Dear Mr Conley


Dear Mr Conley.
                        I read with great amusement your letter to the daily times complaining about being woken by fire sirens sounding near your home in the early morning hours. 

I want you to ponder some things when you read this. Ok you obviously dislike fire sirens so I have to ask why in the hell did you buy a home located near a fire station then????

You said and I quote "The ongoing, ridiculous display by this organization exists solely for the purpose of satisfying some egotistical need to justify their own existence."

So you think firefighters get joy having to leave their families at these ungodly hours to put their lives on the line to save idiots like you from fires is just to make them feel important. Dude you got some issues

Fire Sirens are a vital alert tool to the communities around them and I suggest you put your house on the market and move to the middle of nowhere so your sensitivity to sound isn't tested.


I want to also add what in the hell is wrong with the daily times even publishing an opinion so outrageous it isn't even logical. I get many ignorant things like this and I hit delete, it is pretty pathetic that they felt the need to irritate a community and firefighters in general giving this moron an outlet to say such
Dumb shit

I will say, if they didn't enjoy leaving their families at ungodly hours, they would never have joined!

Actually the sirens are very important. Not only do they alert local firefighters to respond when they may not hear pagers they are also vital to alert citizens during civil disturbances and disasters such as tornadoes. If you hear the short wavering tones it is a call for responders. If you hear a long steady tone that is to alert citizens of impending disaster to turn on their tv or radio.

I am personally glad for the sirens....its the only way we know something is happening in our community.....if JT doesn't report on it you can't find out anything in the Daily Times!!!!

Also, the sirens are for our safety as well. When the siren sounds it tells people in the immediate area that fire trucks will be moving and to act accordingly.

I live next to a feed mill that runs 24x7 and extra loudly many early morning hours when big deliveries come in. Tons of people live near railroad tracks or airports. Have you ever been to Manhattan, the street noise goes on all night long.

This guy just moved here from Florida according to a Facebook post, so it's not like he live here 30 years then all a sudden that pop a firehouse in next too him.

The siren only goes off for house fires, bad accidents, or when they can't find a driver for the ambulance. In Delmar they have paid paramedics, so rarely is it used for medical calls. If the siren goes off, something bad is happening.

A firefighter can easily sleep through a text message. Not all firefighters have pagers. Also as has been said, the siren is also a warning to people driving in the area that firefighters might come flying up a side street to get to the firehouse, or a firetruck might be leaving.

Bottom Line, GROW UP! My God, I'd probably sleep right through it, and if I didn't you can guarantee at 4am, I'm going to fall right back asleep and probably forget about it anyway. I probably need to pee by that time anyway!

Did you notice that the railroad ran through town before buying the house? Oh wait! Write a letter to Conrail to let them know not to blow the train whistle too! Or just not at night, anyway.

There is ZERO need for those damn sirens in 2015, my god what are we in WWI WWII opps keep it there Obama is about to start WWIII

I don't know, a bunch of small town fire departments still have sirens! Most of those departments are also self-sufficient by the way. Should you like to contribute to their radio/pager/cell phone fund, I'm sure they won't turn your money down!

How often is it getting off between those hours? Once a week? Some people just need to bitch about something. Hate to live with someone like this.

In 2015, technology has replaced the need for sirens. Some people have a hard time with change but in reality the sirens haven't been needed in years. Does it really makes any sense to wake up an entire town just because you need a handful of people? A lot of fireman live to far away from the sirens to hear them anyway. I no many fireman that could not possible hear the siren from their home but they make almost 100% of the calls. Think about it please, every story has tow sides.

Anonymous doing all the complaining. So you moved from Florida, I guarantee that yuo are the writer of the article, why don't you take your "Come Here" self and go right back! People like you are the problem. Always wanting to change where you move to, to be like where you came from!

Stand under one. AAsshole
We dont need ff or firetrucks in every town its a fucking waste and a BUNCH OF REDNECKS driving there big pussy trucks

Anonymous said...

Whomever the person is from Florida complaining about the sirens, you just need to move BACK there! This is the Eastern Shore not a big city or town where you come from. I guarantee that if it was your house on fire you would change your tune. If you don't like Eastern Shore find somewhere else to live!!!!!!

I used to live on Delaware Ave right behind the Delmar firehouse never bothered me slept right through them..You will appreciate them when you have a fire or medical emergency.. These guys sacrifice their time to serve us...get off your high horse they were there before you were...

9:34 - Normally I wouldn't take the time to comment on this issue but due to your stupidity I am willing to make an exception. First of all, I do live in a small town and also near a siren tower. Rarely has it ever disturbed my sleep and on those ocassions that it has awakened me the only thought that has crossed my mind is to snuggle up to my husband and thank God that he and I are safe. Did you try to join your local fire dept and were rejected? Your usage of the abbreviation ff makes me think you're somewhat familiar with the lingo. Your argument about siren noise has taken a sudden shift and now you're targeting Fire Fighters, Fire Trucks, and even Rednecks.
What is the purpose of you asking, or whatever it is you're getting at (I can't tell because your grammar is so poor), to stand under a siren tower? Do you stand under them frequently? Is your mattress on the sidewalk under one?
And I've never been the type of person to say things like this but...it would be a shame if your house caught on fire and no sirens went off and no ff, or firetrucks, or BUNCH OF REDNECKS in their ( not there ) big pussy trucks came to your aid.

For all of you who think that this is an ego trip for some firefighter, I have only two requests. When your house is on fire or your vehicle or maybe a bus or school that your child may be in, don't call them - try saving them yourself. It's not much fun getting up and fighting fires for hours and then going to work, but we do it as a service. Second, VOLUNTEER to become a fireman in your area and ask for no pagers.

Its not 1918 its 2015 .you old fart.

Ohhhh please nobofy is bashing FF but once again a FF makes it about them and the poooor me attitude , its about a Siren system that is NOT needed anymore and is FN annoying at 4 am when the FfF have pagers PS if it wasn't for EMS CALLS 9/10 firehouses would be closed so the next time you see a paramedic THANK HER/HIM.

Volunteers need to stay at work,if you left my business for a fire i would fire you, play FF on your own time.

Brooke said...

8:35 - Yes, there was firefighter bashing in earlier comments. Please refer to the earlier reply at 9:43 to the comment originally posted on December 1 at 5:58 PM. Unfortunately it is difficult to determine if you are that person due to so many of those commenting hiding behind "anonymous". At any rate, I do appreciate paramedics and their services but if I'm trapped in a burning building I'd prefer to first see a firetruck and the equipment needed to get me to the paramedics.
It is unfortunate that when you hear a siren the only thought that crosses your mind is your loss of beauty sleep. Siren towers indicate someone in your community is in trouble. My God, look around is it your next door neighbor, could you be of assistance? I'm sure that you do not care though. But you can rest assured that when you're in need the good people of your community will not be fussing over their lack of rest. I hope your selfishness is not lurking in my community or neighborhood.

Anonn "Brooke" lol, please due to technology there are barley any fires, i can train a monkey to hold a hose and tell people to get out of a fire i bet your a obese vol? Who gets off running around in your red neck bf loud pu truck whoop whoop the eastern shore is full of ignorant rednecks whotthinks there shit doesn't stink, i believe. All FF and volllys should have to be a certain weight and height bc frankly you can run to a call and think you're cool but when a real FIRE call happens my bet is your fat ass becomes a PT.

I have read all of the replies and I am a little confused. I shall only ask one question. When you dial 911 do you want help or not? I could care less who you are ,you need help,so don't bash those of us that what to make a difference.
