Nov 19, 2012 Full story: The News-Gazette 6

As of Oct. 1, the Danville Fire Department does not automatically respond to certain medical emergencies, like allergic reactions, chest pains and diabetic problems, but the new policy concerns members of the firefighter's union.

We need to raise taxes! That will help the city. Also, any DHS student penetrated by an elected official and the condom breaks should be forced to take RU-486.

HazMat Experts and Firefighters petition Dow Chemical and Union Pacific for safe rail tank cars transporting gas chlorine. Secondary containment is a necessary improvement that must be implemented. See--PETITION C KIT for First Responders Comments.

It is plum ludicrous to expect a fire department to only respond to fires. If they only respond to fires, the five to ten we have per year, then what will justify their $50,000 plus year salary? We need the fire engines to respond to every call, even if Medix responds quicker and usually calls our pot-bellied firefighters off. Should the response not increase, Danville will have to buy their firefighters bigger recliners. Alas, the gay element infecting many on the department is detrimental to morale, misunderstood by wives, and results in splattered walls and faces.

TOXIC TRAIN SAFETY - A First Responders Petition caused The Chlorine Institute to conduct a five-month study comparing the safety of secondary containment to the chlorine “C”-Kit for chlorine tank cars. The study proved secondary containment to be, by far, the safest technology for containing and preventing releases of chlorine gas. To see secondary containment - search “CHLORTANKER.”

My wife was at work the other day, so I stopped be a friend's house. Let's just say that nothing could contain the spill in the hot tub that went all over Miss Kitty's ta tas. Instead of the chlortanker, she was didn't let any of the vapor spill any where else except her body. Google jiizzinator for more info.
