Since there is now only one fire engine in the southern part of West Covina (the ladder truck now at station 4 does NOT have a water tank) I cannot help but wonder how much quicker this fire might have been controlled if our city council had not moth-balled Engine 4 on July 1st. The "Fantastic 5" has given away hundreds of millions of dollars in sales-tax revenue over the last 25-30 years to pet projects, then reduced the size of our fire department while complaining that "sales tax revenues have dropped."

If the any of the 5 of you were managing a business in this manner you'd all be out of jobs, as I hope every one of you will be through the election process.

I was listening to the PD, WCFD, and LA county fire on the radio/scanner.
I do know- that there was a hysterical woman whom apparently was hard to deal with.

Has Joel Gelfand even hd a job the last 15 years? Joel you are in your late forty's what do you do besides telling kids not to run at your kids school a vol. school monitor. 25-30 years 4 of the five were still in High School infact Roger was in per-school. You remember 25-30 years ago because that's the last you had a job!! Keep trying to play a firefighter or ambulance worker, what's the orange light for on top of your truck to let everyone know a nuts coming. Grow a pair or borrow your wife's.

This ignorant person has ZERO idea what they are talking about....they just seem to want to use this article to throw 5th grade-level insults. Sorry, but if you "had a pair" you'd publish your real name rather than hide behind the fake one you've posted. You have no credibility. so keep those insults coming. No one cares. Stick to the topic, identify yourself or just keep booooring everyone.

Yeah I have seen that Joel guy with the stupid looking yellow emergency light on his truck, we always laugh at it! Seems he's some kind of Authority waanbe, like a Cop or Fireman, but basically just a big bag of foul wind! He sure likes to comment on EVERYTHING though as though he really knows anything, I saw BALONEY! Heard he just sucks off society, lie a welfare case oh well, Knowall's are a dime a dozen!

Yes know I know who that creep is he's the one that use to be an adult "hall monitor" at my kids school. All the jerk ever did was yell at the kids and make them hate stupid adults, hope he is OFF the job now a real wack-ado!
