Yeah, I’m glad they’re staying. If I had property or a business down there, I’d want them to help prevent the heartless looting that went on after Katrina. God protect ‘em all!

Of course they are not immune. Still, even in an evacuation, there has to be someone to maintain civil order. They have the choice of very safest places to bunker during the actual storm. They are then available in the dangerous aftermath (Did you know many deaths occur after the storm itself is gone?).

Why are you opposed to them staying?

I’m not in any way opposed its’ just the media that makes me question the mortality of one and and immortality of others the way they potray the whole event.

Living in Lafayette, Louisiana and being a firefighter/EMT I must say we are not immune. It is our job to put our lives on the line for the benefit of our community. I will be out there in a few hours fighting fires and rescuing those who did not leave. Wish us luck we will need it.

End result of my day for my truck was 4 died 13 saved. All 4 lost in one call. Tree fell in on a house starting a fire. We tried to cut into through the fire but we could not do it in time. On one call we got trapped but cut our way out and had a save.
