JENNINGS, Mo. - One fire department in north St. Louis County says it just can't operate as-is anymore.

The Jennings Fire Department wants to merge with the Riverview Fire Protection District to save money and resources. All the firefighters would stay on staff and in their current firehouse.

The next step is to get about 1,700 signatures from people living in Jennings, and eventually, the public would have to approve the merger with a vote.
