Consolidation between the county and volunteer fire departments has been coming for a while now. I myself have my own opinions from both sides. I would like to make it known that NFPA which is the standard the county staff follows, it clearly states 4 men to a truck to provide safe a safe work environment. County Fire Administration gets around this rule with the battalion chief who "floats around" and can become the fourth person on scene. Wether or not the Battalion chiefs actually respond is another question. County fire needs to fix themselves before they try and take something else over. Now on the lighter side of things, i do support all firefighters wether they are paid or volunteer, i wish you people would be a little more professional and not argue over petty things like he said she said.
