the community outreach value of the event. He also says he’ll do other events as long as the cost is minimum.
At least two councilmen told the Columbus Dispatch they don’t want to see it happen again.
