They were FORCED to break in.

Clearly they had no choice in the matter.

I don't have a problem with this in an extreme emergency situation as long as the city fully compensates the owner for any products as well as any damage incurred.

"Mayor Bill Akers says first responders had little choice when they were soaked and needed dry clothes."

No offense, but dress for the weather. Keep spare uniforms at work in your locker.

"Mayor Akers says the situation was a learning lesson and the borough is now putting together proper protocol for situations like this."

Typical politicians who never plan for anything ahead of time.

LMAO .gov and big business don't care about us peons. I got called out by CT light and power on my birthday. To go do an emergency call. I was called by a supervisor. They were given a copy of the bill signed and all. The supervisor confirmed he called us out. I had the workers names, truck number, pole number. date and time of the call and our arrival.


Accounts refused to pay us. Why? They didn't have a work order( It was an emergency call. THEY called US ). They admitted to having full knowledge and doccumentation of everything but refused to pay. GO battle in court over a couple hundred dollars? They know most wount because it would cost more to do so.

I kind of do...

The USG makes its crazy easy and nearly free for the municipalities to prep for eventualities like this. First rule of responding to emergencies is "don't become part of the emergency."

I understand the concept of extingent need. I just think that a bunch of first responders treated this guys private property like their own personal COSTCO. Honestly, they, not the city should be paying this guy back. I'm the most pogue of pogue Reserve officers, but I keep enough stuff on hand to be of assistance, versus being "That Guy" who shows up to a SuperStorm thinking that some theater level sustainment brigade is there.

Perhaps its just my Navy upbringing, but if you think you'll need it, you better have that shit with you.

Wow, I have several bags in my patrol truck. Granted, I live in a large (4,309 square mile county), and am a SAR tech, SWAT guy, and teach land nav/map and compass, and high altitude/rough country survival. But how hard is it to carry a snivel gear bag at least?

My truck:

4 rolls of TP

Fast rescue bag (Surplus 3 day pack with gear for rock rescue ops and sustainment supplies)

Long term rescue pack (Surplus large MOLLE pack with shelter, sleeping bag, food for a week, extra dry clothes, etc)

Snowmobile fast rescue pack, with survival shelter and IFAK, extra warm clothing, Clif bars, etc.

SWAT gear.

Yeah, if I ever wreck, it'll look like a Supply Sergeant exploded.

This. During my service years, and after, I'd get chided for carrying extras, or what some though was unnecessary gear, that is until something occurred and the same folks would say, "Hey, do you have an extra ___________, I forgot/lost/left it at home/never had it in the first place?"

It got so bad that others wouldn't carry stuff because they knew I'd have it. I finally had to just say, "No".

I was going to say why do they assume it was just cops. They say first responders, and kept panning the camera to the fire station.

Regardless, this doesn't sound like it meets the extreme situation I previously posted. Having watched the video, they also took unneeded items which is completely unacceptable.

And here lies the problem with the city not compensating the store for the items taken and damages occurred to the store
Link Posted: 7/23/2013 5:37:54 PM EST
Eh, not to go against GD on this one but.. . The store owner says the matter is settled and he has no hard feelings so who are we to get pissed.? I wonder if the difference in loss vs amount re paid was because he estimated his losses a bit on the high side (given the circumstances I don't blame him). Army Navy store prices are often pretty high at least at the mom and pop ones. I could be wrong on that since I'm basing this purely on the idea that the owner didn't seem to ticked off about it.

They still messed up big time though. If bad weather leaves you raiding local business for supplies than obviously your emergency plan needs a lot of work. Maybe the survivalist types aren't so off base thinking the .gov would confiscate their stuff in an emergency. At least if you have a business dealing in that type of stuff.

YES, we lived it...


The same thing occurred down here in the days after Katrina, but in our case most of what was left had already been looted by the fine citizens that stayed even though they were told repeatedly to GTFO!
Pic to prove it, "Protect and Serve Thyself"

Of course in our case shit was out of control...need an nfl jersey after a major catastrophe, some new nikes??

But like true afrcomers we took the bull by the horns, I give you the drunk militia!

I truly hope none of us ever has to endure this type of situation ever again...

But like I say our case was extreme. Can u say Martial Law...

It's nice to be prepared but what happens when your truck and entire building go under water, or you're sent on a patrol in a vehicle with no room for all that shit because it's filled with rescue personnel and more important shit and your stuff is a goner when you get back. Notice where I'm from, we had fresh uniforms trucked to us from a base 1 hr away, 14 days after the storm hit and we aren't some local PD. Walmart gave us the go ahead to rape one of their stores and I'll always be grateful for that, I had four days worth of drawers and putting on that fresh set from wally world was wonderful. Shit happens and things never work the way you plan, they didn't go and rape a best buy, the guy got paid and he knows he made out good. God forbid a guy who stays back to save all the dumb fucks who stayed be able to get a dry pair of boots and socks to put on in between working 20 hour days in the water.

God bless you. My squadron deployed there, and the day after they hit the ground in New Orleans, the team's two entire pallets were stolen, right off the tarmac. They were then sent to Baton Rouge, with only their MOLLE packs and the gear they'd kept on them.

I am not faulting you for what you did, please see my others posts in regards to this matter. Yes, I've considered the other scenarios you've posited, and plan accordingly, to the best of my ability.
