Has anyone else noticed that our local on duty firemen are treated like the county slaves? They are forced to direct traffic at all the local functions. Standing out in the hot sun getting exhausted when at any miniute they may be called to an emergency. Shouldn't they be rested up and not treated so badly? Has anyone talked to any of them and heard their opinion on it?

Yeah they can been see standing in the hot sun every saturday at the farmers market directing traffic. Isn't it the law enforcement's job to do that sort of stuff?

Their getting paid maybe we should have some one serve them ice tea while they watch tv and play on the computer. Their overpaid and under worked as it is.

You obviously don't know a thing about the firemen and those who are out there. Ever think some of those guys are off-duty earning extra $s? Oh, no, that would be too f'king simple.

They are not overpaid and it is good they don't have a lot of emergencies like cities do. The firemen's salary isn't enough for most of them to survive on without extra jobs.

Man, topix people just have to bitch bitch bitch all the time.

Get your facts straight before putting your fingers on those keys.

Does the fire department mow lawns? I seen a trailer full of lawn mowers parked in a building at the fire department and have seen them mowing and they all had union county fire department shirts on. Does anyone know if that is a county service that's free/discounted rate to citizens? And if so where can I sign up?
