I know a lot of fire fighters in the cityand if you notice these guys do not have it as easy asit looks.The city only has a total of three fire fighters on an Engine and one man to drive a laddertruck that is very dangerous and the city manager needs to get off his as and at least put two fighters onthe ladder trucks four fire fighters on the engines or pumper and Buy ambulances for all three fire stations that would be a total eighteen firefighter paramedics just to man ambulances 24/7 and reduce the roll of the Bristol Life Saving Crew because finding volunteers is going to get even harder to find.

You will find that most city governments are run by brainless bean counters and corrupt politicians. They will not take money from their own pay scales to provide for quality paid first responders until they need one themselves.

If all volunteer first responders just quit, you would see that there are usually only a single handful of low paid, paid people left.

Why volunteer to give your all for free to any government, local, state or federal that rapes you in taxes and fees every time you turn around?

Most people have no idea what it takes to get certifications in Fire Fighting and EMS Certs. Its time to stop giving it away for free and let the political monkeys start paying for professional people's blood sweat and tears.
