5. "shouldn't be" but IS necessary

I hope it DOES become a trend. A highly publicixed trend which hopefully shames the Mayor and the budget deciders into funding the critical services like Firefighters.
I hope there are HUGE headlines and groups of supporters for the firemen ever single day.

Shoulda-woulda-coulda is not reality.

THIS, from further down in the article:

Plieth said the next step is to address the lack of working equipment in the fire stations.

“We don’t even have apparatus to replace the apparatus that’s broken down,” Plieth said. “Those are things we deal with on a daily basis.”

I have worked in jobs where critical tools were not available, it drains all your energy to address the problems on a daily basis while still trying to accomplish the work that needs to be done.Adds enormously to burnout, and to loss of employees.
