They want a new contract how about. Drug testing. But oh no that won't come up . I lived in this city for many many years and I can name 8 to 10 so called jakes that would not pass a weed/ coke test it should be on the next vote .

It's too bad topix lets any idiot with a keyboard start a thread. That's the price we have to pay for our freedoms. This person probably wants the respect of a fireman's job and he cant pass the test.

I agree with Mrtea, the cops and firefighters have a physical taxing job. Not everyone is capable of the task.

These "36hrs On Snoring in a Barka lounger" rummeys with real "second real jobs" always pull the dopey "test" argument outta there fat arses when even the slightest whiff of "dreaded private sector accountability" is mentioned.

There already is a drug testing policy for police and fire. It was included in their last contracts and both police and fire voted to accept it. The cost of those tests are paid for by the taxpayers however so the city decides when it is needed. The decision has nothing to do with the firefighters. If you are truly concerned about this issue, go down to city hall and ask to review the contract. If you are just a troll trying to stir up trouble, have at it, there are obviously people on here who will believe anything. Happy Holidays!

How come no one had a concern about "firefighters" and "drug testing" until the firemen picketed against the mayor and spoke out about violations against the city? It's the mayors people talking trash.

so its OK to do illegal drugs? If Cops and Fireman in this city REALLY had to take legit tests for drugs then the civil service list better be up to date and handy. Im not sure there could be enough names on it to fill all the openings. The turnover would be embarrassing.

For your info drug testing is up to the chief and the deputy chief at there power so if they don't want to do anything about it they don't have to there is no random test in place .How about every body gets tested once a month and see how many are gone
