How can Chief Brooks force the UFD paramedics to work at the Irish fest in Herkimer County an offer them comp time at the City of Utica's expense? Take a look at the Utica EMT's that worked the festival and see how fast they get promoted and who Chief Brooks skips over. Just another reason why UFD is in the shape it's in under Brooks and his "ALL ABOUT ME" ways.

remember the 15 bucks you paid to get in? Well, that most likely helped reimburse the city of Utica for their pay. The cops working Dome events in Syracuse are paid by the city who gets reimbursed by Syracuse university.

I don't believe it. These people never do paperwork. That would leave a paper trail.

Yes. He has been there so long he has a god complex. And you morons allow it to go on. Thank heavens I live in the suburbs. My taxes do go towards paid fireman working at an event outside the city, outside the county for that matter.

how many days is the event and what would happen if we had an emergency here in utica the chief will have to drive all the way back to utica in the city car truck along with the emergency truck they brought to the event at the Irish fest how do they get away with all those days at the fest with all the city workers and city trucks what does he say he was woorking at the time for the week

And the city keeps fleecing the tax payers with huge public safety expenses...

Other places don't want anything to do with Utica. Take your help and shove it where the sun don't shine. Keep your FD and chief all to yourself. We've all gotten along without them in the suburbs for this long. Why start now ?

the county puts funds aside for the volunteer fire dept ? so if utica needs help they have to come since utica is in oneida county

The county of Oneida has nothing to do with funds for any vol FD. Fire depts are local entities. There is no funding from the county. The county has no say in anyone's public safety agency. They run 911 and handle some fire training and coordinate the mut aid plan. But there is no cash involved. Maybe youre talking about mutual aid. Then again you sound like a mental midget. Maybe you should try and figure out what it is your talking about before you open your ignorant pie hole.

Follow what I say ....

The county of Oneida - DOES NOT give any money "funds" to any police or fire departments. Do you need this stamped on your forehead to let it sink in appropriately?

They provide the services that were mentioned specifically. Just because the run 911 doesn't mean they're handing buckets of cash to local fire depts. Does it hurt you physically being so stupid ?

Now lets stick to the topic of how Utica fire emts are out of county at a social drinking event.

Are you a displaced person or just on weekend holiday from the ARC? Cause that's a shame those poor Soules at the arc have to stand the sight of you. Based on your typing and sentence structure you're about in the first grade. Thanks for the laugh. Keep licking those windows.

For those of us not grown in a cabbage patch we all understand they obviously have a budget for those items under county emergency services for the specific things listed. But nowhere does the county pay fire depts or ambulances for EMS.
