  5. I agree it's not an apples to apples comparison. I'm not 100% sure what he's talking abut but The Villages has a large stand alone department that is not run by Rural Metro and is an IAFF local, I believe the same is true for the County Fire Rescue. YES, The Villages, Florida Public Safety Department Is IAFF Local 3990 And The Department's Members Are ALL Paid Fair Salaries And Benefits. In Addition, The Villages Runs & Finances The Villages Charter Schools ( Pre-K Thru High School ) For ALL That Work In The Villages, It Is One Of The Highest-Rated Districts In Florida, 96% Of It's Graduates Go On To Higher Education And MANY Return To Work In Or Around The Villages. Our Water Department, Sewer Department And Garbage Collection Are Run By A Private Contractor And Our Current Form Of Government Does NOT Need Mayor, City Manager And Council People Making Outrageous Salaries With Benefits. We Have Eleven (11) Community Development Districts With Elected Officials That Serve For FREE Because They Are Proud Of Our Community And It's Management. The Days Of 100k Firefighter Salaries And Too Many 150k Chiefs Is On It's Way Out In Westchester, The Taxpayers Can NO LONGER Handle This Tax Burden Folks !!!!!!!!!!
  6. I Worked As A Dispatcher For 32 Years, 24 With The New Rochelle Fire Dept. And 8 With Westchester County Fire Control And NEVER Realized The Waste Of Taxpayer Money Until I Moved To The Villages In Sumter County, Florida. This Affluent County 45 Miles North Of DisneyWorld Is Covered By Sumter County Fire-Rescue And ALL EMS And Dispatch Operations ( Police & Fire ) Are Operated By Rural-Metro. Our Localities Are Offered The Option Of Having Their Own Fire Protection Services And Certain Standards Have To Be Met. The Villages Is The Fastest Growing Metro Area In The U.S. And Will Hit 140,000 Population In 5-6 Years At It's Current Growth Rate. The Villages Developers ( The Morse Family ) Have A Fire Protection Assessment Added To Our Taxes, And It Is Added To Our Yearly Tax Bills. We Currently Run An ALL Sutphen Fleet Of 4 Engines, 1 Squad, 2 Mid-Mount Aerials And A 95' Aerial Tower. ALL Stations Are Strategically Placed For Response Throughout The Villages And 90% Of The Calls Are EMS. Each Station Has A Ford F-Series Quick Response Vehicle That Is Used By 2 Members Of Each Crew For EMS Responses, Leaving The Remaining Crew In Quarters For Fire Responses. After Comparing The Cost Of Fire Protection In My NEW County Of Sumter And OLD County Of Westchester I Would Advise The IAFF Unions In Westchester To Encourage Implementation Of The Westchester 2000 Plan Or Rural-Metro Will Be Making Inroads In Your Territory And Will Be Much MORE Successful Than The Rye Brook Fiasco A Number Of Years Back. They Are Already Formulating Proposals To Man Westchester County Dispatch Operations, So Beware My Friends, The Taxpayers In ALL Westchester Cities, Towns And Districts Are Looking For Dollar Saving Budgets That DO NOT BREAK The Bank !!!!!!
  7. When Will The Westchester 2000 Plan Be Implemented To Form A Westchester County Fire Department And Avoid Duplication Of Services, Too Many Officer Positions And Outrageous Fire Department Budgets ????
  8. Rob, I Have 3 Gamewell Boxes In This Condition That I Am Selling In Addition To A Gamewell Tape Register Alarm System If You Know Anyone Looking For Same. Boxes Are $300.00 Each, Alarm Sysytem Is $450.00 JpM
  9. Well Stated Barry, Westchester Departments Spend MORE Time Specing Million Dollar Rigs And Multi-Million Dollar Firehouses And MOST Departments Can't Muster Up Enough Equipment To Fight A Small House Fire, It's VERY, VERY Sad !!!!!!
  10. The Villages, Florida Dept. Of Public Safety Has A Beautifully Restored Open Cab ALF Pumper ( ALWAYS Stored Indoors ) And Would Be Interested In Obtaining An ALF Open Cab MMA. John P. Maguire

  12. What Have WE Become ? How Sad Is This........!!!!WITH REGRET America idolized and memorialized Whitney Houston, yet looked the other way concerning her well known substance abuse and tumultuous life with singer Bobby Brown. Charlie Sheen is 45 and his story is all over the news because he is a substance abuser, an adulterer, sexually promiscuous and obnoxious.Lindsay Lohan is 24 and her story is all over the news because she is a celebrity drug addict and thief.Something as...
