Hey Pete Cerminaro,(kamakazell) why don't you sell your dump and and move elswere. You should keep your mouth shut about UFD. I don't see any of these young firefighters running around with hero printed on their coats. You were one of the worst firefighters on the job,you tried to suck the city for any benefit you could get. They were wise to you,so you have a hard on for everyone there. Let's not talk about your work ethic, cause there was none you ball bag. Your a disgruntaled old man.
Another coward hiding behind your computer, reveal your identity and then we will meet and discuss my career. It is people like you who have no honor or code and are a disgrace. Any time, any place. I guarantee you will not reveal your identity because you probally do not live in UTica and have no guts to stand up for what you believe in.

<quoted text>By the way, let us get one thing straight, you are nothing more than a person that holds a job for the taxpayers, if you do not like the way you are being paid or treated I suggest you quit and look else where for employment. You are no hero, you are an employee who needs the taxpayer and remember this is your self serving mind, we do not need you, you need us. The real people that are sacrificing for us and your miserable being are being killed every day in a war zone. Now go and keep your mouth shut when it comes to being a self proclaimed hero like your valor stealing leader.
You really need a good slap in the face pete... if you werent such an old bastard, id give it to you.. hard to beleveie you are a former firefighter with comments like this

Well all I can tell you is that do not let my age stop you, but remember look me in the eye when you do it because I will be the last person on earth that you will see and you can bet on it.

It upsets me deeply to know that i spilled my blood and guts in an academy for 15 weeks....studied 4 years worth of material...and became nationally certified...only to become lyrically raped by my own people...the people i chose to protect for the rest of my life even upon death on the fireground.

Man you are dillusional. Just do your job and STFU, if you think you are being taken advantage of and being raped by the taxpayers of Utica I suggest you quit and go elsewhere to earn a living because believe it or not, we do not need you or the likes of you. While you are crying in your beer stating you are giving your blood and guts real heroes are giving their lives and blood in the military in war zones and they are not complaining about their pay, you should be ashamed of yourself for your statements. Many men and women did your job before you exisited on the the UFD and believe it or not the UFD does not need you either, do not think you are indispensible because no one is indispensible so be thankful you have a job in this day and age in Utica. I hope no firefighter loses their life or gets hurt but here is a little history for you, the last Utica Firefighter that died on the Job was Captain Summers, who had a heart attack in the cellar of a building on Bleecker Street in 1948 some 64 years ago so I would say the law of average for you losing your life, blood, or guts is very slim. Matter of fact firefighting is not even in the most 10 dangerous jobs in the United States.

I was just looking at the OD Sunday Paper Adds, Rite Aide has a sale on Jergens Hand Lotion, buy one get one free. I suggest you take advantage of the sale because you are really a stroker.

It is alright to take pride in your job but when you have to promote yourself as a hero giving your blood and guts it makkes me think someone better come down to reality. Like I said before it sickens me when we have self proclaimed heroes that want more, more, more when we have the true heroes of our society fighting for our way of life diening every day and they never complain. Remember one thing, if you are a hero you do not need to tell anyone, they will tell you when you deserve our praise. This bullshit is taught by their leader who is a valor theft culprit.

The firefighters never used the word hero.. and arent asking for praise. The slogan "above and beyond the call.." is something for each firefighter to strive for and live up too.. similar to police depts saying "to protect and serve". So get over it. Many firefighters in Utica take pride in their job and feel honored to give their all to serve Utica. For some reason, that really strikes a nerve with you. Would you rather they show up to work feeling indifferent about their duties?

Seems to me you have a problem with everything... the chief, the slogan, the staffing, the overtime, the brass, the number of officers, The men being proud, the ambulance, their fireground performance, the cheifs military records... and every miniscule issue in between...

we've heard it all from you. the UFD can do nothing right in your eyes. thats why nobody takes your incessant griping seriously. You have personal issues from back in the day when you worked there, and i can understand that. you arent the only one. but jesus christ youve been retired for years. and you dont have to deal with anyones crap anymore, thats the beauty of retiring. so let go of the unrelenting hatred and criticisms of all things UFD and let the men do their jobs. you will feel much better i promise.

And to tell a Firefighter who is expressing his pride for his occupation to "do your job and STFU" in unbeleivable. Would you say that to a doctor? A police officer? A Nurse? You are just a good old fashioned Utica-style "Fireman-Basher"

The last time I checked the citizens and taxpayers of this country have a right to voice their opinions. I never had any gripe against the UFD as long as they do their job and do not bullshit the public. For 20 years I listened to crybabies belittle Utica residents, saying I would never live in Utica, my kids are too good for Utica schools and I do not want them in that enviroment, I seen the brass gouge themselves with ovetime at the taxpayers expense, I seen personnel back stab each other for promotions, seniortity meant nothing once a chief's son got on the job, but most of all what really bothers me is that the non resident firefighters of the UFD were the first ones to want raises and better benefits but they did not want to support the city that put food in their families mouth. They contributed to the fall of this city along with police who chose not to live here but wanted the jobs the taxpayers afforded them. To me they are carpetbaggers and I do not respect them and never will. As far as the Chief's military record, you can tell him this for me. Any person who steals valor and claims that they were in a combat war and in reality never was is probally the lowest of the low and disrespects the men and women who served proudly alive and deceased. I will not let that go unnoticed because I know individuals who gave their all for our country and military and they should not be slighted by valor theft. The UFD was a very respected department when I was appointed and the men did their jobs without recognition and it bothered no one. Today we hear almost every day the bullshit propaganda about putting their lives on the line every day and to be frank, I am sick of it. Like I said before, just do your job and STFU and Beef Cake if you do not like it I suggest you STFU. One last thing, I hear a lot of UFD personnel on this board stating they are not happy with the way they are appreciated by the Utica residents, I suggest they quit because we do not need them they need us, and that goes for the cops to.
