July 19, 2009 by Barbara

HITTING THE JACKPOT VICE MAYOR/DEPUTY CHIEF MCINTEE? …. WITH THE VFD YOU ARE!

Unnamed

(Notice the VFD shirt)…Thanks Reader…

THIS WEEK….. IT’S A LADDER TRUCK!….

WORDS OUT THAT TWO VFD CAPTAINS WENT TO WASHINGTON AND PICKED UP THE USED 100 FOOT LADDER TRUCK FOUND ON THE INTERNET!

DEPUTY CHIEF MCINTEE PAGED HIS “TROOPS” THIS AFTERNOON TO COME FOR A DRILL ON IT TONIGHT AT 7:30 PM!…..

So why is it that we are going to pay $130 again this year for our fire assessment fees?….To keep Jerry buying more and more?….

In the budget it says it is for 82 firefighters….we know that for months now the number is really around 60 if that!

Other towns such as Davie and Pompano beach will pay fire assessments fees of $104 & $108 respectively for professional departments!…

Next year the 4% increase will be $877,783.00….for just the VFD contract portion…the total fire budget is $1,025,776.00…

“ACHIEVEMENTS”….page 66 2009/2010 Budget

“Increased skills and competency of firefighters and WATER RESCUE PERSONNEL. REVISION OF DEPARTMENTS MANAGEMENT STRUCTURE AND OPERATING PROCEDURES. ISO rating of 4 measured within a 5 month assessment period. PURCHASED TWO FULLY EQUIPPED FIRST LINE TRUCKS, (The Town purchased 1 and the VFD said they purchased the 2nd one…who purchased the new ladder truck ?) JET SKI AND A FIRE BOAT TO PATROL THE INTERCOASTAL WATERWAYS. (The jet ski was NOT of any use per the presentation, per the Dep. Chief’s statement …for the potential drownings a few months back, and still no proper certified trainers to train the members/ the fire boat is not a fire boat…it has no pumper… according to those who live on the intercoastal it is a fun boat for cruising and such by McIntee and his favorites) With the town, installed safety numbered beach poles with life rings attached. Established a station watch program resulting in improved staffing of the station and response times.”

CALLING FOR AN INTERVENTION!….
