How many bugles does it take?
There is a fire chief here in FL who lost a vote of no confidence, but the City manager decided to keep him anyway. Shortly after that fiasco the chief decided to increase his number of bugles on his badge from 5 to 6.
I have never heard of 6 bugles on a badge. How can he justify this? There are 16 fire departments in his County. Every chief has 5 bugles. He has 6- and his is not the largest department.
He's flaunting his equipment?
Steamer, I thought you were being serious, but that's pretty funny. Then again, sad; I don't think he's qualfied to use ANY of it!.
Fact: The collar brass he now wears cost the tax payers a $1500 set up fee, and any futher orders are a new fee.
All this for 6 bugles on a guy that barely stands 5' 6". Napoleon anyone?
All the other chiefs in the County laugh at him. Go to your City manager and say I demand 6 bugles. Where do you think you will end up? He ended up with 6 bugles. But then again, the city manager hates the IAFF. Go figure!
