I feel bad for the family that lost there house. I feel that if the city had a full time fire department like they had in the past maybe the loss would not have been so severe. I wish the city would reconsider having a full time Fire Department. I know the Mayor does not feel that in a necessity. But maybe the counsil could vote it back in. They actually make the decisions for the city not the Mayor. If the city pays one employee $7.50 and hour to stay at the fire department and be available in the time of need that would not bank rupt the City and would be benificial. The volunteer approach obviously does not work. If the city has a full time fire department the insurance rates would decrease for all buisness and home owners. Shouldn't the city be able to vote and decide if a full time fire department is needed?

the fire dept did a wonderful job and was very quick on getting there. the fire was not anyone's fault. i was very happy to see that there was alot of firefighters there and i would like to thank everyone of them for helping and doing such a wonderful job. my mom and dad and jimmy would like to thank them as well. the police dept and the fire dept and medic one, we thank you and love each one of you for your quick and wonderful response. if it wasn't for them we could have lost alot more than just the house. my parents and uncle was there and i am very thankful that they all cared enough to show up. so please do not say anything bad about any of them, they did a wonderful job and did everything they could to save the house. thank you again,
shonda and gerry and jimmy say thank you from the bottoms of the heart as well.
