I actually read it as Hamlet's soliloquy from Act 3, scene 1. Maybe I'm just weird.

Sounds typical, not even all that FLORIDA.

A police department in my area announced the following policy regarding drunk employees: "If an officer comes in and shows signs of consuming an alcoholic beverage or illegal drug, they are told to go home." Boston fire department employees demanded extra pay to show up sober.

At my job, showing up drunk is supposed to be a firing offense. I never tested the policy.

Ridiculous. A lot of Pinellas firefighters that I have met moonlight as tree service laborers. Care to guess how many do blow/smoke crack?

A lot. God bless Florida.

I would have gone with "Tarpon Fire Chief under investigation. Which is good, because it must be hard for him to work under there..."

Are you talking about professional firefighters or volunteers? I can't speak for volunteers but there is no farking way that "a lot" of professional firefighters are running around as crackheads.

Peter von Nostrand: I can't speak for volunteers but there is no farking way that "a lot" of professional firefighters are running around as crackheads.

Two firemen died on the job in Boston a couple years ago. Autopies found one drunk, the other on cocaine. The union fought hard against drug testing, which I take as an admission that drug use is widespread.

I hope Boston is an anomaly.

I read "Tarpon Fire Chief" and immediately set out to fashion a 'fail' tag to hang on my house since no less than four of the 'Florida'-tagged articles took place within ten miles of my home. :/

Yes, and I thought the fish reference in subby's headline was a further play on that.

I went to college with the son of the physician who died in that fire and I am good friends with the family. It's a pretty horrible time for the family. This is obviously only going to make matters worse for everyone. Hope the fire chief enjoys being unemployed.

I wonder why the incident commander (before Chief DumbAss showed up) didn't have the police intervene...

Yeah, it would look bad, but when it's MY life at stake, I don't really care about appearances.
