Over 7 months passed already this year and the sum total of MILLIONS of dollars has resulted in nothing but salary/welfare payments to the HFD. ONE car tire was put out by the Kearny FD with only the assist of the Harrison FD. When are the people going to put this patronage/nepotism mill out of business for good and use the money elsewhere. In my opinion, since 1995 McDonough and the revolving puppet regime have taken the town to the lowest point in history. The towns bond are rated JUNK bonds so there will be no takers. The only way to continue to pay the 30 over $100,000.00 ff clubhouse loafers IS going to result in another round of dramatic property tax increases. This goes the same as to support lavish life styles to not only the dormant HFD but also other probably 100 high paying non-posted welfare "jobs" for friends and family. A change in the lack of intelligent leadership must be dealt with NOW. The most highly salaried employees (just titles without actual productivity) to out of towners is not needed. Wake up folks!!

By Tire Fire i'm guessing you mean the truck that blew up in the scrap yard and if left burning would have set the house on fire that it was threatening. And HFD put that whole fire out themselves, East Newark assisted slightly with overhaul and KFD stood by.

I guess we should forget the Pechters fire.

Lets also forget the Chemical Company Fire on South 2nd?

And last but not least lets forget the Hamilton St. Fire. Which had almost 2 full floors fully involved and a very aggresive interior attack by HFD, ENFD and KFD kept that fire at bay. An East Newark Firefighter even saved a cat in that one. Yeah but no one needs FD's. Scrap em all let towns burn!

You're right they all don't count.
