You know, all these cut backs coming from a former police officer and an active fire chief lets me know where their hearts...its all about the $. Remind me not to ask them to help me in an emergency.

Hey Kevin and Phil, why don't you two take a pay cut so these firefighters can keep their jobs so they can continue to support their families and keep us safe. Phil, my Dad would be (I am) so disappointed in you for ever suggesting to compromise the safety of the public. He gave his life doing this job because he believed in what he did...he saved lives! There is no doubt in my mind that the cuts can be made somewhere else! Is this why Kevin made you chief again?

That is just so sad. I just hope that they never get a call to go to one of their homes. You know pay cuts seem to slow people down.

I totally agree I called 911 several days ago for an accidental heroin overdose No one came for 46 min. I'm an rn and did everything possible to keep this person alive. She died 3 min before anyone came!

We still have the pretty much the same amount of homes they are just not all occupied (which makes them even more dangerous). Our fast food, sit down restaurants, and shopping area's are still here. We still have retired and elderly folk that can not wait 45 minutes on assistance in the event of a heart attach or stroke! How many times do our firefighters and police officers put themselves in harms way for us and OTHER communities in our county! What about the 2...

What about the 2 tragic deaths of our K9's.......Just remember people you get what you pay for and I for one think our firefighters and police officers are worth every dime!

City FFs' are always on call 24/7/365 on station and ready to roll on a moments notice, in a fire truck/rescue or Ambulance. Laying off 22 firefighters could put YOU in jepordy if YOU would need them and they could not get to u quickly as they did before being laid off.
