    damm glad to hear thought it would get the AX, Hate to loose anything from downtown. When they going to add someone to the point? I would go Bat Sh*t down there. You guys going to hold your staffing levels at current? At least through this fiscal year. Where does Superior send donations to the Stauber for Mayor fund ( Just Kidding ) how about 101,s fund against him. Hey be safe over their and don't be affraid to give us a jingle if you need our help. Be safe and keep your head on a swivel.

    P.s Now we are EVEN!!!!!!!!!!
    Funny... It sounds like after they hire these next 6 their not going to be hiring much more for a while. And as fas as I know the staffing levels are going to stay the same. I don't think they will be hiring another guy for park point, it would be tough to justify hiring another firefighter for a station that only gets 100 calls a year, plus any call that sounds like they might need some extra hands 1 engine is dispatched to as well. The park point station is pretty much only there for if the lift bridge is up and other rigs cant get out there. I've heard some interesting stories about the park point station, I've heard its haunted, and that it's infested with spiders, one thing is for sure, it's creepy down there.

      Yes it is a old station. looks like it is about to fall over> My inlaws live on 33rd so I go past it all the time. Rumor has it they might build a new one down their. Im not saying hire another guy down their but at least give him some company. Get them a dog. Yet with the taxes those POOR people pay you think they would get more for their money. I pitched to herbie getting them a polarus 4x4 to respond down the beach with but I don't think it helped any. Well be safe and remember us over here. See ya this summer for Boat Trng,( our new fire boat ) I guess we are going to get you all involved.. Later

          Yea, rumor has it that their remodeling the station soon, but i guess that has been a rumor for a while now (I can't really say, I'm still really new to the game). 5 engine down on park point is due to be replaced here soon, I was told that their going to be going with something along the lines of a mini or midi pumper on a F-550, nothing has been confirmed yet. i guess one of the perks of being at that station is that your able to do some chick watching when they are on their way to the beach, thats gotta make the guys feel a little less lonely.

            Yea chicks in cars, Give hm a 4x4 so he can run the beach, then it would be worth it. Otherwise he is stuck watching on the road. Plus the 4x4 would get him on the beach with all his chit to effect rescue when the waves are big. Now he has to hoof it over the dunes with that chit Ya know they arn't getting any younger. Use it to tranport the patient to the gut bucket instead of hauling the PT up the sand by foot. AND It would be dam fun driving in the beach. It would **** the city off, but still dam fun.

              OK, been awhile since I was up in yours and Plisken's neck of the woods. Stupid ??? but is 5 engine a one person unit? I heard Duluth had a one person pump, could be wrong on that.

              Anyway, I was thinking about heading up that way again this summer. Last time I was there it was getting cold and things were shutting down, I think it was August. (just kidding) Actually had a friend of mine from the Navy from Superior and I was testing for SFD last time I was up there.

                Hey jccrabby

                Yes 5 Engine is a one man operation, I beleave it is the only one in the country. it protects Park Point. Hows GB doing? To bad for the packers (farv-ras) comming back. Next time your up in the great white north stop in. I did 10 years in the navy as a (AW) rescue swimmer/ Sensor operator. Sh-60B Helos. East coast. I don't miss the B.S.

                              So SFD went to CPAT then huh? I actually liked the old PAT they did...except doing in the rain...for crying out loud can't you get to 50 degrees in that part of the state?

                              Oh yeah, nothing like dressing up for an interview and then do you PAT right after. Although it beat driving 5 hours for each.
