PHILLY TO SEND FIREFIGHTERS TO CAMDEN

Vodpod videos no longer available.

The insanity continues. Funny how Action News calls this an exclusive. Readers of FIRST IN already knew about this issue since I posted this: LINK

Let someone tell me again that blogs have no value.

This is a disastrous idea. The concept of one municipality destroying its infrastructure, then refusing to raise the revenue needed to cover essential services and expecting someone else to pay for it is … despicable. It is also dangerous for our citizens to send our scarce companies to Camden when they are desperately needed here.

Enough is enough.

    Change things minimally in that sentence (municipality=person, infrastructure/essential services=basic needs, raise revenue=earn a living).

    So you’re saying Camden wants WELFARE!!!

    Cap:
    I swear someone isn’t playing with a full deck back there…and all the rest are dealing from the BOTTOM.

    This is LUNACY of the first order!
    It’s like trashing TWO cities for the price of ONE.
    (where is the GAIN in ANY of THAT?)

    You stay safe out there.

    Capt… your guys who going to Camden. Do they know the area?

    Or well they have their faces buried the the map book all the way to the call.

    What happens when a firefighter is injured or killed in the line of duty? Who runs the investigation, Philly or Camden? Either way, this is a despicable move by Nutter.

    I’m voting for Milton Street!

  5. So they’re shutting down firehouses all over Philadelphia, and now you’re expected to go to a different state to fight fires? Talk about getting bang for your buck! Before you know it, they’ll have you picking up trash too.

    What I don’t understand is that if Camden is that desperate for fire protection, then why aren’t the neighboring towns in New Jersey stepping up to help out? Last time I looked, PFD is in a different state. I’m less than thrilled that my property taxes just went up, and I’m getting less protection. Way to go Mayor Nutter!

    New Jersey is the most densely populated state in the U.S., except for Camden- their property taxes are outrageously expensive. So where’s all the money going and why can’t they afford their 911 services? I’m sorry that Camden is such a mess, but it’s NOT our problem.
