Before the anti-volunteer firefighter folks arrive, I'm going to put this out there. I was there (not as a firefighter) and there was NO saving that barn. The winds caused the fire to engulf the barn within minutes. The companies on scene did a good job of keeping the fire from the houses and other buildings on the property. It could have been really bad.

Don't worry any fault of Met-Ed and any cost to settle with the barn owner will be reflected in your rates...

Way to go Adam!!! I dont think anybody could have run a worse command than you!! congrats!! maybe you should have invited awsome andy and he could show you how its done... By the way i think they are offering some nims classes so you can learn more about your resources.

In response to The Best saying Awsome Andy could have done a better job at command even tho I know you were joking. Awsome Andy Carr of Palmer Township should be good at command because he is afraid of fire!!!!That's why he is always has command, Awsome Andy Carr is a joke of a fire fighter and as an Assistant Chief, So be glad Awsome Andy Carr was not there!! But on the flip side maybe we all know Awsome Andy Carr is a big blow bag, maybe all the arrogant air he blows around he could have saved the barn.

Maybe Amazing Andy Carr of Palmer Township Fire was not allowed to come to the fire cause he was out shopping for baby clothes for a baby that might not even be his LOL!!! I'm curious the crew of 6 that Palmer had standing by are the ones that are left in the department since everyone else left since Amazing Andy Carr became Assistant Chief.

where was the full crew for the MVA with entrapment??? well I thought I heard 2752 Amazing Andy Carr call in to county and tell them he was enroute to the scene in his personal vehicle but he had an extended ETA he was coming from Babies R Us. I can bet Mr. LA Fitness (Amazing Andy Carr) just walked around with his radio in his hand. God forbid if he actually had to do something except shoot out orders to people.. Talk about a tool, Amazing Andy Carr is one for sure.

No sir they are not bashing firefighters in general just the fat bastard from Palmer Township. If you knew him you would too. This guy and his wife, sometimes called commissioner grube, have destroyed the department. they are both too chicken shit to go into a fire but more than willing to yell at others. God help Palmer Township! Those taxpayers should be screaming...guess they are in the dark too.

If you live in Palmer you should ask your supervisors why your taxes are going up. Maybe part of the reason is that they are paying a guy to ruin the fire department. Since they hired "the commissioner", who has NEVER BEEN IN A FIRE membership and attendance are way down. They will try to play a numbers game with you stating they have X many new recruits and so on but the numbers are way down. Also the experience of all the new guys together is less combined than any one of the 14 highly skilled and seasoned firefighters he chased away. Soon the township will have to go to a paid department. If this guy was canned and they went back to a true voulenteer department you would have much better service at a greatly reduced price. They pay this guy a salary and bought him a brand new gas guzzler when they did not have to do either. So they are paying an unqualified, on so many levels, and unnecessary fire commissioner to destroy what was once the envy of Northampton county fire departments. The citizens of Palmer should be OUTRAGED!!! Wait till they see the tax increase when you have to pay firefighters as well. Unbelievable!!!!

I must say that all of the things these people are saying about Palmer are true. Delmar Grube and Andy Carr have ruined a great department. Firebug hit it right on the nose in saying they do not need a paid commissioner. No other townships departments that size have one and perform much better. Just look at Bethlehem Township for example. Palmer better wake up and get rid of those two before something really bad happens! They are dangerous and have no idea what they are doing.

In response to Yes and No, I do have respect for Fire Fighters and appreciate what they do,that goes for ANY VOLUNTEER. So don't say we are just mad because we are not Fire Fighters that's a bunch of crap,I may not be a Fire Fighter but I volunteer and I have gone into buildings and never knew what I was walking into as an E.M.T.

Yes Amazing Andy Carr has ruined the Palmer Fire department with his arrogant attitude thinking he is better then everyone else.I guess when you wear a white helmet you are above everyone else.uumm be nice to see Amazing Andy Carr earn his white helmet and pack up and actually fight a fire instead of having command. But I guess if you think about it a true Fire Fighter packs up and fights fire that's a true man and true fire fighter that is the difference between a true fire fighter & Amazing Andy Carr he is neither of those just a glory hog. And I can almost bet when Amazing Andy Carr get's to read this he will run to Delamr and cry about it. oh I'm sure he will say "they are just jealous" that is just a ego stroker for Amazing Andy Carr that people are jealous of him. NOT!!! who could be jealous of someone who gave up everything for a title???
