Fire department calls

I have recently noticed that when the Middleville Fire Department is toned during the day no one is responding.I am concerned as a taxpayer and past fireman that we need to make a change there or recruit people with either past members or new members. An agreement should be made so that Herkimer county rolls it over to the neighboring department.If a taxpayer is paying for service they deserve it somehow. Lets pull together and help get active people to answer calls during the daytime. Join up and assist.

tones during the day are mostly for EMS where kuyahoora is dispatched as well. Middleville has not had one fire call turned over this year. All dept in county have tough time getting people out during the day. your just upset because you were dismissed from dept. Worry about something else you might have control of

Was not trying to be mean .Just think effort needs to be put out to get people active.I have seen how things have gone down hill ion all departments. Offer some incentives or something. There is no reason to think I was criticising.I know of many ways that it could work but people like you never get over personal issues. I did not mind being thrown out if you had a reason.To set the facts straight I was removed for being out of town for three months. I provided documentation and proved it was 2 months and 23 days.I guess I am glad it was done because people with your mentality is what has destroyed the department. Lot of good men there but a few without a brain. Good luck and sorry that you don,t like a taxpayers opinion.Good luyck with the great group of people going on the board in fairfield.We will find out in two years if they can do anything.

Sorry that ok greg gets upset but if it was someone else it would be ok. I was at home the other day and my neighbor could not breathe and it was close to twenty minutes for the ambulance to arrive. I don't think if your having a heart attack or stroke you want to wait to long.Push for a recruit to the fire department and emts.This a serious thing.If you don't want to answer EMS then you get out of it.For the person who does not like me maybe its time you get a life once and for all.

They've had stuff on the sign outside the fire department for a few months now that says they need help, basically. They are asking people to volunteer but people just don't want to. Not really their faults, ya know? If you know anyone that would be interested, send them their way!
