Amazing that a fire could have gotten that far out of control with all the traffic on Riverside. Seems like someone walking or driving past it would have seen it. The only thing that survived was the garage. Total loss.

....And called NHFD for the second fire only to cancel right away. And yet Chief Brooks feels the need to take over all the suburbs!!!

Unreal. He needs to get a clue. Who is helping who here?!!!

Your right we need to purchase one so we don't have to call the volunteers for equipment, Of course the city will have to bond for the monies, and then tax rate will go up.But that dose not worry you your people have not paid taxes for 3 generations JERK be informed before you open your fly trap,,but wait all you city residents that want FD cuts wait till its your house or your neighbors burning ,,, save some money so the city can blow it on flowers, Pay your tax .. and you get police and fire and plowed streets sometime,,,,

Hey jerk.
Your a friggin moron. Here's a thought.... Move your ghetto ass out of that dump city. Move to the suburbs and enjoy a good quality of life like the rest of us. Nope. You're such an asshat that you will stay there and be taxed to death for public safety. Good luck. We will stick with our "volunteers". They live in there communities and have a vested interest in seeing it safe and sound.

With all of the revenue from the "Scambulance", you should be able to afford one of your own. Get a clue.

Awesome post Shiela!

Wish these city folk would clam up and deal with the mess they themselves allowed. Don't come insulting the suburbs but yet want us to bail you city folk out. You and your elected politicos made the mess.... You all can clean it up.

It would be more correct to say "Stop paying all that ambulance overtime so you can afford one of your own."

There's more to that whole ambulance issue. Now that politicans passed a law for the city to keep that farce service they will now move into ways to beef up the gravy train coming in. Brooks knows there is little money to be made in simply taking over fire districts in the suburbs. The money is peanuts and prob wouldn't pay one or two of the men's salaries. It's all about that ambulance. You can bet your moms fine china that if he can finagle a way to have UFD protecting the suburbs he will then angle that ambulance service there as well. Further pushing out Kunkel Edwards etc etc. Peeps in the suburbs have that golden ticket called health insurance and he will bill these folks to high heaven. He can go on and on publicly about babies needing assistance and fires burning out of control but It's all about the almighty dollar with this guy. He will not stop until he is removed from his post by some future mayor with courage and conviction.
