And I thought the volunteer department that I also belong to had problems. I will count my blessings for some of the childish problems I deal with each week.
Your department sounds like one of our neighboring ones--new pumpers, new rescue truck, newer ambulances with only about 8 to 10 members to staff it all--they can't get out very well during the day and need alot of mutual aid.
Just like the title from a Limp Biscuit CD "It's my way or the Highway"

Keep it safe out there, brothers and sisters . Remember 2 in and 2 out.
