          Does this clear it up?

          QUOTES BY SQUADMAN911:
          "Check us out at iafflocal1664.com, later on bro."
          (and another quote that makes me proud to be a professional firefighter) "IAFF 4-ever / No Scabs"

          That would be the union of Montgomery County Maryland. A lovely place to work. Everyone get along SOOOOOO nicely there.


          cmon man, you are just like every newly hired career firefighter that was a die hard volunteer and cussed the unions until the time came that you were hired, and then suddenly "UNION FOREVER, MAN!!!" Dont ever forget your roots. You are doing just that.

                Why would anyone want to attend a party for the so called best vol dept in the nation.When are people really going to be informed that all they are are a group renagade Volunteers that are thrown out of other companys not because they are good Fire Fighters but because the don't follow rules and regs,and Scabs that don't have lives and aren't good enough to be Officers where they work..When is P.G.County going to wake up?,,after 4 or 5 get killed or when they respond undispatched and kill some civilians while they run down the road at 80 MPH>

                  I love it when idiots get on here and refer to volunteers as "scabs". I should start referring to career guys who say sh*t like that by what they are - "socialists".

                  The volunteers of PG County, Montgomery County, hell, EVERY county in America where there are volunteers are there for many reasons, but the primary one is that THAT is what the community wants. If the community wanted a paid fire department, then the political will would develop to pay for and staff one. If it ain't there, that means that the people of that community don't want to pay for it. So volunteers are not "scabs" (do you actually read what you write, and understand what a boneheaded, knuckle dragging idiot you sound like?), since they're not taking work away from unions.

                  Just stop it with the career vs. volunteer bullsh*t. Grow the f*ck up and at least try to act like an adult.

                    Sounds like somone wee wee 'ed in XChief's Cornflakes....Is it me or do I detect a slight bit of resentment towards the brothers at 33. Listen...like em or not, they get the job done and deserve every accolade they get. They earn it.

                    Scabs that don't have lives? They got lives....and they're doing something productive with it by saving PG citizens $$$ by volunteering. Not just in PG but every other locality in the USA. Implying they do it because they aren't Officers elsewhere? What a total moronic statement. I'm sorry to say that I hail from the same state like losers such as the poster referred to above.

                    Happy 50th 33.

                        I really love you guys,i don't hate volunteers,just the ones that cause problems you forgot to mention about how 33 does'nt break the rules (oh wait it must be because its true) also they don't do anything for their community because none of them live in that community except the ones who moved into the firehouse from out of state,80% of their other members don't even live in the County and yes some are SCABS if the word hurts QUIT DOING IT>>

                          I have established command. I have several orders:

                          1. IAFF members, stop harassing the vollies.
                          2. Vollies, stop harassing the IAFF members.

                          IAFF members- Weather you live in East St. Louis, East Gibip, or Timbuk II......I really dont think that the activities in Kentland Md, Kentville Md, or Kent County De. will effect your world. If by chance their activities will cause a cataclismic explosion, fire, death and destruction, let me know, and i will transmit for an extra Engine and Truck for you. I will not transmit a second alarm, so hold it with an extra one and one.

                          Vollies: The IAFF members have chosen and suceeded in a career in which you choose to perform for free. Perhaps there is resentment and/or jealousy on your part as some of you have been unable to obtain the same career as your own. I am not saying that this is the case for all of you, or any of you, so dont unload on me.

                          Vollies and IAFF members: GET OVER IT. NOW. Thats an ORDER from the command post. Oh yeah, one other order- I forbid any of you to use the word "Professional." None of you know how to use it properly. A true professional would keep his/her mouth closed and not complain.

                          Thank You for your support.

                              xchief: "...they don't do anything for their community."

                              ...except fight fires, rescue civilians, perform auto extrications, engage in fire prevention activities, and otherwise protect the community's lives and property. If you exclude these things, then yes, they don't do anything for their community. Then again, I could say that about every career department in the country. So what's your point?

                              xchief: "...yes some are SCABS if the word hurts QUIT DOING IT."

                              Quit doing what, xchief? Be specific. Fighting fires?

                              Just knock it off with the silly union propagandizing. It's unbecoming and unprofessional. Trust me, there's not one poor IAFF member who lost his job because of Kentland volunteers.

                                If career firefighters care about their community that they work in, then why in this area do most of them not live in the same community. Many (NOT ALL) carry a address they don't reside in to get hired. Some get hired without but would never live in the community they work in. If volunteers don't care about their community then where were all the career crew on Labor Day when we had 15 volunteers on the street protecting the citizen's that we don't care about but like to spend our holidays for.

                                This in no way means that there is any problem with IAFF members, but don't make arguments that make absolutely no sense when you really just have a problem with Kentland. I can't speak fo them but we too have a majority of people who don't live in or aren't from the area but they care as much as anyone or they wouldn't be there.

                                As for why there were not career people on a holiday, I don't blame the career staff and I know that it does not mean they don't care. But don't be mad at volunteer's because the county does'nt provide 24 hour service. They can't stay within budget as is let alone afford shift crews at all stations.

                                And not all volunteers drive at 80 MPH. Many of us pride ourselves on our driving safety.
