One thing missing from the discussion about shutting down the heavy rescue and Haz Mat units, what is the plan to deal with a second call that comes in for the rescue or haz mat while the much further away units are already committed to a call? Part of having more than one set of response units is to assist and to deal with second calls. Cutting out needed response units is never a good idea. And the ignorance of the politians and firefighter haters on this site is increasingly getting more and more entertaining. The misinformation and out and out lies are just hilarious.

Well said Buddy and Croc1. Your articulate means of getting your thought across are a welcome read compared to the rantings of birdie and his ilk. I am a 30 year firefighter, not in your jurisdiction, and welcome your rational to the un-rational rantings that are common on this site. Has your city done a satisfaction survey of the taxpayers? Ours did and the fire department came away with a 97% very satisfactory rating from the public. I believe that most of the public doesn't take the rantings of the firefighter haters very seriously, but it does make for entertaining reading.

Why would anyone even consider listening to birdie, when his sole thought process is fire the fire department. He is named well as we all know that a bird has a very small pea sized brain. On this topic, which is about another union, he is the first poster to get off topic and that was with the first post. It's nice to know in our county, people that exibit the paranoid delusion that birdie does, would be locked up in a place where they couldn't hurt themselves any further.

My God are all people in Nevada as stupid as the firefighter haters that I see on this site. You morons that think you can replace a professional fire department with volunteers in a city the size of Las Vegas really need to stop smoking crack. As to the "fire them all" idiots, grow up and change your tactics, this one is growing really tiresome. Unreal that some of you dimwits think that you can eliminate an essential service and replace it with Bubba from down the street and still expect to survive an emergency incident. Un frickin real the level of stupidity of some of the firefighter haters.
And thank God I don't live in your state, where I live we still respect and appreciate our firefighters.

I had a friend do some checking and it turns out that birdiedreamin ACTUALLY applied to the fire department in 2007 and wasn't smart enough to get by the aptitude test. So it appears that his/her rants are from a person that has a large chip on his/her shoulder. Take the comments from an individual that is hoping the county starts over in hiring firefigthers with a lower standard of testing so he/she can get on. Check for yourself and see the truth.
