I think it would be easier to stop down there yourself becuase I can't find the number to the station and the number is probably for emergencies anyways.

i see the Fire department now has a new Ram truck to go along with the charger. Let's see the charger goes for around $40,000 the truck about the same. Plus they had to get the HEMI engine for both. the brakes alone cost 1,500 per axle,( I asked the dealer) then they had to get all the bells and whistles on them. The final cost to us taxpayers had to be near $100,00. If I see either one of those vehicles behind me I will not move over for them,( by law I don't have to.) With people going hungry and losing jobs, we don't need our firemen to buy these toy's with our money. They get enough breaks as it is, Taxes, a pension, buddy's with the police ie: no tickets, a gym a bar at all the fire stations. Can some-one explain to me why they need a bar at a fire house? that's my rant for the day.

NB - you are as clueless as they come.

While a blue light in a firefighter's personal vehicle is considered a courtesy light which does not give responders the right to run lights, stop signs, speed, etc. in addition to forcing other motorists to move over - it is a courtesy light, the chief's vehicles, presuming those are the vehicles you are b/i/t/c/h/i/n/g about, ARE considered emergency vehicles and when responding to emergencies with lights and sirens, you are required, by law, to give them right-of-way.

Yes the chiefs car I would get out of the way for. But not for idiots like you who must be one of those guy's who think because he has a blue light flashing in his windshield the whole world should stop for you. typical fireman view tho, you miss the point I was making. The spending of my hard earned money and my neighbors for 2 vehicles that cost close to $100,00. Really???? Please explain to me the justification for that kind of expense. Also why do you need a bar in a fire house? The fire house on Hale in north babylon had to ask for a loan to build it, one of the selling points the dept made was that it would have a hall that could be rented out and generate money. Well they never got the permit to rent it out and the only functions going on there are for the firemen only.

My father was a volunteer F.F. during the 50's & 60's at Hale Rd.. I remember the Christmas parties they would have for their children. The one room always smelled like beer. I thought that was a thing of the past but after reading the above posts, I guess not. I'm sure half the time my Dad shouldn't have responded to calls after throwing back a few. Not just my Dad either I'm sure. And in response to "North Babylon", unless you volunteer your time to a local Fire Dept. please don't knock them. You have no idea the training that is required (time away from family) plus the middle of the night calls, praying you get back in time for work. Everyone is too busy now it seems. I'm glad not everybody feels the way you do about not moving over for responders. Imagine if NO ONE moved over or gave them the right of way. Fires spread quickly, they don't wait for the dept. to show up, so any slow downs for responders puts an extra burden on those on scene who need help supplying water, dragging hose, etc. Please reconsider, your home may some day need their quick response.

also a former North Babylon resident. Our neighbor was a volunteer fireman (in the late 60s) and would drive like a lunatic when the siren would go off. He even ran over his kid's tricycle and dragged it about a quarter mile under his pickup before it finally broke loose - he never even slowed down to see if his kid was on it! As I recall, he ran with the station that was behind the old Carvel on Deer Park Ave.

Wow, Jerome, ID... you've moved on to a better place! Good for you
