Wicomico County Announces Changes to Local Fire Marshal’s Office

At the Salisbury City Council meeting of October 9, 2017, new ordinances were passed that will directly affect and change the way business is conducted within the corporate limits of the City of Salisbury. As determined by the Mayor and City Council, Wicomico County will no longer be performing the fire safety functions and duties typical of the local Fire Marshal’s Office within the corporate limits of the City of Salisbury.

All business dealings for these functions will now be handled by the following Departments within the City of Salisbury government structure: Department of Infrastructure and Development (410-548-3170); Housing and Community Development Department (410-341-9550); and the Salisbury Fire Department (410-548-3120). Any questions should be directed to these City Departments.

WTF!! What a dumb mistake. The county has done this for years and did an excellent job.

This is crazy and the wrong move.

What once took 1 County department to do is now going to take 3 City departments to do?? Where is the logic?? DUMB

So because Mr. Culver and Mr. Day are completely bitter with each other, the decision was made by one or both of the parties to not share P&Z resources and do each of those themselves. So we get bigger government, duplication of the same resources, and more expenditures.

I fail to see how this is anything but a bad thing and the result of a disagreement of two leaders which the citizens will pay for far into the future.

the city residence better not have to pay for the duplicated services..... via property taxes..... jake from state farm needs to pay out of his own pocket..... jake has got to be tax and spend with no regards to persons paying the taxes... most people living in the city limits are not very wealthy.... the landlords are not going to make up the difference on a property tax increase to pay for duplicated services they are going to pass it off to their tenants.... how stupid can some one be..... REALLY!!!!!!

I agree dumb dumb dumb. This is only going to result in massive increases city property taxes.

So, wait, do any of these 3 departments have law enforcement abilities like the fire marshal does?

Seems like dumb idea done for spite without thoroughly thinking out the consequences!

I usually like the mayors ideas but not getting this one. Working for a contractor that does work all over the area the county fire inspectors are the best we deal with. Not looking forward to another layer of govt bs.

6:27 agree with you. Not looking forward to it. I'd like to see the qualifications of the so called "City Fire Marshal". I heard he's just a regular firefighter getting a promotion. This should be a fun time.

If Jake Day & this City council doesn't get out of office, our City is going to be bankrupt!

That is correct. The loser Eric Cramer with absolutely NO EXPERIENCE.

This is absolutely stupid. The county handled it just fine. This is nothing about Jake vs Bob. This is dumb Jake thinking he is going to make money off of having his own fire Marshall. Hey boss, your paw patrol wannabe fire Marshall has no where near the qualifications for that role. Furthermore, the money is not there like you think it is. Didn't the county fire Marshall prove that at a council meeting last year??? Jake, you are losing your mind and need to get out of office. Focus on the residents, not your own dreams!!!!

Oh don't worry. Eric Cramer has NONE. No experience.Took a couple of classes and now he is going to do the job he has no experience in and knows nothing about. He has created so many problems between the County Inspections Division and the fire department. He is clueless.

I know some people that work at the fire department and they say he was a half ass paramedic with no fire experience at all?? What am I missing here?

I don't know, but I'm hearing they are going to give that idiot Cramer a gun to carry.

A lot of folks that won't sign there name. I will tell you the city has had a lot of issues getting things done through the county that directly impact the city. This change will now take this roadblock away. This is not the venue to discuss these issues.

The problem has always been city staff and not county. I work for a large architectural firm in the area. We've never had issues with the county fire Marshall. They're probably the most customer oriented office of them all. The complete opposite of a roadblock. Of all of the things the city should take over the county fire Marshall isn't one. jake day has no clue what he's doing with this one.

I agree, although he is a fire inspector and not a fire marshal. Cramer at the SFD is neither.
