Ture, thanking you for telling people to F-off for being whiney, sensitive and too damn PC. The Buzz is getting a little soft.
Not that anyone cares, but I work for a Fire Dept in the 4 corners and am on the Tech Rescue Team. My personal opinion is that it is total crap to have to pay for a rescue wether you asked for it or not. However, the fire department is bound by city policy so if everyone spent as much energy making calls and writing letters to the city officials of Golden as bitching on this thread, perhaps we could effect some change in this ridiculous practice.
As a boater and member of a fire department, I can say that everyone seems to have pretty valid points. So be safe out there!
