The Village of Dixmoor is going to try and shut down their Fire Department and fire all the personell this Wednesday at their Village meeting. This is crazy and will put the lives of many at risk. Good men and women will lose their jobs at this rough time with our country's economy. All you fireman in the south side area our brothers and sisters in Dixmoor need our help. You can call the Dixmoor F.D. and ask for Chief ...Rutyna. He will fill you in on what you can do to help and spread the word to the residents around town the next couple of days. This is that one calling, that one act where we will really see who our real brothers and sisters are and realize the ones putting on a good front or show. If you're not working or there's not a family emergency. There's no reason that you can't be there to show some pride for a job filled with pride and a legacy of tradition

Go back the way it was paid on call. All the south and south west suburban departments that went full time over the years. Now you get a fire you need 4 towns to respond. If you can go back 15,years ago and a,chief what they thought of the mabbas system they would say it sucks never here. Ok hire a bunch of full time people to do a part time job that a kid rite out of high school can most of the time then people didn't do it for the money they did for town pride. I say bring back paid on call firefighters that did becuse they want to not because its a job the union has its place in big city's but not small suburbs. Next time your town gets a house fire look all the towns that respond. This town should start the fire department back over they can't pay for full time people to do a part time job

Is it true only one resident is on the fire department, and Test are from other towns. That is not helping your town

So if they fire them they will just go find a job in towns they are from, Orland Park, Palos Park, Oaklawn, give the people in the community a chance, we can have a private Ambulance in our fire station for half the money, wake up the town is full of young people that have very little opportunity
