Recently the chief of the fire department retired, his son stepped into some very big shoes when he was offered the temporary job of chief. He had been the assistant chief and did a good job, now because his head has gotten even fatter with his new title all he seems to care about is spending the fire departments money. He is buying things everyday for the "fire department" without taking it before the members of the fire departmnent for approval. He wrote the new set of by-laws and is breaking them everyday. He can't make important decisions unless he goes to one of his firefighters, who by the way can't even fight a fire, and his wife to make these decisions she doesn't fight fires either. She can go on scene but doesn't have to wear turn outs nor does she ever have to train for anything. She is just basically there to tell the new chief what to do. Since H2 took over the fire department, several firefighters have quit due to him letting new members come in and take over and change the way things have always been done. The new chief doesn't appreciate his fire fighters or his new title,all he cares about is being H1 and driving the chief truck.He appointed a fire fighter to be the new assitant chief who doesn't have the qualifications he gave him the job because he is his newest friend. Citizens of Henagar need to watch out,last week the fire department lost a home to fire because there are not enough members left who can actually fight a fire, insurance rates are gonna go up because of the ISO ratings. Go to the council meetings and voice your opions. Something needs to be done about our new fire chief before we end up like Ider.

you don't need to be upset at your fire chief for spending money. all monies spent by vol fire depts must be approved by the mayor and town council.they might just need to learn to say no.
