I am interested to see how the merger and turnover goes, I hope that Cal Fire provides the same level of service they do to the rest of the county, and I hope they are received well, while it is sad that a volunteer department is shutting its doors, it is going to be for the better, hell who knows maybe it is possible that a small volunteer unit or type 2 wildland team can be established. I wish that the community receives cal Fire well because they are dedicated professionals just as the JCVFD was.
Here comes higher taxes for fire protection. And shit for service. Im surprised mr. walker can fit his big head inside his helmet!
WTH??? Damn sorry to hear this!
Marshall Pagan, you are ignorant of the California and OSHA Laws that require the EXACT SAME TRAINING FOR ALL DEPARTMENTS and Fire Fighters.
Here. Educate yourself and stop listening to Union drivel.
calling it kind of early no?
You know that if a person gets hurt that's visiting that community and does not receive the proper trained attention that community going to get sued. I would never in my life trust a fucking volunteer with my life they are not vetted. They are fucking volunteers for a reason. I say don't visit that community don't send your money there to support stupid.
Opponents of retirement security were hit with another blow in court. The U.S. Supreme Court has refused to review the California Supreme Court's ruling against the pension-slashing San Diego Proposition B. The state court ruled that the city council didn't follow state labor law in pushing the measure through.
Score 1 goal for the GOOD GUYS! People choose to work for local government agencies for lower pay and longer hours... because at the end 20 to 30 years of service they get a decent well earned direct benefit pension and they don't have to eat cat food and live under a bridge like so many other Californians do.
Unions are the last real middle class careers left in America. Politicians, Corporations and Public Administrators want US ALL WORKING FOR MINIMUM WAGE.
Everytime the under informed voter incorrectly slashes out at Civil Servants you're helping Socialism take over OUR COUNTRY.
