Look at all of the money she raised and where it came from. It says it all that the GOBs want her in badly and we will pay the price

Please tell us ONE thing that Tony will do to serve us. I mean other than showing up, collecting a paycheck and spiking his PERS retirement.

He certainly made a great call when he canned the LNG. LOL!

LNG would have saved Vallejo from bankruptcy. Just look at how much energy prices are nowadays, that will mean hefty revenues for City Hall. In addition, development of a gas powered engine could mean manufacture of energy efficient, less polluting vehicles at MI. Jobs and tax revenue make a lot of sense to me.

O'RLY? How much do you think it would have brought in, and how much more Fire personnel would it have required to hire to keep the city safe? Not the mother lode the unions (lied about) promised.

None

Why would more need to be hired? You an expert on required personnel?

Currently our FD cannot handle more than a house fire let alone a gas plant full of enough flammables to blow up West Vallejo.

You wouldn't set your staffing level to an outlier event like a chemical plant disaster. Mutual aid and a mix of private resources provided by the plant operator would be the typical approach.

Isn't that the truth. Our local grey haired, pony tail, sandal wearing hippies thought the Internet boom would be permanent. They thought we would all be eating yogurt, sipping lattes and hanging out downtown living off of stock dividends. Well, that didn't work out too well did it. Even the nutty plastic doll lady found out the hard way that real life means people need real jobs and real energy to run their cars and heat their homes. You have to wonder what nonsense they'll want us to get behind next time. Maybe special boutique gas for California? Maybe a scam to sell carbon credits so that their God Al Gore can get rich(er)?

You should change you name to dumb -t-urd. Do you think Benicia fire is staffed to handle Exxon going up in flames?

Each refinery in the Bay Area has it's own Fire Department that has been trained in the special requirements of that plant, and the methods of fighting/controlling safety "events". While the city Fire Departments do need extra training for that site, they are not 1st responders.

Mare Island had it's own fire department that was trained on responding to Submarine specific issues, including radiation exposure. And it was funded by Mare Island, not the City of Vallejo.

East Vallejo Native, who pays for the extra training ~ of course we do.
I don't recall the FD taking pay cuts when MI closed - when you take extra training for special needs and those needs are no longer here ... I would think you would no longer reap extra pay benefits for something that will not happen on your watch.
I would love to see how much in pay perks are paid for services that we no longer use. While its great to have 100 guys who can put out a submerged Submarine fire ... I hate to think we are padding their paychecks.
Can you identify the special training that was given? The "extra pay", you say was given (?), was that a specific $ amount paid monthly/annually or a % of hourly rate?

To answer your question: "I would love to see how much in pay perks are paid for services that we no longer use." My opinion the answer is $0.

To ease you mind about "100 guys who can put out a submerged Submarine fire ... I hate to think we are padding their paychecks." That just is not happening. Well, except maybe in your little VIB mind.

Now go back to the VIB and create concern over problems that do not exist.

Public service update to the moron that insists in being called a -t-urd: LNG had nothing to do with the below response to "just remember folks"

Well, AND you are entitled to your Opinion, as wrong as it may be.
Perhaps someone with knowledge will reply with some facts on special training that was given for handling hazardous materials on MI and what pay benefits went along with the extra training ... and if those benefits ended when MI closed.
All good questions that could have helped fund extra bodies at our FD.
Mare Island (The Navy) paid for all additional training required. I do not believe there was "hazardous duty" pay, as many of the chemical hazards exist elsewhere.

There was specific training related to orientation of the spaces within a submarine, areas that should not be entered (reactor compartment), confined space training (for tanks and the sonar dome).
hate them all
