What ever happened to the chief that power drove that kid? Cant believe that got swept under the Topix rug. I was there, it was professional wrestler style.

Maybe that should be a fundraiser idea. Chief wrestling.

30 days and he is still the Chief?

That's not enough!

Probably why the village has taken more control of department affairs. Rightfully so

Personally I would have stepped down.

You make a mistake, you should own up to it.

How can anyone respect him as a chief now?

You have to have morals and ethics. From what I was told, He didn't even care enought to show up to that months meeting.

Respect is a funny thing, you have to give it to get it.

There are factions within that department that control everything and almost everyone. They make it clear to the opposition they will not win because the drill team members are the controlling body. The drill team is controlled by one body, he makes sure entire department knows it.

Small town BS.

That's sad. And really too bad. There are a lot of hard working dedicated people in that department, the few that spoil it for everyone else need to go.

The Chief should go Pro! You should have seen him body slam that kid!

And really what does a community think is going to happen when you put young guys in the beer tent? I grew up with that group. They are known to party and just because a few are 21 doesnt mean their friends all are.

I cant believe that dept doesn't piss test! Now thats funny. Lets play a game. How many would be left? I can list 4 that I know would be gone!

No wonder our town thinks so little of that dept. My parents said that good guys are quitting and they hope to hell we never have a fire!

It doesent matter who quits or if they are a good person or whatever. Volunteer firefighters will always respond no matter what..... and for you hoping there is no fire..... go to a call at 2 or 3 am in a foot of snow cold as hell. Those are the good guys.

I think unless you are willing to get off your ass and VOLUNTEER you have no room to complain. And it is no ones business what volunteers do in their spare time it is their private time. If they were a paid fire department and on duty getting a salary different story. Just because people have a hard on for a family in department they should be judged on fires they run to and events worked like the others in department.

Think if you to deal with the "family" (your words) day in and day out, month after month, year after year, you'd have a different opinion. I didn't see anyone bringing family into the conversation till you did. Maybe your family??

Why are we on this topic once again? Everyone in this town must be extremely bored to be sticking their noses in everyone else's business. I would never want to live in this town nor visit it.All you do is run down their volunteer fire department and nit pick each other. Come on people get some class if you have a problem with them confront them face to face not through social media. This all has become a bunch of bullshit... the fire department has a meeting every month. Instead of sitting on your computers and trash talking and running your community down make your voice heard at meeting.

Maybe, just maybe these aren't department members. Maybe we are outside observers that are watching a train wreck in slow motion. We need cheap entertainment and this as good as a Hollywood Movie.

Then maybe, just maybe people from the family should refrain from posting things such as telling a member of the community that he hopes her house catches fire because he and the other "first responders" would just not respond simply because he didn't like something she had to say on Topix.

This jerk is so smart he even signed his own name!

The family has a target in their asses because they treat people like shit, act like little children when they do not get their own way, band together to make sure votes go their way - rather it is good for the dept or not.

Oh and great job running those events as you said above. You had an underage kid drunk and a chief beat him up. Yup that's definitely something to be proud of!!

And let's not forget that boy ha been at the field day for hours before the fight. That leads me and well everyone to believe he was served AT the event!

Let me guess, no one mentioned one certain family but someone jumps in and defends the "family" that has been the group not only critisized on here but oh ya, arrested in the past. Guilty conscious?

And the tiny group that would even think about defending this family, hmmm I bet one is the internet hook up that doesnt have anything good to say about anyone in the community.
duh

If you were a fire fighter, paid or volunteer, you would have never posted that. Ethics is a gift from family and community. Must have had a great self centered childhood.
Solution

This dept continues to be run as a liability to our community. What is the solution?

How do we as a community solve this before there is a lawsuit?

Sad that a small group can bring down a village. Sad that a small group pushes out great ethical people, like the man that resigned last week.

This department is in a sad state of affairs but who would blame any of the good people that stay. Why be even associated with all this wrong.

Three members resigned tonight from the dept, all three have the wrong last name! We are going to have real issues in our community. It's rumored that more will leave soon! It's a shame.

I know there are those that will say good riddance. Don't believe all those comments, two of them have over a combined 50 years! The other was a young man who would be considered to be our future leaders.
