Does anyone realize what would happen to the county if we did not have Volunteer Firefighters? and Fire Departments? Are the Commissioners & City Council members going to fight fires for free? Are people expected to just sit by & watch their property burn because our commissioners & council members don't have a clue what it takes to fight fires & save lives when a fire goes out of control or an accident causes serious injury? The display of fire trucks was not a "waste of money they did not have", it was a statement demanding some help. If money is taken away that they can use, what is wrong with this picture? Why was the $10,000 taken from the fire departments? Would this not have helped with repairs & much needed equipment? Where was this money placed?
