  •  I would amend that a bit (8+ / 0-)

    To change that to the local fire department must undergo regular training on dealing with hazardous materials stored locally, and each member must be annually certified by the appropriate federal agency.

    That doesn't preclude it being a volunteer fire dept. not all communities served by them are small.

    Delaware has one paid fire dept, in Wilmington. The rest are volunteers, with some paid staff. They are all required to be trained, and the state fire school is one of the best on the area.

    •  The paid/full time (2+ / 0-)

      is to be sure of 24/7 coverage, and short response times.  You don't have to wait for someone to drive over from their field if they are sitting in the station.

      This planet needs a lot more kids who think taking a lawnmower apart is more fun than playing a videogame.
