.I can't believe how incredibly low some of you have gone to say such terrible nasty vicious lies. First, Brittany was sticking up for her step father and you have the gall to say terrible things about her personally and even her beautiful daughter. I was at the wedding...Andy was not trapped...they have a beautiful family and should not have to read such terrible things on here.
Second. The fire dept. needs to regroup and reload. The newest female member has a VERY long history of embedding herself into a group and/or family. She then has to be the center of attention. Once that wears off, she starts telling lies, back stabbing, and any other thing she can do to get the attention back on her. Please founding members look beyond what is happening right now and see what started this dramatic downslide.
As for being old men...there is an 86 year old man in that dept that is still active and I'll bet if your house was burning, you were trapped in a car, or any other emergency you would be damn happy to see that face!
Also, I live in the village, am a tax payer, and never received a letter begging for money. These men and women put in many hours not only raising money, but staying up on training, being active in the community, etc. When your cellar is flooding and it's 20 degrees out, who will be there with the sump pump every few hours? Who opens the hall and feeds the people that get stranded when Rt. 12 is closed? Who were the ones that helped up during the microburst and the two ice storms? I'm thinking the people being the most critical are too young to see the big picture of what a volunteer dept is all about.
Are they perfect? Nope. They are human. And everyone has an opinion. But , I'm damn proud of our little dept and know that if I need help I will get it! I think that's what we need to focus on.
Ironic how you blame any women for any of this! Conflicts over professionalism, violence on dept grounds, a community that is demanding a fire dept be accountable after years of conflicts but lets blame the newest member, a few months ago there was a suspension of two members, was that her fault to? Diesel fuel thefts too, ya she must have drove 15 miles to set us all up. Who cares who she is dating. But ya, slander is bad.
