  • Crap like this makes me so mad!!! DH and BIL are volunteer firemen. I was at the station with them the day they got their "new" hand me down turn out gear that had been donated. It was a triumphant day for our station. We now have enough turn out gear that evey member has a set. Prior to this donation several of our volunteers had no gear and those that did had gear that was extremely old and worn.

  • Holy Crap! Thats pretty stupid! I could never understand why there is never enough funding for fire departments and life squads, guess its going where alot of funds go- straight to useless places.

  • This makes utterly no sense! Now, the money was awarded for FY 2008 according to the article....so does that mean it's already gone?

    If this is "Homeland Security" then I think I feel less secure without the department.
