Ron I must have missed the 2 1/2 PD fire. But I like your pressures could go a bit less on the 1 3/4, but if the guys don't complain stay with what works.

Hi Ron
Unfortunately, if the powers that be are not behind a merger, it is not likley to happen. NHRFR came about as a consolidated effort between all parties (5 towns) and lots of $$$ from the state and feds. There was an extensive study done and even though it has almost been 10 yrs, there are still growing pains
If u can't get four firehouses in the same town to agree on how to do it, you are worse off than we were. It seems here, that you are not necessarily trying to regionalize, but put the four independent companies in one town on the same page or under the same umbrella so to speak
that is not regionalization, but cooperation. I wouldn't think that would be too difficult if everyone agrees. Get some common SOP's, start training together, maybe revise response protocols. I guess the problem is no one wants to give up thier little kingdom -- abig problem in the volunteer community, esp. in monmouth county. The only reason NHRFR became a reality is $$$$. If there is no incentive there, i.e. if it will cost more $$$ to get the same product even if it is in diff firehouses, might be a tough battle
If I did not understand your sit, let me knwo and I will do my best to answer better
be safe
