It is a good start, someone should start a fires from Highland to Farnsworth and start over.

The buildings are not the problem in this city - nor are the citizens.

How many $100,000 firemen does it take to stand around and make sure the streets ok. Looks like at least 5

8:42 - Sure looks like the fire is out. Looks as if the firemen are discussing something about the building or the fire. Seems as though they did a damn good job considering there was a build RIGHT next to the burning one. Instead of making comments you know nothing about, made you should commend the men who busted their butts to put this fire out. Im would bet you have not worked a day in your life as hard as those guys did that day.

OOPS 8:42 i was across the street and the fire was not very big to begin with. Also since I am a fireman from North of Aurora I know what I am talking about. It was put out hours ago and my Dept. does not have a bunch of Paycheck and Pension guys like Aurora does. They are overpaid and Lazy

If we could get rid of the dysfunctional people who have run and exploited Aurora, the "old guard" that puts clowns like Weisner in office and gives contracts to Wegman, Cordogan and Mundy, then Aurora has a chance to fix the mess. Otherwise, the whole downtown could burn down and it will not make a difference.

You call yourself a fireman. I doubt that. You're just a jealous piece of shit who couldn't pass the test. You were standing across the street and never saw the back of he building where fire was rolling out the door. But hey if you think you and your department are so great I would love to see how you would handle any fire. The building wouldn't be standing and neither would the one next to it. By the time you actually got to the scene the whole build would be on fire. But even if you were to get there with the same conditions as they had when they arrived, your surround and drowned tactics would be all you know how to do. And anyone can sit there and aim a deck gun at the fire. So before you call anyone overpaid and lazy why don't you actually stand in their shoes for a day, because what you do at your dept. is not nearly the same.

Uh, 4:20, that would be the voters. Weisner was put in office by the voters who chose him, and by the voters who didn't bother to show up to vote for anyone else.

Oh, and for the record, I didn't vote for Weisner.

Finally get a little fire and you overpaid Aurora firemen act like you just put out the Chicago fire. Must not been ROLLING anywere if the front windows are still in tact. And my Dept. Doesn't have guys come to work drunk or on drugs. John Wayne (The Duke)I know all the stories because one of your guys tells us all about guys. You are an embarassment and you know it. How many guys are off on fake injuries and getting paid. You are there for your taxpayers. Quit posting you make your self look like a fool.

Anonymous said...

Well that one guy telling you all these stories is just as much a piece of shit as you are. I only wish I could show you photos of that fire where fire is rolling out the back door just to prove you ignorant ass wrong. Go back to you little department and pretend that you are an actual fireman. And take the AFD guy telling you these "stories" with you. He is not needed on AFD.

Anonymous said...

And when you take him with you maybe he can actually train the guys on your department to be real fireman.

Anonymous said...

Do you realy think that this guy is a North Aurora fireman? I am betting no, but he is a trouble maker who is smart enough to get firemen fighting with each other and then sitting back and laughing. AFD and NAFD are both good departments, don't let a nitwit start problems between you. Remember, if you roll around with dogs you catch fleas.

Anonymous said...

I doubt he is a North Aurora fireman. It just says a department north of Aurora. Probably some tiny department no one knows exists.

Anonymous said...

Aurora,I wrote North of Aurora. North Aurora is a family Dept. 350lb chief with his son inlaw, and son as management. Can you say Nepotism. They couldn't put out an outhouse unless it was next to a bar.

Anonymous said...

You obviously don't know much about North Aurora because the chief there does NOT have a son on the department. Just because they have the same name does NOT mean he is his father. But I would guess you are a wannabe fireman since you do have some of your information correct. Sounds like your department likes to talk a lot about other departments though.

AFD are a punch of pussies pure and simple. Their pay shoudl but lowered by 2/3. Even an illegal alien can be taught to pour water on a fire and who cares if they die doing it?

Anonymous said...

Are you one of those illegals? Because you cannot spell worth a shit. And that is a pretty shitty thing to say. Even if someone is illegal, it doesn't mean their lives are not worth anything. Horrible.

3:01 - Really? Judging by your post, it must be hard to type at 3 in the morning after a hard night of drinking and surfing porn. Low self esteem + sticky fingers +
unresolved issues + bad hand eye coordination = bad posts.
