TKC BREAKING AND EXCLUSIVE NEWS!!! KANSAS CITY FIRE DEPARTMENT CHAOS AMID MULTIMILLION DOLLAR SETTLEMENT AND CONTINUED EMT CONFLICT!!!



The fight over Kansas City Ambulance Service continues despite repeated assurances that the KCFD has solved all of their lingering problems and will one (fine) day get the response times back in order without changing the rules too much.

To wit . . .

RIGHT NOW WE HAVE KICK-ASS TKC TIPSTER INSIGHT ON TROUBLE BREWING WITHIN THE KCFD AMID AN UPCOMING MULTIMILLION DOLLAR OVERTIME LAWSUIT SETTLEMENT WITH EMTS!!!

City Hall wants to get this thing off the books for about $2 Million but continued KCFD behind the scenes INFIGHTING doesn't speak well of any attempt at compromise.

Here's the word regarding recent worker decisions that have sparked rage . . .

"Here's some info on what's been going on behind the scenes. The Chief attempted to retaliate against all the EMS workers by forcing them onto a horrible new work schedule without warning and without giving a crap about what Local 42 thought. He knowingly violated the workers contract and a Federal Mediator had to be brought in. The workforce is in chaos because The Chief has done nothing to prepare for this. Word is they want him gone. He has proven to be incapable of running EMS."

Add these problems to recent station shutdowns, tax campaign season and a tense relationship with Mayor Sly and once again we're reminded how local government and politics are ruining yet another important Kansas City institution.

UPDATE: HERE'S THE RESPONSE FROM LOCAL 42!!!

Tension sure. Can't believe The Star didn't endorse their tax but endorsed the train. That is local politics at its worst.

Better get a bulk mailer ready showing EMT services not reaching grandma in time, maybe add a flatlining EKG to the front side... and the local cornfed rubes will run to the polls to fork over more of their shrinking paychecks.

Why not just strike like they did in the 80s. They can set fires and sabbotage the trucks so the cops can't operate them.

Yes the great Charlie Wheeler that so many thinks is so great got us into that mess.

They are working to find a new deployment model that meets the demand, this is old news and the Firefighters and paramedics got ahead of it. I guess city hall could still screw it up and that's why the medics are nervous.

You'd think those fuckers were trying to run NASA over there or something as complicated as they make things.

Amen 12:22 and 12:29. The FD won't even follow their own strategic plan for equipment replacement. Sly's Super Duper pumper at 19's to take the place of 32; BS. No accounting of the Public Safety Tax. It's like giving them an unlimited expense account and they manage to overspend it. Lawsuits and overtime. The FD has made more of a mess of MAST than they did at JJ's. Their motto should be "This rubble brought to you by KCFD & Local 42".

There was another one in 1980. It was probably your daddy in that one.

What is the matter with you people? How can you expect Kansas City to be like Detroit if we have a functioning fire department?

1:23 I see what your feeling are about certain people who comment in this blog but WHAT IS YOUR POSITION ON UNSOLICTED BULK EMAIL??!??! Toy Trains and politicians come and go but UNSOLICTED BULK EMAIL IS HERE FOR FUCKING FOREVER AND NOBODY CARES!

How about ambulance response times? Oh that's right, the FD hasn't met response times since they took over. 51 consecutive months of failure.

2:05 are you ever stupid the strike in the 70's was 100 times worse than that work slow down you fucking clowns pulled in the 80's

This fucking town and the fire dept have fought each other for years. Least they both feel the other is a huge pile of shit and there is a whole lot of truth in that. That fucker Wright should be in jail. The crews that left JJ's should be charged as well.

Worst decision ever on this train nonsense. Can't believe KC has been destroying everything that we need to run our city. Shame on you council!

If I as a repair man had handled the gas leak like KCFD did I would be out of business. Fucking Mayor needs to hang with them. Where are you rope and tree man.

The firemen need to go on strike and EMS needs to be left alone to do their necessary and thankless underpaid job. The fire dept. on strike would be such an opportunity for everyone to clean up their areas - nothing like a cleansing fire to spruce up the city. All the angst and foot dragging about cutting brush and tearing down abandoned houses could all be gone in a week. And a great opportunity for folks upside down in their house to get a nice insurance payout. It could be such a win for the average citizen those bully fools will never do it.

This is a union that's gotten far too big for their britches. Seems to be an occupational hazard.

" KICK ASS TKC TIPSTER " = Marissa... Noone is that stupid Tony. She preaches to all her Union brothers and sisters about togetherness, when really it's all about her. She was shit canned feom MAST 2x , and then got fired from KCFD... Vindictive, vendetta?? All words to describer her. But, at least the Union is still paying her salary why she finds another stupid reason to sue the department and the city.
Give it a rest BITCH.... Move on, screw a few more fireman, get left in a dumpster, and take your boy-toy Cambiano with you. I guess she figured gettin banged out by a few FF's wasn't good enough, so she blew the Union president... Yeah, real credible source

Damn. You inbred faggot firefighters are so stupid. You don't think these MAST people talk to everyone about how much they hate you? We just hope more of you are dumb enough to try and fight an officer on duty. Now go back to your xbox.

I don't think he's her type, if ya know what I mean.

Well this is a prime example of what happens when certain kinds of people are elected to run a shit hole like KCMO. Political corruption at its best. Time to call the FBI.

Sooo many problems will dissolve once the MAST old timers & old FD folks go away.

The FBI knows all about it and doesn't give a shit. If they did, they would be looking at former union leaders bank accounts, even off shore accounts. They would be looking at all of the former city council and mayors accounts and then, they would be keeping an eye out for a large money exchange between AMR and former and current union leaders and city officials. why did they break something that was working?
