A couple of weeks ago, Utica Fire Chief Russ Brooks suggested the City of Utica provide fire protection and emergency medical service to the Sherman Hills section of New Hartford. He correctly pointed out the Mohawk Street firehouse is much closer to this section than New Hartford's firehouse. I think the Shepherd Place firehouse is, too. This suggestion has alot of merit and is worth considering.
I hope New Hartford's elected officials and firefighters don't play politics with this issue. People's lives are at stake.
The city could raise alot of revenue by agreeing with the Village of New Hartford (I think the village owns the fire department) to provide fire protection and emergency medical service to the town north of Higby Road. This includes the Sherman Hills area, the Valley View Road, Cascade Drive, Sedgewick Park, Ironwood Road area and Stonebridge/Lower Woods Road area. Response time and quality of service would significantly improve. These people own some of the most valuable homes in the region, pay alot of property tax and deserve better service than volunteers provide. New Hartford's response time is too long, and their firefighters have no where near the experience Utica firefighters have.
Don't play politics with public safety. People's lives are at stake. New Hartford, do the right thing and shift this tax money to the city of Utica, which is the base of our economy. We need to keep that core healthy, and this is one common sense way to do it. It should have been done decades ago.

Or better yet let New Hartford construct an additional fire house to handle those areas of urban sprawl. Stop being cheap. NH wants to sprawl right out like they have, yet not increase services to these areas.

Is anyone left in UFD to cover New Hartford??

They had 23 retirees last year. I havent heard about any hiring, so that must mean the remaining staff will get a truckload of overtime, right?

Only in our area could we fathom this is the deal of a lifetime..... Get rid of dedicated folk doing a job for free.....and replace them with people making overtime prob to the tune of over 50 to 75 an hour. This is so awesome I can't imagine why more suburbs don't run at this oppurtunity!!!!

What does not make since is that you have New York Mills,Yorkville,Whitesboro,Whi testown, New Hartford and Utica are all within a few blocks of each other and no shared services. Maybe we can move the county building to the village of New Hartford so those on social services can be bused to collect their social services. Even better yet send all the non profits to New Hartford that don't pay taxes. How often does the Oneida county sheriff patrol Utica Streets? We survive as a region or die as a region.

Why should we that live elsewhere bail out Utica? Most of us moved out of Utica and for good reason. It was run like crap, corrupt, and the quality of life sucked donkey. To think that some of you would propose you now thrust your city issues on us is insane. People vote with there feet. People will continue to move further out. We moved out of the city and will in fact move again If we have to have anything to do with that dump city. Enough is enough. Leave the suburbs alone. And deal with the mess. You made it. You clean it up. The suburbs don't or need your shared services.

New Hartford has the fire station in Chadwicks. The Willowvale fire department can get to these areas very quickly. NH does not need the city or another firehouse.

That is the Willowvale fire dept, not the NH fire department. Different entirely.

It is time for New Hartford to stop being cheap and form a full time paid fire department or expand their current volunteer one.

No they really don't pay the City for fire coverage. There has never been any agreement in place for them to either.

And why would they do this? Maybe you the asshat writing all this wants a job?
Please. They're doing it for free and doing a fine job. Why expand ? Everything is fine as it is!

Fine. Don't move and be considerate to your fellow man that has an emergency? Are you that retarded that you think your some how hurting the fireman responding? Moron. Your just delaying someone getting help. Then you wanna rag on volunteer response times. Can't have it both way freak. Hopefully that emergency you won't give right of way to is some how associated to you or one of your worthless inbred family.
