Yes, there are more reasons these people "volunteer" than just out of the sheer goodness of their hearts to help people.

I think he's stating spending at these firehouses on Long Island have gotten out of control. I read a article last year Hicksville ordered a new Fire truck and it was to big for the firehouse they had so the town needed to build a bigger fire house? did someone not measure or maybe that was the plan from the beginning to force the town to build a over the top fire house.

Yes Volleys - we need paid full time Departments around Long Island. You can close the multiple fire houses in towns if you have a full time paid department and faster responce time. Volleys actually cost LI more money then a paid dept would.
