Two reports were released last month with conflicting suggestions for the Albuquerque Fire Department.

One, commissioned by the local union, suggests AFD needs more staff and more gear to meet calls within nationally recommended response times.

The second, commissioned by the mayor, looks at cost-cutting measures at AFD, such has trimming down personnel sent to emergencies and structure fires.

Read all about it in Carolyn Carlson’s article.

Donate your old cell phones to overseas troops

In the past, I've had a few friends who made fighting with their boyfriends an art form.  I'm talking about the kind of fighting where they would scream and yell, throw themselves out of slowly-moving cars, destroy their boyfriends' cell phones and go storming off into the darkness.  I'm sure you know the type.  If you're not one of these soap opera stars of life, chances are you have at least one cell phone sitting in a drawer somewhere that you've retired for the newer, sleeker model. You know you'll never use it again (or break it). There are many people overseas serving our country that could take that tiny machine and put it to good use. Please do a stranger a favor.  You can donate your phones to any AFD fire station or APD substation. Delete all of the content on your cell phone prior to donating by going to this site. For the full 411, check out Cellphonesforsoldiers.com. If you're the type of person that hangs on to stuff just in case, keep in mind you can still go for lamps and dishes if you really need to destroy something to get your point across.
