Ok, here is a question, your department has a equiptment budget of 10,000$ for the year and that has to cover all your EMS needs as well. So lets say u are now down to about 7,000. what would spend this on. Bear in mind that if u do not spend it u lose it since the commisioners dont roll it over to the following years budget they stick it into a slush account that has well over $300,000 dollars in it that they are not telling people about. OH yea u cant use the slush account either, that is theres to use to buy new trucks with, at least that is there excuse. One other question here now that i think about it, any guess on how much a fire commisioner gets paid yearly, to do a job that they hide from the public.
