    Big ax looming at the FDNY: Threat of 1,000 layoffs, closing of 62 fire companies


    One thousand fireman I think would be the entire Fire Department here in Calgary (pop 1 mill)

    The FDNY is bracing for doomsday.

    The department will be forced to close a staggering 62 fire companies and lay off more than 1,000 firefighters if the bad-news state budget becomes reality, Commissioner Salvatore Cassano told the City Council Wednesday.

    "We would be very, very taxed," warned a grim-faced Cassano. "Our operations would be impacted and every neighborhood in this city would feel the effect."

    These things never play out as seriously as the department officials claim they could. It's like when states say that they'll have to lay off 40,000 teachers if they don't get that desperately-needed infusion of cash from the fed gov.
    People sleep peaceably in their beds at night only because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf.

    A New Yorker who doesn't think we should boost firefighter funding?

    Better plan: Sell off the trucks! Those things are expensive, and we can just use buckets, right?
