Police and fire depts have become a real tax burden in both the county and city.I wonder how they determine replacement of these vehicles.looks to me i would take YEARS before one of these would need a need cab and chassis and body. I can see updates to electronics and preventive maint. But 3 new units seem overkill to me.

Yes they were purchased with tax money. The last 3 were just purchased less than 3 year ago. What a wasted of tax dollars. Diesel trucks are supposed to last 10 to 20 years easily. And you wonder why are taxes are so damn high. Salisbury raises sewer fees. You idiots keep voting these idiots in office every election.

Barb Duncan and Rick Hoppes should have been fired when Jake Day was sworn in.

Again the Salisbury Fire Department shafts the tax payers of Salisbury and Wicomico County.

I stopped donating money to my local fire company after noting that one of the higher ups who had a FD issued gas guzzling SUV drove his kids to school every day in it.That's not appropriate in my opinion.Why should the community pay for it?

.......just waiting on a positive comment............honestly why do you people live here if the City is so bad?????? Or are we just keyboard warriors who dont want to do anything? Do you go to the council meetings? 6 negative comments=6 people in a council meeting. They give you adequate time to say what you want regardless if its on topic.

That is all of the volunteer fire companies in Wicomico County and the dumb county executive and county council are afraid to do anything because they are afraid of losing votes.

They are called command vehicles and they pretend they are justified because they need to establish command at the fires. Well the last time I checked there really weren't that many fires in Wicomico County. Just because you see a fire truck going to a call doesn't mean they are going to a fire. More than likely going to a "medical assist." In other words they are ambulance chasing. Fire trucks are not needed for medical assists. If they were needed then why don't they just take the gas guzzling SUV. Oh wait they can't because one of the volunteer chiefs is taking their kids to school.

The Salisbury Fire Department has 8 of those gas guzzling chiefs vehicles and 4 of them are take home vehicles out of town limits and one is taken home every day to Delaware. Both county and city tax dollars are paying for the gas and insurance on these. If you live in the county you are still paying for this luxury to the Salisbury Fire Department.

The County Executive and the County Council is allowing this to happen because they are afraid of losing votes. Well if this is the case then isn't this buying votes at the tax payers expense.

I am glad to see that SFD Emergency Units are being kept current. Those vehicles take a beating, hope they serve the F/F EMT and Medics well. And I pray for the safety of all our First Responders and hope I never need their services!

Go to any busy city in Maryland across the bridge and view the equipment. They run in and out of ER's constantly with plain work trucks. No chrome or alloy rims, plain steel wheels. They must not have time to even wash them, due to the sight of them. Just getting the work done, without parade vehicles.
