Shutesbury's fire chief is getting a new contract, ending the threat of the entire fire department quitting.
A new three-year deal for William Tibbetts was announced on Tuesday, after he said he would leave if he didn't get a salary increase.
Firefighters said they'd step down with their chief.
This comes a day after the entire Blandford Police Department resigned.
In the end the Chief, who says he needed the increase because the job has morphed into more paperwork and recruiting, received a 10 thousand dollar increase and will make 65 thousand dollars a year.
