As for the "Statistics" that Mr. Pyles will have in hand - they are MANIPULATED, and he SHOULD know that! What does that mean??? Well when a fire company "adds" themselves to a "rescue" call for example - they automatically get 2 calls out of a single call. They also get PAID by the county for TWO CALLS instead of a single call *&* they have added a zero min "response time" thereby drasitcally decreasing their annual times!**FACT**
Lastly - as a point to ponder - they currently have PAID STAFF (at a cost of hundreds of thousands of dollars annually) Monday - Friday 0600 - 1800 hrs.
We'll save the infrastructure monies and other 'county benefits' they have received for another discussion!
