The Five Alarm soda run at Stater Brothers and our Fullerton Firefighter heroes


 

 

Fullerton just went through a budget study session and what was evidently clear to me from it all is that the Fire department in Fullerton is run and manned by professionals, professional salary and benefit negotiators. Well the cat is out of the bag that Fullerton is headed for insolvency in a matter of a few years unless we get a handle on expenses.

These heroes are gonna stick it to all of us at tax time because the only way to keep their gravy train on the tracks is to destroy everyone else’s standard of living. Yes folks, huge tax increases are coming. The need for four fire personnel on each rig on each call is questionable. What is not questionable is the multi million dollar overtime scam the Fullerton Fire department has successfully kept rolling along.

Look before you attack me for being anti public safety, remember volunteer fire departments exist all throughout the country and if they dig their heels in deep enough and double down, like they did last week at the Council meeting, we will probably end up with one anyway.

 71 Fullerton Fire department employees are pulling in almost 19 million dollars a year out of our general fund-your tax money-all spent on the Fullerton Fire department folks.

You tell me if purchasing ten 2 liter bottles of carbonated water, laced with artificial colors, brominated vegetable oil, ester of wood rosen, high fructose corn syrup, potassium sorbate, phosphoric acid, sodium benzoate and acesulfame potassium is worth hauling around these 4 million dollar rigs, parking them in the red zone, while obstructing views, blocking the road, almost causing accidents, mentally disturbing the public and of course, worst of all, taking these units out of service for over a half hour? This is an abuse of public property, public employee compensation, time and a general hazard to the public. Most of all this is totally unnecessary.

If you condone the egregious behavior by these public servants, there is little hope for you and none for this community. We are going broke fast folks. I am sure these heroes will drink to that.
