Did you even read the report of the audit results!. I find it a good read if you want to start some place to see the violation's of the law. I was told that a fire official stated that they passed the audit with flying collers.Go read that report it totally contradicts what the people of the fire dept and the public were told.It does'nt matter any way when you live in a town full of spineless jelly fish that gripe and complain but dont have the hind legs to stand on!!.This town has been asleep and taken advantage of.Wake up Harpursville your getting the shaft!.

J barret, you seem to be beating around the bush....why dont you just get down on your hands and knees and pray to Jeff?
HFD has ALWAYS been a family owned shop. Since the the old Buck-Rogers days to the Buck only days of today (when you crap on enough family members, they eventually quit or go to other departments). I remember back in the day when kids werent allowed in the ole fire station unless it was some sort of event. Now I see there is dedicated toys to the station thanks to someone's lust child.
Everything from the current leadership in that place is a farce. From the secret weddings, to the "sharing" among brothers. Secret meetings and private deals. New "rules" just to pressure the town for MORE MONEY! If any of you knew half of the crap out of that station, you would drop your belly button.
To the firefighters and leadership of the surrounding stations....be WARNED!! HFD and it's leadership wants THEIR name on your station and apparatus!!!

HFD use to be the ROGERS Dept. til the Bucklers Shit on them an now it is the BUCKLER Dept.- You Dont get into that Dept. or fit in unless you know some one an you are kissing someone's ass.
An as far as the Hovercraft goes I think they only need that so they can race the Jet Ski...
I live in Harpursville and been to fires - what gets me is we have a fast team but we call for Binghamtons Fast Team also - an several other depts.
BUT I got a good question why did Colesville Ambulance have to go into a sep. building - is it because HFD needed more room for TOYS -
Look at the people who have positions with HFD - I bet they all have kissed one of the bucklers ass.. smooch smooch

So i was just looking through harpursville news and came upon this. Wow all i have to say is if you don't like what the firemen are doing or think you could do it better by all means have at it. I am just a local amazed by all this. I hope none of your houses catch fire the same time a "nice" local's does because yours will surely burn. You should all stop and read from the beginning i am laughing and shocked at the child like behavior. As for the "real firefighter" just stop we do have large area of property and several large farm houses that are 2/3 floors. We like the small town feeling screw the cities with over crowded,angry citizens. Enjoy all! Great Job all firefighters and most of us do appreciate your work.

My hat is off to the firefighters who do the job, day in and day out. However, your comment about a small community seems to be exactly what everyone is making the point about. There seems to be absolutely no accountability with the management of this dept. They seem to have really deep pockets at the taxpayers expense to continually buy unnecessary toys. A rural dept. with farms needs a ladder truck,(and come on, you have 3 story houses,WOW! get real!)or a hovercraft or all of the other toys they have? If those were my tax dollars I would absolutely demand some accountablity from the chief and all of the others involved. You should be more concerned with the basics, since your response times are so great that no amount of toys will make a difference for most fires you will EVER respond to.

I think there is a lot of missing information that people do not know. Many of those toys were either allocated or donated. The Hovercraft was paid for by Senator Libous after the massive flood, the jet ski belongs to Eastern Broome Water Rescue (not Harpursville) it is just housed there as Five Mile Point houses the 2nd one. And the ATV is leased to the department for $1 per year.
