Budget Cuts Could Put Tunica Casinos at Risk

TUNICA, MS (Ben Caxton) — Proposed budget cuts could put Tunica county’s casinos at risk. Tunica County is low on cash and supervisors are considering cutting North Tunica Fire Department’s staff in half, leaving just two firefighters per shift. At least four firefighters must be on the scene of a fire before anyone can go inside which means first responders would have to wait for backup to come from volunteers in Tunica, about 15 miles away. North Tunica Fire has a 54-mile coverage area which includes the eight casinos in Robinsonville. County supervisors will make a decision about the North Tunica Fire Department during their meeting next month.
