legit are you retarded? you are aware that about 92% of the fire departments in this country are volunteer? if it was not for us volunteering to put our lives on the line to save your ass youwould die. and for call volume volunteer departments around here seem to be getting more actual fire calls that a paid crew. and youare probably bitching about it because you are too stupid or not fit to make a cut in a fire department. nor have the testicular fortitude to jump your ass out of bed at 3 a.m. to go help out a stranger. stop being a mouth running pussy and you put an airpack on and go put out a fire and maybe you will see just how hard it is mister tough guy.

why do all these volunteers want praise, I thought you did it.because your just such a special person stop looking for some kind of fanfare or quit loser,.personally I wish you'd let myvplace burn all the way the replacement coverage is great and after you flood it and stop a half burn structure the homeowner always get screwed by the insurance, so if you want praise and compensation ask the real people you save that other corrupt group of bottom feeders the insurance agents and companies. Because the truth is you work for them 0p

Speaking of too funny, lets try this out.

You have been schooled.

The cost of starting a new FD would be prohibitive to say the least. Also keep in mind we couldn't keep our local volunteer ambulances running without resorting to paid staff. No volunteers = no FD. This isn't New Hartford. It's Herkimer, where the vast majority of people are welfare grubbing, wife beater wearing, dirt covered and in need of a bath and truck without straight pipes and confederate flag stickers types that haven't graduated high school, let alone making it through firefighter 1. Ride down Main Street. It should answer your question as to why the FD is paid.

So volunteer FDs are fine for the surrounding towns and villages but it could never work in Herkimer? They can get recruits but Herkimer can't? Truth is, it's easier to be paid. And the scheduling ensures that you can have a second job on the side. You have to admit, that's pretty nice. Not gonna let go of that.

the volunteers are an educated BREED also..ever see the licence bracket that says "fireman have more hose"?( i think they touch it too much.) and why is MOHAWKS reputation as THE CELLER SAVERS still going around?? you can run to a fire and back before they get there.BRING BACK THE SALVAGE TRUCK AND THE FIRST GUY at the firehouse gets to drive it LIKE A BAT OUT OF heck..that will increase response time..10 points for every fire police you can knock down with your car...DDUUUUHH you cant go dere..

But if they went volunteer who would sleep in the lazy boys all day, and who would play with their remote controlled cars while on duty, or who would drive the $80,000 bandaid truck to ems calls so they could stand there and do nothing until the real first responders got there. Who would make salary and make an additional salary while working as a codes officer for the same village? Who would the "acting village clerk" bang if there were no firemen? So many questions need to be answered and all they can say is no one will ever volunteer.

Well that's probably because some shitbag at the George Aney House called 911 because he stubbed his toe, or the staff yelled at him and now he needs some narcotics and a psych eval, for the 20th time this month. I wouldn't be in a hurry to get there either. I don't believe any of the thousands of 911 calls from that place have ever been an actual emergency. Remember the nutcase in the tree from not too long ago?? If that place burned down our taxes would be cut in half. Thanks George! He has a halfway house for tards, whackos and pedophiles named after him. As if Herkimer doesn't have enough problems.
