Is my district alone in this? In my vol. fire dept halloween night is our busiest night we will have 4 trucks fully staffed for the day before, during and after halloween. The punks in our area cut trees in the road burn tires and other junk. Then egg the truck and us when we respond. They will go as far as to make false ems calls to get us out. Last year they burned 3 houses and a store all were empty and the year before they burned a train yes a train.

They have started early this year 1 couch in the road and 2 small brush fires set in the road. We have decided that they are starting early this year because of the problems the dept. has had with our chief and asst. chief. But thanks to all your ideas me and the acting chief are having a meeting with the county mayor about the situation county wide.

someone just needs to knock some since into them
I'm with you. Knocking sense into them takes little time, making sense of them takes longer and making them sensible takes the longest time. The latter along with the formers will have the best effect. TCSS
Fish and Game could make a season for that, let's say Oct 31st, and make money from it. Hopefully enough for a new fire truck. TCSS
I'd buy a hunting license for that.
Its the 28th and we have had 1 fire a night since saturday. Just small tire fires in the road around 2 am I'll updaye this the day after halloween with the total number of fires
