  1. It's so sad that the #2 in the nation's fifth largest school district will make less than an average Clark County Fire Fighter. We need to start valuing education in Nevada or we will always high unemployment.

  2. So, we could have 5 more teachers working for what this guy makes in a year? Cool....hope he's worth it.

  3. What is sad is that firefighters make that much money when police make nowhere near that amount. Police have to clear a potentially hostile scene before the firefighters even respond (have seen this numerous times). Having been trained by the US Navy to fight aircraft fires and rescue pilots on land and sea, it is a very dangerous job, but how many of them are shot at....NONE...I personally think firefighters are overpaid and police are underpaid
