A pulmonary edema isn't important enough for RFD to ASSist? Nobody needs to make RFD to look bad, they do it all by themselves. If their employees don't want to hurt themselves then send a ladder truck out to calls. The ladders are built to handle more them 300lbs at much higher elevations. Is it possible that the fire dept is making themselves look bad because 1. to prevent layoffs and 2. open up the possibility of billing for certain services?

The Reno City Counsel is working hard to eliminate 35 jobs held by the Reno Fire crew. When a judge ruled against the layoffs based on contract agreements, the City Counsel sought another avenue. They are voting to not allow fire fighters to respond to medical emergencies anymore in order to justify the layoffs, no matter where you think your tax dollars are going. So, if this story makes you angry, look to your City Counsel, not the Fire Department.

This fire dept is shucking there duties to respond to calls that the taxpayers pay for. Why doesn't the city counsel get rid of management of that fire dept and start over as well as clean up the contract with the greedy union
