    Default The K33 thread is dead. Leave Your Condolences Here.

    Well after nearly 30 pages, the WT locked it down this morning. While I took no part or responsibility in making it, I enjoyed the entertainment value immensely.

    I'm still grieving ( ), and I'm sure it will be missed by all, so leave your condolences here.


    RIP K33 Thread.

    What bugs me about stuff like the Kentland deal is alot of guys on here preach and preach about not being a monday morning quarterback but who are the first ones to beat up Kentland??? Yep you got it, our own monday morning QBs. I have respect for the guys and with near 7000 calls/year for a 100% volunteer company, I dont know how anyone couldnt. Dont knock them till you've walked a mile in their shoes.

    At least they only locked it and didn't make it disappear into thin air, because I'm about 10 days behind on that thread and it would have sucked for it to be deleted!

    "In the past weeks where more firefighters have once again died in the line of duty, are there not more productive things to do?"

    I think this comment is funny......wasn't it just a couple months ago when people were complaining about FH for not having LODD as the top story on the website? I think its a little hypocritical when the initial LODD report was a on the second line under the story about Village firehouses.

    But they are in charge so they choose how things are run. I at least have a front seat to the saga. Perhaps you all can refer to the National Enquierer aka Watchdesk for updates.

    Not at all, I didn't intend to carry on the arguement(s), just a little Lampoon of the "seriousness" of the original subject matter.

    I found it surprising that the thread made it as long as it did. Usually, the lockdown comes sooner.


    I have already received a very polite PM from the WT, and this thread is certainly as pointless as the original. So if they honestly feel that it will disrupt our little "hippie-love-fest" here in the Off-Duty Forums, they are more than welcome to lock and/or delete it too.

    We all know it won't be last we see or hear of Kentland 33.

    I knew you didn't intend it that way. And I agree with the rest of your post 100%.

    Read the new statement by the Director of News Ops

    The Firehouse.Com News Team will make the decision on LODD headline placement based on the impact of the event, the circumstances surrounding the event, NOT the amount of honor to be given to the fallen firefighter. Such honor in our eyes remains constant, equal, and sacred on our Web site no matter the headline location.

    This looks like a setup of epic proportion. No way I am going there.

    It is pretty funny though - Freudian perhaps. Like the time I asked for two tickets to Pittsburgh but instead asked for two pickets........

    PRESS RELEASE FROM KENTLAND VOLUNTEER FIRE DEPARTMENT

    Friday, August 31, 2007- On Wednesday, August 29, 2007 the leaders of Kentland Volunteer Fire Department, Incorporated met with the leaders of the Prince Georgeís County Fire Department, including Deputy Chief Administrative Officer for Public Safety Director Vernon Herron.

    Many issues were discussed about staffing the ambulance, housing, and relationships between personnel. We believe to be working in the same direction with the members of Kentland Volunteer Fire Department and with Prince Georgeís County Officials.

    To date the county has agreed to staff the ambulance, and our department is seeking housing facilities for the extra personnel assigned to the station. Space will be made available in the existing building to house the ambulance, for safety and security issues.

    These possible arrangements will be discussed at our next company meeting, which is Tuesday, September 4, 2007. At the conclusion of our meeting it was requested that some consideration be made to terminate the restriction placed on Kentland (33) to respond out of their 1st due area. It was brought to the attention of the Fire Department leadership that it has been over 9 days that the citizens have been neglected emergency service in surrounding areas. During the Labor Day weekend staffing of surrounding stations are reduced and the call for emergency services increased.

    The Kentland Volunteer Fire Department does not condone this policy, and wants it to be on record that any harm brought to the citizens and visitors of the county during this restriction of service shall not blemish our willingness to serve the community.

    The leadership and members of Kentland Volunteer Fire Department would like to express our sincere gratitude to many of the county council members and several state officials for their understanding and support during these trying times.

    Wishing everyone a wonderful and safe Labor Day
    ______________________________ ____________________

    As far as I know, the restriction continues. {at the time of this posting, this thread had 339 views.}

    Default Rally report

    33's front ramp is filled with people: 150 to 200
    Looks like ten pumpers arrived, many from the other volunteer organizations in PG

    Someone is making a speech - looks like one of those union organizing rallys of the 1930s.
