They had to take a break from playing house at the fire station.

Playing house?! What do you mean playing house? If they were playing house like the rest of Sanduskians they'd be sitting on their porch collecting welfare doing nothing. Pretty sure they've got more important things like station maintenance and squad calls so I'm calling shenanigans on the playing house.

BEHAPPY

I like your post SANDTOWN! You sure spoke the TRUTH there! funny

RNR

I seriously cannot believe you made that comment.... you ought to be ashamed. Even if the firefighters knew who you were.... they would still come save your bottom if your house was on fire. shame on you.

Blaze

You're joking...right?

So sad, I wish you and your daughter the best. I hope you can recover from this tragedy. Good luck!

Washing the trucks, grocery shopping, and cooking dinner. Real tough.

sandtown-warrior

Lets see you crawl into a smoke filled house dragging a hundred extra pounds of equipment or tell someone their loved one just died or try and resuscitate a lil girl....yeah real easy sounds like you're such an expert glad you're not one I'm relying on when I call 911

bobshumway92

Maybe in NYC or Chicago. Not around here. Nice try though.

Blaze

Bob - you are probably just mad because they turned you down on the last test. Don't hate man...somebody's gotta do the job...no?

BEHAPPY

I think you're just jealous....tired of your porch? LOL

Ithink

Don't forget watching TV, sleeping, and visiting with their 'girlfriends'. They work 9 to 11 days a month. They have a good chenk of down-time. There are certainly some good men/women on the depts, but there are also people on the dept that are sitting around waiting to collect their pensions.

sandtown-warrior

Sounds like you don't your butt from a hole in the ground. Maybe you should get your head outta your posterior and take a look around. You're just jealous I hear they're testing soon maybe you should try out.

VOTENO

So he can sit around and play checkers with you all day long?

RNR

If I am correct, firefighters also respond to rescue/emt calls. And are you a firefighter? Do you actually know what goes on in the station? I do not, therefore I do not comment on what they do..... If you do not, you should not comment either. They went to school, they save lives. Give them some respect! What happened to giving Firefighters, Police Officers, Doctors and Nurses respect? I respect them all and thank them for all they do.

Thank you

Couldn't become a RN?

As the public unions got stronger, respect went away.

YouDon'tSay

SFD responded to 387 calls just in February. I doubt they're sitting around "playing house".

VOTENO

The majority of those were most likely ems calls. Farm out ems to North Central. Huge savings!

RNR

Well I am happy to pay for union employees (as I am one myself) if it wasn't for unions...... no job in the United States would pay their employees fair wages. Unions also demand fairness and safety.

How would you like it if you were fired for the same thing someone else did.... but they kept their job because they were well liked?

How would you like working in an unsafe enviroment and your boss told you.... if you dont like it you can leave?

So you can go on an not support unions...... and you are more than welcome to take the low wage uninsured unsafe job.

Goodnight.

VOTENO

I don't even know how to respond to that nonsense!

luvblues2

I'm sure that with all the negativity you spew, many wouldn't mind if you didn't respond. I know that I'm in that group.

asweetnessabove

+1. I know I'm in that group.

asweetnessabove

No, you're nonsense. Which I'm pretty sure 9 out of 10, maybe even 10 out of 10 people would agree with that. If you can't be respectful, you don't deserve respect. You have to give it in order to receive it. Grow up.

he said she said

Someone's house caught fire and the family lost basically everything they own and you all have nothing better to do than to 'feed' an ignorant person with their stupid thoughts?!?

heart broken

thank you for this comment. I think alot of ppl need to grow up! This is or was my house. im a single mother with an 7month old baby girl and we are now homeless and all u ppl on here wanna make jokes and put the fire department down u guys need to grow up i lost everything in this fire!!! And everyone wonders y sandusky is going to hell? Its ppl like u that dont realize that our pd and fire crews do alot. sometimes they dont make the best choices but all n all they do their best. Have some consideration.

Just Another Voice

Very well said. People would rather crab, complain, and spew negativity. I have you and your child in my prayers, and I am glad you can walk away from this still alive. Fire is one of the most devastating losses of personal property and is very emotional, and I wish you the best in rebuilding your life. Ignore the idiots on here that don't know or care.

asweetnessabove

Agreed 100%.

tell it how it is

@VOTENO, jeeze are you a skeptical human. I'm EXTREMELY glad most people aren't like you, and that you're not one of the men and women my family and community rely on when in an emergency.
Sheesh.

Anyways,
what's up with all of the fires lately? I feel like I read about at least 2 a week through Erie and Huron counties, usually more. It's getting a little creepy..

No I don't so I guess I have something to look up

I see a bunch of bashing shame on anyone that wants to bash the fire department. I would hate to have a house down south where the fire departments give you an annual bill to pay, n if you dont, as long as everyone's out they will just watch your house burn down. Sorry when you were a little kid playing fireman, someone peed down your leg or something. Show some respect, cause when day ya never know when you may be looking at them in their eyes as they try to save your life or house or family. Ignorant people

asweetnessabove

My heart goes out to the mother and child that lost everything in this tragic fire.

It's a shame that there are people, one in specific, that keeps bashing the very men and women who rushed to the scene to help and do their best to extinguish the fire, in hopes of little damage. Which we all know, isn't always the case. One day, you may find yourself in a similar position, then maybe you will not be so crass. Or maybe you will be, because you, VoteNo, are a very negative down right cruel human being. How do you sleep at night with such ignorance on your shoulders?

If the fire people are so great, why didn't they save her house?
