        I don't know how true it is but some article mentioned that he was in suspected for accepting a trip from some company that does business with FDNY. I guess hinting that this was just a way to fire him in a more PC manner. I could be wrong so don't jump down my throat please.

          That is good, the Gators that are usually reserved for special events were used here last year. Great for getting patients from side streets out to the cleared main roads, but still takes 3-4x as long per call.

            Since they are holding the Chief of EMS responsible, I wonder if he could use the example of meteorolgists making inaccurate weather forecasts pitch the idea of punishment consistent with the "offense".

            How many meteorolgists have gotten fired (or demoted, reassigned, and/or etc.) for saying "tomorrow will be a beautiful sunny, warm, and dry day with no chance of rain" and the result is thunderstorms all day and weather hovering aroud the freezing mark?

            In comparison with the FDNY EMS issue, there are costly consequences to inaccurate weather forecasts, such as travel delays, cancelled family picnics (and the associated party items going bad), and etc.

            By the way, the F-35 program is out of control with regards to cost over-runs... are they going to fire the heads of the USN and USAF too?

            It's a sad time when the focus is not on fixing an issue - but rather assigning blame and then continuing "business as usual" until the next issue (and probably a repeat "offense") rears it's ugly head.

              We get our fair share of deep snowfalls. With that, all rigs are issued chains, or at least checked over. While all of the rigs have On-Spots, as soon as there is plowable snow on the ground, ALL rigs are ordered to mount/install their chains.

              The dept. supplies the chains, and the crews are responsible for putting them on, as well as maintaining and repairing them.

              The only time I get involved, is when the chains break, and pull the metal up against the tire, or over it.

              Guess I'm just a little surprised that they are now, using chains. Figured it was a no-brainer for those that get more than 4 inches of snow.
