    Actually I did Volunteer. Gee, the Servicemen of this country must not give a damn about the Country either. We are paid.

    Any other moronic assumptions you would like to make? As an intellectual, I happen to enjoy watching people makes fools of themselves. You are providing me with a months worth of entertainment. Thank You.

    In my opinion first off all Siarniki is not a friend to the volunteers. Second of all, this county may have more money if they stopped trying to run the Volunteers out and actually start helping them recruit. Just like the 2-3-4 consolidation will do if it ever goes through, it will take an all-volunteer Engine Co. (4) and two stations that do have paidmen and take the volunteer independence away. I serve my community because I love to do so, I will die for any of my community members if it will save their life. Myself and many volunteers have that state of mind where the Paid personel do not. Why take the give the job to people who dont give as rats tail? Stop forcing the volunteers out, help them and it will relieve many costs off of the county's shoulders. Help the volunteers don't run them out.

    hot DAMN ... so did 33 pay for the repairs themselves? Please let me know. I've had the privilege of running with 33 a few times (possibly with you if you're a member) and am very interested. If so, how did they do it?

    believe me, that wasnt the county paying for or doing those repairs. if they were, the tower would either never have come back or come back with the tower mounted on the bottom of the rig. 33 is smart enough with their money to be able to maintain their apparatus effectively. good for them, too bad other companies didnt take the same road

    WAG THE DOG !!! WAG THE DOG !!! WAG THE DOG !!!, thats all I'll say on this matter!! P.S. Why does Mr. Chrisman have authority over the Fire Commission on any matter involving the Volunteer budget. Has the Fire Commission lost it's authority given by the charter ????? Anyone have an answer ?????

    Short explanation, all expenditure requests usually go from the station to the Fire Commission for approval, Now all requests must go thru (over the heads of) the Volunteer Fire Commission and be approved by Mr. Chrisman the Volunteer Liason.

    Jam,

    Just a short reply to your comments on my earlier post about the budget getting cut every year.... did you get 100% of what you asked for this year??? I know we haven't in the past.

    I think the point Jason is making is divide the budget by the calls. If the PGFD budget is 50 million (i bet its quite a bit more - no one has posted it that I saw) and is running 111,000 calls (number posted earlier) it comes to $450 a call. Jasons dept is running calls at closer to $200 a call. My small vollie dept is around $120.00 a call. My career dept is around $1100 a call.

    Now that those numbers are thrown out there I will be the first to say that they dont mean anything. Each area will decide the expense that they can and want to bear for the needs they face.

    It just seems that the depts that are very busy don't have time to be aggravated by the "little things" and the small depts who have no money or equipment don't have the luxury of being bothered by the "little things".

    Be safe
    Chris
