I don't understand why people think there is no representation of the firemen on the board. There are 4 board members each with over 30 years as a Deep Gap fireman. They may be retired but they are still Deep Gap firemen at heart. To say that these men do not care about the firemen or the department is ludicrous.
They may have been firemen at one point but the fire service has changed drastically over the past thirty years..Just because they serve on the board does not mean they have any fire service experience.
