Being one of the one million plus lawyers in these great states must have given her tremendous insight and understanding of the tasks of these firefighters.

Thank you Dina De Giorgio. I am so glad that I voted for you! In your short time in office, you have proven to our community that you represent us and can accomplish change on our behalf. Your plate is full and I think you are doing a great job. Craig, you're an idiot...Dina can and should get to know her locals and what's wrong with people getting to know her. Excuse me, but her predecessor took more than his share of photo ops. How many times did you see Mr. Pollack's picture page after page in the Port News. Find something productive to do with your snide remarks.

Main Street is still filthy dirty and the "two million dollar" turning lane is still the same configuration at the corner of Main Street and Shore Road, yes the same one that was worthy of a full page ad in the newspaper during the election that she said would be corrected if elected, Harbor deli and the Dolphin book store are still waiting, Code Violations exist up and down Port Blvd and Main Street. The Hyper local candidate is anything but, she spends her time trying to derail the establishment of a new park and preservation of open space useing the ELF funds while advocating for the creation of another one useing the same funds, now that is a hypocrite of the highest political order, do as I say not as I do is her mantra, I guess that's what happens when you take your orders from the party boss' at Westbury GOP HQ. Now does that make her worthy of the Nelson A. Rockefeller award the Republican machine just bestowed on her?

Mrs. De Giorgio went out of her way to participate in a dangerous activity so that she could better understand the needs of a great number of her constituents, firefighters and victims alike, and the needs of the largest public service organization in her district. Nothing about this was "photo op," she earned all of the credit this article gives her and more...let's take some time to focus on the positive for once.

Hey NYB- With all due respect to the department what was the "dangerous activity" about a totally controlled training environment. No harm no foul with her going but who is kidding who, she was not in danger for even one second and she would have been a fool to needlessly put herself in danger, so in your effort to kiss up we could all do without your superfluousness. Thank you.

With all due respect, what qualifies you to decide what is and isn't dangerous? Firefighters are injured on a regular basis during training, and while there are some controls and safeguards in place, the environment is physically demanding and far from completely safe. Maybe if you came out to watch the exercises or *gasp* joined the fire department, you might understand what goes on during training and how dangerous it can be. While all involved go to great lengths to assure the safety of the participants, in the end we are dealing with dangerously hot and hostile environments, real fire and the physical forces involved in moving large volumes of water under high pressure. Accidents happen and as controlled as the environment can be, it's still a place where you rely on equipment to survive. You have no idea what you are talking about.
