Yet another TOY to be driven around the county to every local parade, watch for it at your local parade!! for the FEW times its really needed the****thing will be out of service. There are things that the POLICE & FIRE services need to do the job, but this is not the case, for example look at Catt Co. they have a converted new RV TRAVEL TRAILER ! yes a trailer!!our county could have gotten the same thing ! last time i knew the Fire cordinator drove a big 4x4 & the sheriff's dept has a few trucks. lets not for get the BIG hazmat truck, that Toy could even pull a trailer. when I was in the local FD, a few years ago. the hazmat truck was a cube van & the sheriff had an old bread truck as a command unit, and a little helicopter on floats, If you needed a medivac you called Mercy flight. soon this county will just have TOYS and WELFARE,nice welfare housing on 2nd st in Jamestown!!

What a waste. Just another toy for Gerace to massage his ego. Everyone can see this. Watch how he asks for more money next budget now... to maintain this monster. What is next a drone? Apache Attack copter? Jumbo jet command base? Spy Satallite?

Let see if I can get this right... 400,000 tax dollars was just spent on an RV with radios? You idiots better put a snowplow on the front of that thing. The flippin' roads are more of a danger to me than anything else. Rabid hillbillies, crackheads, mentally insane, geriatric drivers, fires, criminals, and slumlords all have a seat please. Winter is here!

"Security grants in the amount of $400,000. No local taxpayer money was used in the purchase." That is right folks! Your federal income TAX magically becomes federal dollars or grant money" LOL

They'll be commanding major incidents not only in our area but where ever that truck is needed. They didn't get it to just spend taxpayer money. They got it to have to use for major incidents like stated in the article, different major fires, serious weather, where ever there are a lot of emergency crews at work.

This will be a great piece of equipment for all emergencies, not only in our area, but anywhere it is needed. It doesn't matter how the financing is secured, all that matters now is we have it to use and it will be beneficial peice of apparatus that we can call for whenever we need it. It's here now so just deal with it.

Folks, "wake up" and give yourself a reality check. You are never going to control federal spending. Again, YOU ARE NEVER GOING TO CONTROL FEDERAL SPENDING. So enjoy the fact that we get to see federal spending, no matter what it is, in our area. This is a needed piece of equipment, so congrats for obtaining it.

I would never deny first responders the equipment they need to do their job, but... I would have much preferred to do away with the County Home, cut our social services a bit or done some other method of creative financing to pay for it. Since 47% of every dollar the government spends is borrowed from sources like China and Russia, among others,I really question the financing. That said, I hope it works well for the job it is made to do and hope to see it put to good use. It is another tool to make the job of our paid and volunteer responders a little easier and safer.
