On Saturday morning the SPD got a call that a barge broke loose from Chesapeake Ship Builders. The Salisbury Police Department immediately called the Salisbury Fire Department for help, since they do in fact have a Fire Boat.
One would think the SFD would jump right in and help rescue the barge but their response was, IT'S NOT OUR PROBLEM.
Chesapeake Ship Builders was able to retrieve the barge and tied it back up before the COAST GUARD arrived but isn't it just amazing the lack of concern and or support from the Salisbury Fire Department?
The Salisbury Police Department had Officers monitoring the situation until the barge was finally secured.
Interesting how Boy Mayor Jake Day can gather a group of paid Firefighters to show up for all his photo op situations but when it comes to real safety situations, it's not their problem. It's probably because he hasn't created legislation in which they can charge Chesapeake Ship Builders for the use of the million dollar Fire Boat yet.
