"FUNNYGUY" I am with you. But no one would be surprised. It's UFD. Unprofessional, immature, lazy and entitled group of "wanna-be's". It's awful that there are qualified, deserving candidates that would be proud to be productive members of the department, but THIS is what we get in the City of Utica. If this were the private sector, half of the UFD would be terminated ASAP.

It would be blessing to if your house burned down. Take the insurance money and move out of the city. While Chief Brooks has many fine qualities, he acts like a bully at times at public meetings.

This is the mentality that gets you people in so much trouble. Do you actually realize how small the city of utica is? You can be in "north utica" from "east utica" in less than five minutes. Actually with a siren and lights you can be from any location to any other location in that city in less than ten minutes. Probably quicker. The people there need to scale down their perceptions. Holy crap.
Try an experiment yourself. Start at anywhere in the city and drive anywhere else. Time yourself. Eliminate time wasted at traffic lights but a vehicle with lights and sirens won't be waiting. Also keep in mind you have to adhere to speed laws where emergency vehicles don't. That still being said you can get to any point in that city from any point in less than ten minutes.
It's such a small "city". Lol!

You obviously have not driven the streets of Utica. You cannot drive a 10 ton fire truck over those pothole filled streets at a high speed. Its like a war zone out there. The firefighters would be bouncing off the roof of the truck. Fortunately this will all change with the 45,000 new nano jobs coming by January.

I will NOT take any more abuse or insults regarding my dept. I'm sick of you welfare lowlifes degrading my boys for the outstanding job they do. If an alarm goes off in your apt., of course we're gonna ask you to vacate while we investigate. Then you can get back to your video games, DVDs, online porn and making more babies to put on the dole. I'm a vietnam veteran and make $122K/year, and have been on the dept. since since 1952. I have a city vehicle at my disposal 24/7. A 2014 Escalade - fully equipped. And a Hess gas card for my city and my private vehicle.
