    As for the Chief saying he can't enforce it, BS. Yes you can. Sure, no on wants to, but he CAN. As for the ex-chief, if he isn't listed on the insurance for the FD and works the call, he could get into or get the FD into serious trouble.
    And you know this because of your many years in the fire service?


    Oh wait.

    Agreed and it sucks!

    And what's wrong with being democratic to maintain numbers? There are some chiefs that can pull off the "it's my way or the highway" manner of running the station, but there's a lot to be said for being democratic most of the time, and autocratic only when necessary.
