A member of the Tri-Town Vol. Rescue Squad was suspended for being on drugs. Santo F was high when he was arrested for stealing a members truck and leaving it in the ditch. Do you really want care from someone who is high on drugs.

Why wouldn't it happen, captain kirk. What are you trying to say? Are you casting aspersions on our rescue squad? They are a group of fine, dedicated people who take the job seriously. You can't say the entire squad is on drugs because one person was.

Did I say that the entire squad was on drugs - NO-
I said that there will be no testing and the reason it will be costly. I am sure they will remove the drug user from the membership list

Then why did you even bring it up? He wasn't high on duty, he wasn't on duty when he got arrested and they suspended him anyway. They took the right course of action. Why so negative about the rescue squad?

They are on duty 24/7 hint the word Volunteer. The facts remain he stole a truck and was high. You can defend him all you want but the fact is he should be kicked out; and never let in another rescue squad.

Thats not true, so if you are a member as you say then you would of know that. So shut your mouth dumb ass; and stop talking out your ass. If he is not on drugs then why is he suspended?? Gail must love this.

I feel sorry for Captain Kirk. He has nothing better to do with his time than degrade other people and worst without all of the facts.I can tell you for sure that immediate and appropriate action is taken when a problem is discovered.I wonder how much time Captain Kirk spends volunteering in this comunity short of typing bad remarks of people that do? Time to get off your high horse and put you foot where your mouth is.By the way could you make sure you use Captain Kirk when calling 911?

You see I do have all the facts. Unlike you who is just blowing steam. The people have the right to know as they let these pople into their homes. I am not saying all members are bad, just Santo. And thats All I have to say about that.

I would like to know where you get your information. If I find out I will take appropriate action. I do not defend the person accused but I resent having other members dragged through your mud. Why do you ask about Gail? It is not steam I am blowing, just a resentment for a person mistating things and causing harm for good people who would go out of their way to help even you.Don't you have a better way to use this service than destroying people.

I joined Tri Town Rescue in 1990 -- through the years I had never worked with a more dedicated group and hard working. As with any organization you can have ones who make mistakes. Getting into the Squad is not an easy process and background checks are carefully done -- but with all the hoops to go through to become a member its being a member that shows who you are. Rescues take very seriously their jobs -- and to that end take the actions of their members seriously--- when its necessary there is a process to take a course of action. Even as I can't be active now I still proudly hold my membership. Just remember this can happen anywhere and it takes strong leadership to do what they have done. Responsibility to the community is not taken lightly --

Are you kidding me? The Brasher Falls squad is a FUCKING JOKE!!!!! The young inexperienced people there never show up to a call,why even be a volenteer if your not gonna show up to the calls.
And, Please! Dont tell me they ALL have day jobs
to go to that prevents them from going to any call.Ive personally hear them toned out multiple times for a call and no-one ever responds. Then Massena or Potsdam has to be toned out to go to a Brasher call.I personally know about a man in Brasher Falls who was having a Heart Attack and Brasher was toned out for 45 min. With only 1 responce 50 minutes later by June Wolf coming from Norwood.The family ended up having to have Potsdam toned out and they were there in 12 minutes. Needless to say, It will be a cold day in HELL before that family or myself depend on TRI-TOWN RESCUE SQUAD EVER AGAIN!!!! Potsdam will be their first choice and mine. I sure there is several more people out there feeling the same way.

I have been a member for a long time and can say that I have never seen any members high or intoxicated when on a call. And I can't say that on a time or two it might take awhile for a crew to respond or to get the nearest ambulance to help is untrue. The squad hired June Wood to cover the day time calls to incress responce times. I know that the members are doing the best job thay can. Tri-Town is always looking for new members if you have some free time to help.

A person who has time to bitch about others on this website ALL the time has time to volunteer. They don't because they are lazy, don't care enough, and constantly try to wind people up and sit back and watch the fight. I have seen Tri-Town in action MANY times over the years. They would be my FIRST choice out of all other squads in the county. They have some really dedicated people there. Putting June on days was a prgressive move. I hope they continue along those lines. Good job Tri-Town!

I understand the squad's position as getting high is illegal. However, if he was not on duty at the time I dont feel it should impact his job. You cant tell me that these volunteers are never allowed to take a break. I am sure that several others may have an occasional drink or two when they are not on a call. They may even get totally drunk, but that is legal so no big deal...or so it seems. I personally feel that if I have an emergency I will call on the Tri-town squad without hesitation. I feel they are a wonderful group of people who volunteer their time to help others. Noone said they were perfect because they are human just like the rest of us. When you become perfect and wish to volunteer your time to our area we would be glad to hear from you.
