Sharing services with all depts. is good. it could save each dept a great deal of money. Right now and for a long time you have had mutual aid. under a signed agreement when called you are to respond to that area you are needed. this way not all depts. would need all the equipment they have. but are far as making them all one dept will never happen. you have three paid chiefs now and I am sure that non of them are going to quit and let someone else take there place. as for the paid depts., these guys are great but non of them know how to fight a country fire where conditions are different.. they have said that the volunteers could fill in. well if the guys that are running the equipment are getting paid and you are doing all the firefighting that will not go to far. the paid guys are getting their pay check and benefits. the volunteers are getting nothing and taking all the risk. you look are the paid depts. in this valley and see how many volunteers they have now. Little falls about 4, Herkimer--none and ilion --about five that do firefighting. so you figure it out?

incorrect. herkimer does have some volunteers, they are called "call men". You are also omitting East Herkimer which is completely volunteer.

You are completely not understanding what mutual aid is and trying to use that as a comparison to a merger or consolidation of services. You are completely off base.
