Welcome Amherst Fire Department


The greatest thing about the Internet is you can still feel close to home. Got an email an hour ago requesting a link on my blog to the AFD Local 1764 web site. Happy to oblige--and sorry for not thinking about it sooner.

Interestingly the person reported that they had a hotlink on the official town website, but it disappeared a while back. Hmmm....

Probably about the time the Firefighter Union had problems with the way the Town Mangler was portraying ambulance service costs in his "negotiations" with Hadley. Where, like his "Strategic Agreement" with Umass, he was taken to the cleaners.

Kind of ironic that a town supposedly into 'Free Speech' is pretty quick to squelch it when they don't like the message.

Am I reading this as the AFD might be on the same side of some issues as the um students are????

Like in Iran, things are breaking to the bottom and toward reality...

And of course "reality" is to Amherst what Kryptonite is to Superman.
