overkill of equipment
Fire Companies

Can someone explain to me why some fire companies call half the county for fire calls? Today there was an odor investigation and 7 fire companies were dispatched to Granville Twp. Who thought that was needed? It like that all over the county. Wrecks have happened due to this and someone is going to get killed.

This is getting out of hand. I was told some fire companies drive past other fire companies too, just because they don't like some people. It was even said that some companies are called from other counties before local companies are called. Why don' t they think of the public before themselves?

I know nothing of this other than seeing a lot of trucks sometimes at small accidents but I can say this: I'd much rather them send 6 trucks to my house and only need 2 than send 2 and have needed 6.

Remember they're usually dispatching off of a quick call from an untrained citizen who is in a state of panic.

I think all that equipment was put to use this morning at JunkE's uncles house this morning. They may have been glad for it.

Not that I'm aware of. The only uncle I have has been in the ground for over 10 years.
