THE LBTS-VFD “STIMULUS PACKAGE”……..

Not too shabby….since Chief Perkins & Vice Mayor/Deputy Chief McIntee  have decided to reinterpret that the contract with the Town …..

Article 7- Standards Of Service…

7.2 ‘A command vehicle, transporting the Fire Chief, the Deputy Chief, or a Battalion Chief shall respond within seven (7) minutes to a minimum of 90% of ‘all emergency 911 calls’ in each month.

Putting the “spin” on it to now mean…’all emergency 911 calls’…(except overnight…and BSO police 911 emergency  calls)….and go on every EMS call (excluding overnight and BSO police 911 emergency calls)…..

BC- at odds with the pre-VFD “spin” of the “beauty of AMR” 3 on an ambulance ….No need for a firetruck…to make up for the 3rd EMS personnel…

Each VFD trainee/FF 1 & 2  who shows up at the the station within 20 minutes of these medical calls gets $10 per call….  go on the call….or not….

So lately you figure a VFD member can make an average of $40 a day…plus the drill incentive pay…and the cookouts…the Vigilante pizza runs…along with the added McIntee motioned bonus (previous post-VFD category 9/08 minutes…) a cool $1000 for taking the FF1 exam…not passing…just taking it….

JANUARY COUNT…

Vice Mayor/Deputy Chief McIntee announced at the 2/10/09 Commission meeting 11 VFD trainees took the FF 1 exam…for certification…A VFD $11,000.00…payout…and what were the number of trainees that passed?….

Not a bad……

New game in Town…when does the VFD run out of money?….

It’s time……for the VFD what it was supposed to be…a well run organization ….There for the community when needed….and standing back when it is not…

more to come….
