hahahaha you arent kidding
Picture this.. 2 in the morning, your entire family is sleeping and a fire happens to break out in your house, nobody hears smoke alarms for whatever reason, and there needs to be a quick search and rescue for you, your spouse and your children. But wait, theres no fire fighters on duty, because you wanted to get rid of the 24 hr shifts, and lower the cost by taking away 9 fire fighters from the department. So, then it takes double the time for this to happen since people need to leave from home to get to the station to get to the scene, instead of already being manned at the station. You will never understand how vital firefighters are to a city until something like this happens to someone close to you, especially in your own family. If the city does not qant to pay for overtime they should hire a few more firefighters and not pay the OT out. And do go there for the fire fighters not being stressed, many of them work on Ambulances as well, if thats the route youre going to go down. They face just as much disease as a medic would, because many of them are EMT's to medics.
It is not like it was 100 yrs ago with all the fires there were then, but now when a fire breaks out, it is twice as dangerous with all the things burning in the fire. So, I dont know about you, but I want my Fire fighters at work training at all times, so when something happens to my family, they are there to respond and know what they are doing. This is tax money well spent.
He is just doing his job.. Its idiots like these people that give us hunters a bad name.. trepassing, poaching and hunting under the influence have no place in hunting and these people should be fined and thrown in jail. Because of these people we may not have a place to hunt soon. I say good job to him, hunt, fish, boat, or fourwheel etc legally and they wont bother you.
