I spent 25 years as a professional Firefighter. Never in my wildest dreams did I make this kind of money.
Why don’t they just hire enough people so they don’t have to pay overtime.
the marina i’m moored next to has a fire station that houses the fire boats
i’m told that in fifteen years they have never put out a fire
a boat at the marina actually caught on fire and it was a fire truck from across town that responded...although the waterborne fire brigade was so close next door they could have put the fire out without leaving their dock
the first year of Zero’s presidency, they not only replaced their fireboat with a state of the art jet-powered fire fighting vessel, they threw in five additional smaller boats...i have seen one of these rescue an injured skier, and once they brought a drowned body in...other than that no one has ever seen them on duty in any capacity
once a week they don spotless drycleaned blue uniforms and take the big fireboat out for a joyride...love to know how much firemen who never put out a fire get paid
Our little town’s fir chief requested and received a $750,000 federal grant to buy a new engine. This was after we voted down a request to buy a new engine. Now, we’re being asked to vote on March 13th whether to pay the extra $250,000 to make complete payment on the $1,000,000 new engine.
Serious question. How does a fire chief make such a federal request?
I’m trying to word a letter to the town selectman to ask how this was able to happen and what happens if we reject the $250,000 expense.
Like another poster stated, there hasn’t been a fire to contend with in this little town for years. Yet, we have 3 engines already with this one on the way.
