Great, more over the top and unqualified Fire districts wasting time, recourses and money. Enough with the parades, drills, race teams, and over the top fire houses, 90% of the equipment the have is never used. Volunteers cost LI tax payers more money, we need a paid full time department on LI.

Some of us enjoy this "waste of time" I remember going to the games as a child and now bring my children to the event. Granted it would be nice if all of the teams made an effort and enjoyed these events. It is obvious to the specatators which teams actually compete vs. just going through the motions. Kudos to all of the volunteer fireman who risk their lives everyday to save lives.
