  3. Please don't ask our hero firefighters to save any cats stuck in tress. They don't do that.

  4. I've actually never seen a cat stuck in a tress, whatever that is. But if one is stuck in a tree - they don't do that either.

    1. Nope,

      Green Mountain Power did all the rescueing with their equipment and personnel. Heck, the Springfield Fire Chief never even showed up, MIA! Probably home flipping burgers!

    2. Wow!, Really? I did not know that. Guess I should have figured it out when I read that Weathersfield FD was in control of the scene. All the more reason we need to know how much we're paying this absentee Chief! I won't even mention the incident where the SFD strapped a woman with a minor sprained ankle to the deck of another department's airboat , flipped it and drowned her. SFD was in command of the airboat despite their whining "It wasn't our boat" Town paid dearly!

    3. What a horrible death that must have been, poor woman.

  6. Firefighters are people just like you and I, but what they do is go above and be on what normally people might, which is run to a fire to help when they can, and put their lives on the line. They deserve our respect, and every once in awhile there is a bad one. Why does everyone have to make snide remarks, does it make you feel big?

    1. Roger, unfortunately, several of us in the community have suffered at the hands of SFD's bumbling members. Like many enterprises in Spfld, talent is increasingly in very short supply. Shame, it was once a very proud department who's members proudly marched in parades and volunteered at successful fund raisers. Beyond that, the community would be aghast at the salaries and benefits award minimally educated officers.

    2. I'd be very interested in seeing the salaries of the chief, deputy chief and officers of the SFD. I know it's Public Information but all salaries are lumped together and not broken out individually. Anybody have these numbers, please post.
