    Never mind the fact that you bought into the premise of this thread based upon a story that is a complete falsehood.
    And yes, I was incorrect about the fire department involvement.

    So was the rest of the story. Yet you bought it hook, line, and sinker.

    I guess you missed th articles where the crews from Alabama stated that these claims were not true.

    Management is making sure things are done right. Leadership is doing the right thing. The fire service needs alot more leaders and a lot less managers.

    "Everyone goes home" is the mantra for the pussification of the modern, American fire service.


    Comments made are my own. They do not represent the official position or opinion of the Fire Department or the City for which I am employed. In fact, they are normally exactly the opposite.

    I would stay from folks like Breitbart.

    In another era they would have been called muckrakers.

    NJ is not turning away anyones help.... Crews from Ohio restored power to my area. I couldn't thank them enough, union or non-union.


    On a different note, has anyone heard from Bones42.... He lives in an area that got hammered.

    One article even stated that their are local, municipal power companies that employ linemen unaffiliated with the IBEW. So I find it hard to think they'd turn away outside help that isn't IBEW. There is so much anti-union garbage out there, I wouldn't be surprised if the admin bailed as soon as anything with an IBEW seal, even if it was a gift basket saying "thanks for helping"

    Until yesterday I had never even heard of them. They have certain stories where videos or interviews from other news agencies are used or embedded and it cane make things a little difficult to see whose story you are actually reading.

    As you should on this one.

    Based on what came up for me off your link, it's a horribly written "news" article. NO WHERE in the article does it state WHO supposedly refused the assistance of the non-union labor! This should've been a "red flag" for you right away rather than assume the refusal came directly from any labor union.

    I am here. We got hammered, not as bad as towns we respond mutual aid to, but bad. And the story is a lie. All help has been accepted.

    Black feathers on my lips... The story got me. However, I had read it in other media, not from Breitbart, so I don't feel AS bad.

    More important than anything is that you Jerseyites, New Yawkers, and other assorted People Who Don't Talk Like Me are all OK. Best of luck in the recovery.

    Then follow this link:

    http://dailycaller.com/2012/11/03/am...-or-stay-home/

    It also has a PDF of the "contract" the IBEW insisted upon before letting people help out. I don't know where you got your news but, maybe Breitbart isn't that far off the mark after all. Or, is Barry Moline, executive director of Florida Municipal Electric Association full of hokum too?

    I'll take the word of the department heads over the Daily Caller.

    No one knows where this letter originated. That says a lot right there.

    As far as femas response -they are throwing as many people as they can on it. As much presence as possible,but are we getting the help where it is needed faster than katrina? not that I can see.

    is it becoming a recurring theme that LAFireEducator is right? Because scfire86 is totally wrong in what FEMA is supposed to do, what USAR can do, and how the local needs to ask the state who needs to ask FEMA for help, FEMA can't just take over because they want to. And that doesn't matter if you are in the middle of nowhere or big city department

    damn, another win for LAFire, what's the world coming to?
