I hear they cook all day, sleep, hang around, listen to music, watch TV, wash trucks and waste water and get paid for this. IS THIS TRUE?

Why don't they help clean the village up while on down time or are they afraid they won't be there to respond to a fire once every three years???

We could use them on these old buildings falling apart and basic village clean up if they are on payroll. Either that or just dissolve the dept and make vol. once and for all.

MONEY MONEY MONEY is what its all about and who is PADDING who in Herkimer.

Every time I have driven by, they are hanging out smoking cigars and looking pretty lazy. The smell of barbeque too..WTF???? who pays for that food???

get them out cleaning up Herk as they are the most qualified to be in dangerous places....then it would be no worries on cleaning up old buildings and sending the bill to the bill to the building owners.

It's like that at most of the paid fire departments. The worst is they dont even try to hide it. No wonder government employees are called working welfare .

Right on that. Lets list all their salaries to show what the tax payers are paying for them to do nothing all day long and not even try to lend a hand in the village.

Hanging out in the local social clubs and taverns. Whoring around the valley with someone else's spouse. That is hard work not getting caught.

Our Firefighters are good family men. They work hard. It's not their fault that there isnt anything burning. BTW they make emergency calls just about every day of the week. So to somehow suggest they do nothing is crazy. When there is an emergency HFD is one of the first one scene. So cut them a break.

thentart naming all the hard work they do daily cause we dont see it. if you are not busy at work then you should be doing something for the community while on the job. Going to work does not mean going to sleep, eating all day, washing cars and so on. I know they do go on calls, but it doesn't mean they all do, but I do notice that they have to take out the big rig on every little call made though to waste gas and expense.

If they are standing around then they need to be doing something.

Next time you see a building burning , out 50 lbs of equipment on and grab a hose run inside the burning building make sure everyone is out then extinguish the fire. You pussys would be running away from the fire they run toward the fire. Herkimer has has a long history of proud fire service. If you want a volunteer dept then you have to decertify it. The process takes about 5 to 7 years. After that I hope it's not your family that needs saving. There are assigned tasks there. And you can't have them all over town because they are the ones who bring the trucks and equipment to the fire.

And when someone stubs their toe they go out on a medical with a fleet of fire trucks. What are they going to do hose the toe down ? What a waste of money.

They sleep in their recliners at the station and a lot of union business to lighten their work load and fatten their paycheck. Is it time to eliminate some positions ?

What do they do? They go to work everyday to provide for thier families. They are at the ready to answer the call of a first responder. All the fire fighters I know work very hard. Wether you like it or not, we need them. They provide a invaluable service and peace of mind to the community. They did the training, they made the sacrifice to become a first responder. Give it a rest already. Stop beating on the very folks who would drag yer butt out of a burning building in a heart beat. I know many of these families they are good , generous members of the community. Stop it already.
