montenido As a Fireman, I am constantly reminding people that when they call 911 on a non-emergency call, those fire engines and rescue ambulances are unavailable to those who actually need them. Glad they caught those numbskulls.

sailingdog What would be fitting is dropping those two idiots out on a basic wooden float that was on fire... with no VHF or any other safety equipment... about four or five miles out...and see how they like it.

Joesaila "Why would someone do that?" Imbibed adults are still the biggest offenders re pulling fire alarm boxes. Would love to see big $$ penalties there too. These two got what they deserved, though its a hard lesson in life. Sadly it will likely affect any future career or employment desires.

sailaway21 The fine is appropriately large enough to get the attention of the general public and boating community while not being so onerous as to be patently dismissable. This is known as being made an example of, and it can only be hoped that the deterrent effect will be long-lasting.

Because the pranksters don't think beyond their next beer. And if the Fines are big enough they won't have a "Beer Kitty". And with their pictures posted in the media, their dating opprotunities will drop down to Nil...
No Girls, No Beer... No money for rent means no place to live and have to move back in with the parents. Too Baddd!!

fullkeel7 Really, it's about time...if only other judges would dispense similar serious consequences(reaching DEEP into the offenders pockets), it most definitely should deter others from committing the same totally unnecessary offense.
This is going to seriously cut into their 'beer kitty'. Too dam_ bad!
