    Question need alittle help here.......

    Here is one of those issues that we really never come across. We were just notified by top brass that our city auto insurance has been dropped, and it will take "some time" to get another insurance company. We (the firefighters) have been ordered by the chief not to respond on the apparatus, however the chief has ordered the officers to responded with the uninsured apparatus if there is a working fire. any thoughts on this.........

    I've never heard of such crazy-ness! How do the city risk managers respond to this? Can't they just call up another insurer and be covered today? If not I would call the neighboring communities and see if you can use some of thier spare apparatus. Who's going to run calls?

    they have it set up where our mutal/auto aid companies will run the calls, but the chief wants our officers to drive one engine to any call for a structure fire. so now we have 4 people sitting in the house getting paid not to go on calls.....

    Amateurs practice until they get it right; professionals practice until they cannot get it wrong. Which one are you?

    'The fire went out and nobody got hurt' is a poor excuse for a fireground critique.

    It's BS? Awww, too bad. My legally-trained salivary glands were working overtime, thinking I had found my big payoff.
