Can I ask when will there be a story on the discussions regarding mutual aid concerns raised by the Isle of Capri Fire Chief. You know his concern that Marco Island's Fire Chief insists, through policy that all calls require a mutual aid response from the Isle of Capri to the City of Marco Island.
Eagle Staff: Please advise your editor to do his job. This is the second firefighter related story from this newspaper and still not one article on mutual aid.
Do I need to go to Marco Island Sun Times for the news that is fit to print as well as report?
Time to punch in and write the stories that influence our lives on this island. Mr Murphy is always claiming our safety is his utmost concern. It should be the Eagles as well and to keep us informed
Mr. Murphy's policy of mutual aid is what I would call wasteful and place undue burden on the Isle of Capri as the responding unit.
And this with Marco Island having a fully staffed department in the off-season.
This is a rare city in which we have full time staffing that remains unchanged from peak season to off-season. That my friends is blatant waste. To Mr. Murphy, the off-season is spent training.
To the firefighters in the brush as detailed in this article, they can start fires and use mutual aid effectively. Now that is what I call a community with a professional firefighting crew.
God help us all at least on Marco Island!
