Council does away with civil service for NAFD

NORTH ATTLEBORO - The town's fire department will no longer have to adhere to civil service and its provisions after a vote of the town council Monday night.

The town’s police department did away with civil service years ago and annually conducts its own tests for potential patrolmen. The fire department will soon be doing the same.
