why do the budgets increase...are you blind or deaf? For one reason fuel is through the roof. Which means everything that the ambulance service needs is higher. Dont know about the 911 budget but i do know that the ambulance service increases are not misguided. Plus units have to be replaced when they wear out and that increases every year too. Of course it is going to increase.

you forgot to mention raises too. Oh, wait, they didnt give us raises this year..so i guess that dont count. They did raise our insurance 11 percent so the workers actually lost money this year.

question? why unable to actually provide the county commisioners with a budget then? If the hikes are ligit? Back to E911... what are the hikes that cause their budget to be increased by such hundreds and thousands of dollars. I don't doubt the costs for the ambulance service, but i honestly don't know what costs come along with running a 911 service and how it is so great. What is Chris Masiongale exactly in charge of? Please enlighten me and excuse my ignorance.

Like i said i dont know about the E-911 center however the EMS service was turned in on time and the county executive Kenneth Copeland sent it back and told them to cut out the personel raises and other stuff before he would let it be presented to the court.

The downfalls of E911?

Thats a joke, right?

Who would you propose replace him?

I guarantee there isnt a single soul in this county who is capable of directing the 911 center as well (if at all).

Those that bash have absolutely no clue whats involved.

I think Chris has done as good a job as he could with what he has.I don't see what sleeping with anyone has to do with running 911 . If sleeping with people makes you unable to do the job , then we are in bad shape.I doubt they could find anyone to replace him either.

I am sure glad they exist and I think the men and women that are employed by ems do a great job!!! I am so thankful they are there working for such a little amount of money. If they saved your childs life you may think of them as heroes also. You cant pay them what they are worth in my book!

Well, back to E-911, that's what this stream is about. Nobody has still explained exactly what Chris Masiongale does, besides give himself a raise every year and screw everybody he works with. Does that include guys because I understand he was messing around with some guy named Stewart that worked there for a while?

Did you see them have sex? Did you have sex with him? If not, your facts are just hearsay.

I have no idea about what goes on there, and I wouldn't spread gossip about it if I were you.

It is bad when the board members will not do anything when people come to them. Mr911 and the board members need to be replaced. Mr911 has calmed down some when WB got elected. You people are wrong if you think he cannot be replaced.

I guess what you are saying is that if anyone that has done something theirself tells you about it, if you weren't there to see it then you don't believe it....Is that right??? I don't know why this girl would have just told me she did if she didn't. Hell I wouldn't admit it if I did.

ANYBODY doing ANY job CAN be replaced. It is an arogant fool who thinks they are too good or knows to much to be replaced. Just ask the ex-ambulance service director.

Mr. 911 thinks he can do anything and he does. He thinks the county owes him something from where he fell outta that chopper that time. well in my opinion the debt has been paid. He knows that this county will not get rid of him. Only way he will be put out is if in couple years we get a new county mayor and board. Him and the mayor are real tight. Anyone ever notice how he picks his friends or people he knows for the 911 board, like Mr. Dial. There should be someone on that board from other departments instead of who he picks so that they will not get rid of him. Also heard he was in running for Liz's job.

Pathetic, all this rubbish.

You wanna throw stones, dont hide behind the anonymity of the internet.

You have complaints, show up and the next board meeting and voice them.

And if you dont, Id say youre chicken-shit to sit here "invisible" and judge others when you really have no clue what youre talking about.

Mr Masiongale sleeping with everyone here? Hardly. Is he involved with an employee? Yes, and has the approval of the 911 board, and every employee. Its no secret.

Anyone can be replaced? Sure, anyone can, but if you think that he could be replaced, and the quality of service remain what it is, youre sadly mistaken. There isnt anyone qualified to replace him, and replacing him would be doing the citizenry a severe diservice.

The board is made up of people from BOTH counties (Since OP 911 is the only consolidated 911 center in the state), and from several agencies in both counties. But, people get offered positions, dont take them, or dont show up to meetings, and get replaced. The current Chairman of the 911 board is a PICKETT county resident. I take no issue with that, being an Overton county resident myself, as long as they do their jobs, I dont care where theyre from.

And I fail to see what Mr Masiongales accident has to do with this? And what makes you think Mr Masiongale picks the board members?

Geez.

Some of you really need to learn how shit works before you go spouting off at the mouth about shit you only know enough about to get yourself into trouble.

Oh please, if you think there isnt anyone out there that couldnt do his job your crazy. Sure it may not be someone from this county but, there someone in a surrounding county that prolly could. And if he is that good why didnt he get the head of 911 at White county while back when he applied for it.
