    Doc, you really are showing your butt. Sounds to me like it is a sincere question from someone who needs help. Is this how you treat guys on your FD??? I hope not. From the posts of yours I have seen, you are starting to come off as a self important turd. RAISE UP the young and new, don't slap them down!

    To the original poster, Paid or volly should NEVER be the question when looking at apparatus purchases. The deciding factor should be whether or not it is needed. Spend time on justifying why you need one, more so than "But other vollies have truck companies too!" If you can prove the need for the equipment and be ready with answers when the pols start asking questions, you come out better in the end.

    Dumb question- Why do you care what "the city" thinks? It's your area, buy what you want.
