    "We wanted to use our resources wisely and strategically," he told the newspaper. "We are not putting (firefighters) at any additional risk. I think it enhances their ability to connect with the community."
    Yeah. Right.

    And no, I'm not a firefighter. But anybody with even half a brain cell would recognize that statement as pure baloney. Leave it to the police.

      In another version of the article that I read the deputy mayor is quoted as saying "All D.C. government employees have a responsibility to look out for residents."

      I wonder what area he and the mayor will be patrolling?
      Nothing is as unimpressive as someone who is unwilling to learn.

        Maybe the new Chief will change the dept. name again to FEMSPD?

              Very true. Then again, they'll probably claim that they're management and everyone else is labor.

                Not putting firefighters at risk. I say BS !! Some of this gutter trash has no problem shooting at the cops. A fire dept t-shirt or even turnout gear will not stop a bullet.

                To connect with the community at 2-3-4am?? Who is this guy kidding? Any decent part of the community, unless you work a late shift, is with their family home sleeping.

                Another thing I'm wondering...Are these companies still responding to fires, or they "off duty" while on patrol?
