You people are totally clueless to the ways that fire departments operate. I will never understand why people that do not work in this occupation always are posting nonsense. Volunteer firefighters in Chicago? They run approximately 600,000 calls per year or 1643 calls per day, yeah volunteers can handle that. This world is so full of stupid people
They did in the last strike and many of them got hired

If you had a loved one in either position, you wouldn't be saying bad things about them or accepting the bad rap the fire and police are getting. Not all cops are crooked as far as a fireman. Let's see how you feel when your ass needs saving. Give them a break, please. They are humans just like everyone else.

Tell the pigs not to save me. I would rather die then accept help from pigs. Also tell them to not interfere with civilians who are helping me. They want a monopoly on helping others.

Some locations have volunteers (on call). No one lives at the station.

I think an all-volunteer dept is possible even in big cities. I also believe many of the big high-rise fires are started by pro-govt govt employees to help continue to justify the high cost of these big police and fire depts.

People could easily be trained to handle fires. Society can be 'regularly' trained to help each other.

Big fire depts and police depts have become bullies, our worst enemies.

<quoted text>many Ambulances in chicag run none stop for 24 hours stright as well as many fire companies, how safe is it to operating a Emergency vehicle being up 24+ hours, as well as the ones that not even all the way a wake trying to respond to a call, we should not pay people to sleep,
You are a moron. When we say we run non-stop, it means we're busy, and had little chance to sit down. HOWEVER!!!!! night slows some and we get some sleep. No. Not everyone can do this life. We save lives of people we have no clue who they are, and most likely never will. We save their life weather we want to or not. This is the commitment we took and promised to uphold the second we became Firefighters and Paramedics. To all you anti fire department people; remember your comments here when you are being pulled out of a burning building by a Firefighter, or revived by E.M.S., or defended by a Cop. To the special person in this thread. Go to school and learn to speak, and form correct sentences.(You know who you are)

. Tory I I. Are you really as stupid as you sound accusing firefighters/police or any other public servant of starting fires to justify public expenditures.

And as for training people to fight fires, in that your correct. However in firefighting the need to have the physical and mental abilities to handle going into a burning building with temperatures hitting in excess of 800 degrees, blinding smoke, and feelings of claustrophobia. It takes courage to do that.

But in my life I have noticed that individuals who run their mouths about stuff like you do, rarely have those qualities. But if I'm wrong I suggest you fill out an application and put your money where your mouth is. Otherwise crawl back into your mommy's basement, turn on Sesame Street, and ask Mommy if she'll make you some Mac and cheese.
