Where in all of that do you see any cost savings? You still have the city paid and employed people with their pensions. On top of that.

About the only obvious savings i see is not paying for fire men's meals

You want a real radical idea, and utilize manpower correctly, get rid of the fire department, fold them into the police department, and call them Public Safety Officers.
