    Vin, whats your ID number, how long have you been in?

    Second, stats...everyone boasts Kentland's stats, where are the Mini-Pumper stats?

    Kentland tries to say they are the busiest Engine in the nation. The busiest Engine in the nation is DCFD Engine 10. This cannot be compared. Kentland can run 3 engine calls while another engine is on another call. DCFD is ONE ENGINE. It is apples and oranges?

    Also, maybe Kentland can't have a reserve truck for the same reason the county will not let them have a Rescue Squad? Thats right folks...the "Rescue-Engine" you hear so much about is only AN ENGINE. They are not allowed to run a Rescue Squad.

    Maybe if they took an ambulance, the county would have a different attitude towards them. Also note that Co 28, West Lanham Hills, never had a reserve truck when their truck was out, and they do not have an ambulance either.

    Just some thoughts!

    Just some more thoughts.

    KVFD,
    Wouldn't you think that the reserve trucks might belong on the south side of the county since alot of the trucks down there are out of service. There are a ton of trucks on the north side. With Tk 24 oos, and tw 21 out alot, where is the first due truck coming from to Co 47's area, 25 and second due 17 maybe.

    Just a thought

    Well I think this all sounds neat and all but, in that kind of area is 2 stations really enough for 40sq miles? Thats like having 2 staions in all of Newark or Jersey City. Imagine if FDNY only had 2 stations per 40sq miles? No wonder why they have that many calls. It also looked like Kentland does not have very many people per incident ether. I do think its great that they are 100% volunteer. Just it sounds like risky stuff down there.

    I recently got a chance to ride with Kentland 33...........They were all that has been said and then some. To the dude who wants to ride, all I had to do was buy a carton of Marlboro lights for J & Pinky and the other fellas, and a package of RedMan chew for a dude named Jimmy fingarzz....pretty cheap for 3 days of fast action.....They let me eat with em too.and even spent alot of time showing my girlfriend around the firehouse........some damn nice dudes....Im pround to say ive had the 33 experiance........

    This was a forum about PG County, Not Kentland. But since everyone is talking about Kentland again, What I want to know is why the PG County Fire Chief will not give company 33 a reserve truck until tower 33 returns from repairs?

    You are incorrect in your statement that all Kentland volunteers are career firefighters elsewhere. I believe it would be less than 50% of the membership.
