The Volunteer Fire depts on LI take care of there own first then residents. During the snow storm the plowed members homes first. Now the used all the spare generators for members homes, and used town equipment to pump out members homes first before responding to any calls. When a disapointment and true sad

no better then the police.
firemen and cops suck the local economies dry then want more.
how many firemen (i dont call them fire fighters)are caught setting fires so they can be the first one there.
usually the volunteers are the local retards.

So why did the Volunteers take so long for responces, why were they seen at members homes installing generators and cleaning members propertys with Volunteer vehicles and equipment and members in uniform. Sad to see how they operate. Emergencys 2nd, members 1st in a Hurricane.
