For a home user who gets paid to send excess power to the grid why would they buy a battery to store it instead? Where's the cost savings? And how/where are you giong to dispose of such a battery? Li-ion batteries already explode...I can only imagine what a huge battery would do. if you are an off-grid home perhaps...but there aren't many of those. And the safety hazard for industrial…

You would be able to cut back in manpower, as ALL would be cross trained. Would not need the buildings as could put them in one super station, or 2 if you like. You would have more coverage on the streets at all times, and faster response times. Would be able to reduce manpower, as would not need as many as would supplement with volunteer firemen. The fire dept, spends about 2% of it's time actually…

Your hatred for firefighters show in each of your posts. All of the stats you use are completely made up, for example you say 87% of fire calls are medical. It's closer to 60%, but you use 87%, not 85 or 90%, but 87!! I guess if your made up statistics seem specific, people will believe it?

Some Quinn, GOP jobs claims add up; others don't

GOP candidates have all blamed Quinn for the state's economic weaknesses

Gov. Pat Quinn has touted in his State of the State address and recent interviews how Illinois is bouncing back from recession under his watch.

But if the Democratic incumbent sees Illinois as a state on the rise, the Republicans seeking to oust him view it far differently - as an economic basket case.

At least one candidate, businessman Bruce Rauner, trots out his own set of economic numbers to make his case. Most depict Quinn's Illinois as particularly weak.

A closer look shows that some of the economic claims made by each hold up. But others don't.

GOP candidates have all blamed Quinn for the state's economic weaknesses. But University of Illinois economist Richard Dye says a governor doesn't have much real influence over a state's economy.
