    Arrow Response time and Firehouse closing discussion

    Here is a link to recent testimony given by Chief Dunn on response time and firehouse closings. It is brief although there are some interesting facts and figures presented.

    Somewhere between genius and insanity!


    The lcoals representing the firefighters of the FDNY should take out full page ads in the Post, Daily News and the Times with this information...because you know that the politicians

    Chief Dunn tells it like it is...unlike those lying "bahstid" politicians and their yes men who forgot where they came from!

    I did print it out...so when the time comes to talk about cutting FD budgets in my community... a little ammunition will be stored!

    Excellent commentary from Chief Dunn, as I expected.

    I hope someone who can do something about the problem has seen or heard this.

    Good Luck to the FDNY on this one.

    The psycho mayor of my city had a study done and intends to close a few companies and lay guys off. Seeing as how the jackarses referenced Chief Dunn in their study, our union went down to talk with Chief Dunn and he will be coming next week to testify on our behalf. Apparently he doesn't agree with their findings either. It seems the company that did the study does not want to come back and prove their facts. Chief Dunn will be coming to see the city and visit the stations. I will be working those days and hope to get to meet him.

    Chief Dunn must be a very influential guy! He was in a couple of our training videos for backdrafts and flashovers.

    Man, you just gotta love politicians! I wish they wouldn't close firehouses, its just not right!
