    I would like a year with a total of zero line of duty deaths.

    We just got a new truck. Really pretty and shiney, but for Christmas I'd like someone to steal the fancy 12 step Vulcan logic game that the manufacturer provided as SCBA mounts, complete with the fancy snaps, locks and pull strings,etc.

    Then maybe we could go back to the basic, old, firefighter-proof mounts that push in and pull out.

    No LODD's, a new Rescue, new station, and two new captains. Oh and a nice new N5A.

    That's why a shared vision for the future is what I want for the dept. for Christmas.

    Actually the sad thing is, in 1971 (not sure how much before that, early 60's I think) we had an ambulance service...up into the mid to late 80's. That makes us "regressive" I suppose. There are a couple of the older guys still on the dept., like my grandpa, who were EMT's before we sold the ambulances and got out of the business, that would love to see at least rapid response EMS become a reality again. It will by January 2007<----that's me being determined. When I get determined people tend to hide or say, "Ohh jeeze, what now??" Not sure why though. It only took a few months to revise our bylaws the last time I got determined.
