I want to thank the Great Firefighters of Keavy for coming to my neighborhood in Baldrock and fighting the forest fire today. I have a scanner and after the 2nd no response from Baldrock they were called to come fight our fire. I don't know what is going on at Baldrock Fire Dept. But in the last year they have been going down hill fast... They use to respond so fast and now fires go unanswered. The other day I heard them paged out and no response then their Chief says no problem we don't have a burning ban. You think the Fire Chief would know that yes we do have a ban No Burning except between the hours of 6pm and 6 am. Maybe they should elect a Chief that knows the fire laws. But Keavy you were fast and professional and I hope if my house catches fire they call you... Thanks again You're the Best in Laurel County...

Then do whatever it takes to change it,your own home could depend on it.Keavy is great,used to live in their district.You could set your watch by the time they got that 1 st.call they were there in 10 minutes at most.Live in lilys' now and i think they are good too.Btw they are all hurting for money.They are having drives now so anyone who can,please donate what you can.

They did get a new chief about a year ago. He is a really nice guy and is on a few other departments also. They have around 12 people on their department and that is what they have to have to stay open. He tries his best, but with lil people thy have to respond I'm sure it is hard

You are the same person that gripes about government . Do you not realize that a lot of these county fire depts do not have funds to operate. Keavy Fire dept has a supporting community.. Go to your Laurel Co. Fiscal Court meetings and ask about funding for these small depts. They do not operate on the scale of Laurel Co. Dept, with bingo money and grants.

Departments like bald rock, lily and campground do not get a lot of grants like laurel county FD does. People don't understand that it is hard sometimes for volunteer departments to respond quickly when they don't have many people on their roster and most of them work through the day...

I don't know, but you could go to their meetings on Monday nights and talk to someone and find out when the next board meeting is and tell them how you feel about it.
