Stations 16, 2, 1, and 6(Parsonsburg) just alerted for a reported "structure fire" on Merritt Mill Road. Turns out to be a garage fire and those paid firemen are freaking out screaming into the radio. Deputy Chief 1, Darrin Scott, arrives on the scene then starts screaming for the police. Then he says for "road traffic." LMFAO. WTH is road traffic.
Assistant Chief 1 requesting an additional tanker for water and then Engine Tanker 1-1 responds from Station 16. Then Wicomico Central(Justin Byrd) tells command that Engine Tanker 1-1 just "answered up" and asks him if he still wants to alert for another tanker(talks him out of it.) Command says "Nah" so they didn't alert. Then 2 minutes later command calls for another tanker so they dispatch Fruitland for a tanker. Maybe I am wrong, but wouldn't a tanker from Pittsville be quicker with a straight shot down Rt. 50? Fruitland, Station 3 has to drive slow through all that congestion in Salisbury and multiple stop lights.
That entire fire is one Cluster F***!! And they think that the paid firemen in Salisbury can offer better service than any volunteer fire company around?? I don't think so!! The Parsonsburg and Powellville personnel sound more calm than the paid farmin.
Then Jay Jester screams on the radio in his "Ocean City cool fire talk" "Engine 16 Officer to Engine 16 Chauffeur" Yeah, that's cool talk their Jay Jester. Then he asks for an additional 50 ft of hose. LMAO. He is a volunteer chief in Ocean City and he can't guess how much hose line he needs. What an idiot.
It's been nearly a half hour and they still haven't put that small garage fire out and they have at least 5 fire stations dispatched on that call. Pathetic, just pathetic. And they want to scare the public into thinking they are better suited to serve the public than any volunteer with the same amount of training. They are an embarrassment to the fire service.
