  1. Rye Brook has hired one of the fired Port Chester firefighters . Its a start !
  2. Have been off line for a few months and now living upstate . Did R/Metro go out of business as there units are showing up with new paint and AMR logos on them
  3. See I think better then Stamford , more coming !
  4. Thank you Beavis you got it as I was typing
  5. Well it just got a lot deeper, We in the dept new about this for a year now . Can someone put the new's 12 story for today about the so called dept head . and yes please be sitting when you here this story !
  6. 3 of the 6 of the village board are removed from office on Friday after it was found out that they did not sign there oath of office after there election on March 15 . They had 30 days to do so . Gee I wonder how they found out ?
  7. Out of the last 8 that let go , All
  8. It won't take long for it to go sour, stay tuned .
  9. Just a reminder , the Port Chester Career staff was at 16 . 8 is all that is left after retirements that were not filled. So this has been coming in my eyes for a few years .
  10. They kept saying one career firefighter on one fire engine shows up and they are correct. What they are not doing is finishing the rest of the story . When I got hired we had 16 strong career with 400 Volunteers with about 300 give or take and the rest [ 100 ]the older members . The Career staff runs Engine 58 and Engine 59 . When a call came in on the fire phone the firefighter at HQ answered the call and got the info . When it was determined whos call it was [ Eng58 lower Port Chester ] with most of the work or Eng 59 with more area but less work [ mostly bedroom but some very large buildings [ General foods 1900 by 500 ] and so on . If it was 58's call he would stop talking and the Sta. 4 firefighter [ Eng 59 ]would get the rest of the info with 58 hitting the road mostly in 60 or so sec. I pulled up to many working fires to find Volunteer firefighters either already standing there or in the building looking for people or the fire . Engine 58 & 59 have 800 gallon tanks and preconnect lines more scotts to handle the guys already on location .the firefighters would take the lines in and starting to attack the fire . As a rule we did not hit hydrants but had the tools to do so . The next in engine would supply 58 or 59 .That is what was taken away from the dept .
  11. The 3 stooge's in charge have asked the captains for a list of volunteers that will work over night to cover the Rye Brook station . 5 of the 7 company's so far have turned them down with no answer from the other 2 .
  12. How do the Chiefs stand , they did it was all there idea . Now Rye Brook has started there legal action and like you said it will now all come out . This may be just as good as The Stamford topic !
  13. My hands are still shaking over this . I was at Gulliver's and as you all know to well that it is the early stages of the fire that are the most critical and that night we through firefighters after firefighters at the rescue side of it and saved over 100 but that was when Engine 58 had a 2 man crew and Engine 59 had a 2 man crew because there where 16 on the job and the Volunteer side had men hanging off the rigs because there where no seats left to sit in. Port Chester is a very busy dept and the call volume will burn out the volunteers going to the small calls like CO ,trash, brush, car, and what ever in the middle of the night . One of the Chiefs is a member on here .
  14. Don't worry about where I came from , NOBODY AND I MEAN NOBODY spoke to the board about the jobs but firefighters . The pubic does not care about the jobs and that is my point , all they care about is tax's going up and that's what I meant by not to focus on the guys because they [ pubic don't care ] about the guy's
  15. As a member of local 1971 [ retired ] and a 44 year member of the PCFD . It's not about the firefighters it's about the community we live in and the safety of the residents that now are at risk . Most of you guys know me and know that during my career I had my share of fires over the years many and I mean many that I pulled up to by myself. Many voll pulled lines off my rig and started to attack the fire before the rest of the rigs got there . Now that element is lost We worked together well and that my fellow firefighters is what made our dept work .
