Why are members of the department using fire trucks to do their personal business?

I would like to know the answer to that question myself. I have noticed the same things you have. Up and down the road. Using our donations for gas money no doubt.

I saw that earlier this week, I think that I will have to give the FD Chief a call and see what the excuse is?

i really do not see the importance of this issue. Maybe they do use them for personal business, but don't they still put out the fires? If you don't think your donations are being put to good use, don't donate. Plus, you cannot be sure as to what was really going on, maybe they had a ligit. reason. It sounds to me like calling the chief would just start drama and who really needs that unless your just looking for an argument.

BETTER BE GLAD SOMEONE IS IN THEM TRUCKS. VOLUNTEERS DONT COME EASY. WHAT IF YOU CALLED AND NO ONE CAME. THEY PLAY BINGO EVERY SATURDAY NIGHT TO HAVE ENOUGH MONEY TO OPERATE. BE GLAD YOU HAVE THE NICE TRUCKS AND VOLUNTEERS TO DRIVE THEM. YOU SHOULD SLEEP BETTER AT NIGHT KNOWING THAT A VERY SMALL TOWN HAS SUCH A NICE FIRE DEPT. RAYMOND DOES A GREAT JOB. KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK FELLOWS.

You don't have to yell. For future reference typing in all capitals means you are yelling. And on the internet it is considered rude.

Earnestine they had every right to yell, the first 3 posters on this thread and just trying to start trouble and show just how stupid they are. If our taxes were raised enough to were we had PAID positions in the fire department we could then grip its out tax money. I play bingo and try my best to support them, I know how hard they work with NO PAY!!!

If we had paid positions in the fire department then we would have more decent, intelligent people in it.

Cleve fire fighters get paid to much . Why should a fire truck go out on a medical call, its a wast of money. They collect a paycheck to hang out and socialize. A hose is on fire, two guys are hanging out buy the hole they cut in the roof, calling down to Step & Fetch-it in the back yard. theres 5 trucks, guys are hanging out B. S.-N . I could have did a better job with a garden hose. They dount risk there lives, they let the insurance co. fix whatevers left. On there smart phone face booking, punting off there groupy chick to each other. They take off time on workers comp and put additions on there houses. Its a mens club.
Working the system, getting back dated dockters excuses, getting paid for days they take off.
do you know any fire fighters, how many rental houses do they have ?

You nosy hillbillies have no reason to be complaining about other people, particularly firefighters and other people who volunteer their time to better the community. Get a life already!

To all of the people that think we get paid, we don't. We take time out of lives to keep your asses safe. We stand in freezing weather, deal with assholes, we put our life on the line to make sure the community is safe. So before you people run your mouth about stuff being used as personal use, get your facts straight and learn what we go through. The chief doesnt let people use the vehicles for personal use. If a fire truck leaves the building, it has to be signed out and paperwork has to filed. Gas mileage is totaled and we have a very successful fire department. So again to everyone who has problems with our department, the good lord will deal with you and maybe before you run your mouth, you should go through what we do
