I always like the fact Fire District Volunteers say they "do it for free" while in fact they get a 25% reduction in property taxes, free college, retirement and a pension from the Fire districts, plus they all get a one week paid vacation for FREE and Free Insurance, add in all the discounts the ask for in local stores they get allot for Volunteer service.

Plus all the perks of using Fire equipment at home, use of Kitchens and over the top catering Halls and clubs in these Fire houses.

These over the top Fire houses have got to stop on Long island they are putting us in a financial crisis with too much equipment thatís never used and the over the top fire houses less then 1 mile from one another.

Volunteers: know abuser, unnecessary renovations , purchasing unneeded equipment, SUV Fire Dept issued more out of town then in town, when in town you see them in the BARS.

These Volunteer Fire Districts need to Merge, stop buying, stop building, and stop renovating and stop buying SUV every 3 years, CUT BACKS.
