I think the Chief should take some heat on this one. Let's have a report and then ask for more "employees". How about doing your job Joe.

These quotes show some issues at the top.

"personnel unfamiliar with the hydrassist valve, untrained personnel assisting with relay pump operations, and "inconsistent labeling of the hydrassist valves in the department,"

"making sure firemen are trained in the use of hydrassist valves and relay pump operations; making sure that all hydrassist valves are labeled properly; and possibly hiring more Fire Department employees."

Tell me when this thread is updated:
