I say the biggest Fire story on Long island is how the LI Volunteers get away with Drill race Teams, buying sports tickets on tax payers dime, going to Caribbean islands for training and seminars, have Bars, professional kitchens with Viking and sub zero appliances,numbers fire trucks that are over the top just like the large lavish and plush fire houses.

My honest opinion - these Volunteers get so many perks like 30% reduction in property taxes, large lucrative Pensions and retirements, Free college, Free college credit, Free Insurance, Free vacations on tax dime, use of free catering halls not available for public use in most fire houses even though public tax dollars paid for them, the drill teams are a whole another issue and problem why, how and they are useless.

No accountability, public has no say, and they have large budgets that are blown on things not needed!
