Why not? they have live in volunteers in lot's of places, lol.

But seriously guys, this is so the wrong forum for this discussion.... You're gonna start a war on here!

Not to even mention the logistical nightmare and impracticality of a completely volunteer department in a city that size.

[quote=""infernobuster""]I disagree with your comment. Why should they be ashamed ?

They probably work in a small community where there will never be a full time station ever. Thats where most two hatters end up IMO.

They town relys on their skills/experiences for the residents of that town.
I think its kinda sad guys get fired up over the "two hatter" issue.

I know this topic will bring a shit storm no doubt.[/quote]

Think again.This is coming out of Hamilton.Where there are plenty of two hatters in built up areas that should be staffed 24/7 and haven't been since the town/county amalgamation.

The OPFFA by way of IAFF has relaxed some of the rules to match the scenario yu bring up.That said why should the town be forced to rely on them.Hire some guys or whatever the POC equivalent is and pay to have them trained.My tax dollars pay to train a career FF who then goes and makes money at another dept.....call a spade a spade there are no true "volunteer" halls left!

[quote=""Profire""]Sorry brother, but that is my view, I along with many others would like to see sanctions against these individuals[/quote]
