This guy is great!

The WSJ piece truly is ridiculous, wrong about almost everything & is irresponsible for them to have produced with so many inaccuracies. This post is a necessary response to correct the falsehoods in it. . A few years ago, San Mateo County firefighters/paramedics in Redwood City (from the fire station on Myrtle St.) saved my life at about 3am (with a response time around 2 minutes) from a severe, definitely imminently life-threatening allergic reaction to a new medication. They were all clearly medically skilled, well-educated, knowledgeable & well-trained while also very kind, compassionate & caring. Also, they are definitely very fit people. Couldn't have asked for better 1st responders. They are excellent at what they do & their team work is also impeccable Appreciate our firefighters & paramedics more than I can express, I'm alive today because of them & I will always be in their corner.

Menlo Park Firefighters want to thank everyone who has donated funds to their food drive online and sponsored a child. Even with all the community support we were still 32 children short of the 419 child objective as of last night. However, that all changed when the ‘East Palo Alto Police Officers Association’ stepped to the plate at brought us home by sponsoring the remaining 32 children.

We love to banter with our brothers and sisters who wear blue on the Law Enforcement side of the house (everyone knows they secretly wish to be firefighters). But seriously, over the past decade we have watched their profession be plagued with bad press, poor public opinion and attacks (verbal and at times even physical). There is no doubt that Police Officers currently have a far tougher time just doing their job.

Thank you East Palo Alto Police Officers. We just want to say ‘hats off to our heroes.’ You all have golden hearts.

OVER ONE HUNDRED YEARS OF SERVICE

In Tampa, as with other major American cities, the evolution from all volunteer to career fire companies occurred due to the arrival of steam technology. Tampa’s first organized volunteer fire department was founded in1884. Seven “bucket brigades” were organized to serve the city. On May 10, 1895, the city council passed ordinance #307 authorizing Tampa’s first professional, paid fire department. A. J. Harris was named chief to preside over 22 fire fighters in five stations at an annual budget of $18,000. The paid firefighters worked in the stations for ten to twelve days at a time. Most of the firefighters lived near their duty stations and were permitted to go home for meals, provided they could return within one hour. Their salary was equivalent to that of police patrol officers, about $600 a year. From May 10, 1895, forward the fire department began to evolve. First the “bucket brigades” were slowly replaced by hand operated pumpers pulled to the scene by the firefighters. Fire hydrants and steam engines were introduced to do the work of pumping water to firefighter’s hoses. With the introduction of steam engines came the requirement of horses to pull the extremely heavy apparatus.  read more
