Retired Public Safety

Newnan, GA

#61 Jan 5, 2011
I spent nearly 40 years in public safety before I retired. To make it clear, I will state it wasn't from this area. From reading these comments, it is clear that the leadership of this county has put an individual in charge that is not qualified. This concerns me.

Backbone he is so far up Todd Moore's ass he he dont have a backbone. I know because I work their.And thats why I like this site they will never know who I am. I dont think any city fire would want to talk to him because most county firemen dont even want to talk to him are listen to him talk.

Wow the maturity level of these so called firemen . Instead of arguing back and forth on here how about you go do your job. There is no need In this both departments are good and bad in there own way. And In my opinion the people posting on here are the ones who make it bad. And as for the CCFD employee who dosent like it here. Leave. I promise we won't miss you one bit we got along before you and I'm sure we can survive after your gone. I'm sure your just a paycheck anyway. As as for talking about chief denney. He's a great leader and his own man maybe instead of talking behind his back. Go and have a meeting with him like a real man

I cannot believe the behavior and words of the men on this forum. I believe this is one reason that all FD's should require a college degree prior to working. It is obvious that most of you left high school and began your careers without growing up first. These post are like listening to middle school girls arguing. I am ashamed to know you are my hope if in a fire or wreck.

With all due respect Hunter, If Todd Moore had put your family down the last 20 years with slandering remarks you would be mad too. His propaganda has just caught up with him. He has downed the City Fire Dept. and other agencies for way too long!!The Sheriff's Dept. doesn't like him, EMS doesn't like him, 911 doesn't like him, and the City damn sure doesn't like him. The only few that do like him are the ones that are brainwashed at the CCFD. And believe me, there are alot of county fireman that are not brainwashed and are good guys, they are just scared to speak out. Face it, the majority all know the truth!! If you do not believe me, just do a survey. I urge you to call each agency head and ask them their thoughts of Todd Moore. City Fire, City P.D., The Sheriff, Vital Care, County Farm, 911, the EMA director and any other agency you can think of. I guarantee you, not one good thing would be said about Todd Moore.

Maybe NFD-VET is conducting a covert operation like Moore did against some good people in his agency. You know you have to be careful what tactics you use to promote yourself and your agenda. If your maneuvers are dirty others will use what they have learned by their observation of your corrupt actions and later employ the same course against you.
It is easier to get to the top than it is to stay there .

The city fire department is by far superior not only does it have a full staff of ceritified firefighters on staff, but it also has a full staff of building inspectors that spend the majority of their work day hanging around the firehouse. Can't we find something constuctive for them to do.

In Newnan the agencies can get along, fire stations have offices for the building dept and the police dept in them. So, if a police officer is in the area or an inspector is in the area they can use THEIR office, computer, telephone and a shared bathroom. That's what happens when you have harmony and cooperation.

PS...You SHOULD know about sharing, that's why you have a great place to have rookie schools and classes. Newnan was nice enough to let you use their training facilities because you didn't have one. The problem is you don't know how to share, you hog all the space up and keep the other agencies from being able to use the training center.

Blah Blah Blah. Shut up and do your jobs. If you think you have all the answers to solve minor problems of the 2 fire depts. in my home town, then shut-up and put in for the chiefs job. You people are making both depts. look like a bunch of morons. And thank you Coweta Co Fire for the great job you guys have done for my family.

I am sending this link to all the Coweta County Commisioners and City Council Members. Lets see how your bosses feel about the level of maturity many of you have shown. Your name may be unknown, but you as a member of a team, you go down with the boat.

I am disgusted by all three departments CCFD, NFD, EMS. The way that they conduct mutual ops is sickening. One day some innocent civilian is going to pay the price for the arrogance and disconnect between the departments. Then each department will stand there and point fingers at the other.
The biggest problem that I have heard of from all three departments is Todd Moore, Capt. Griffin and their crew of snitches. It's bad when you have a reputation for so much arrogance that: CSO, NPD, GSP, EMS, NFD and your own department CCFD wish you could stop and look at the a--holes you have become just cause you think your sh-- don't stink. Todd Moore and Capt. Griffin thump their chest at the men below them every time they open there mouths. People like that should not have rank on their sleeve, they are not leaders they are dictators. In the military we call that "butter-bar syndrome". I have lead men in to combat and out of combat. If my PFC had a plan and the rest of the men agreed I trusted my PFC he could speak with out being crucified for speaking up. I will say the majority of the captains that staff Car1, Car2 are some of the best leaders of men I have seen. As for saying EMS on/not on scene or giving report over the radio to the car, really? My partner and I can do a lot more if we were not busy talking on the radio. Plus we usually get a blood pressure started by the time they are there. If you wanted to know so bad ride out to the scene.
As for EMS, stop b--ching about the CCFD. Ya'll are just as bad. Your problems are B-shift supervisor (stop being a brat), D. Inman (put on some d-mn gloves), and medic 4 on C-shift (everyone has a bad shift now and then, yours last for like 3 weeks), Emt on medic 5 on C-shift (shut up for like five mins this is not Clayton Co). Stop acting like the CCFD is stealing from you. May be if you could fix the bridge that both parties burned you could stop acting so threatened.
NFD every time I have worked with you I have never had a problem, but ya'll whine about every little thing that CCFD does.

The senior chiefs from NFD, EMS, CCFD need to sit down and bridge the gap or else on day someone will die or property will be damaged and 2 out of the 3 departments will be screaming "not our fault". Wonder what the public will think of that.

Bridging that gap has been tried many times and as things stand now it's hopeless. Coweta commisioners will solidify that disconnect for yrs. to come if Moore becomes chief of that dept.
I think it is an insane relationship between the agencies but I also feel your not dealing with sanity when trying to establish a relation with those in command at the county. As it stands now the disorder is incurable.

The City Fire Dept is normally polite and professional on the radio when talking to dispatchers. CCFD acts like they are talking down to a bunch of first graders. The City is humble and not a bunch of loud mouth jerks...just saying...

Mr. Moore is very full of himself. it is said he has led so many young men down a path of no return. Other than his buddy on the commission, most people claim he has an arrest record, a marriage that split once becasue of cheating, and that he gives his children and other children alcohol. But this is who our conservitive republican leaders want. People should start looking at the top: Theron Gay and the Commissioners. The are very good at cover ups. Do as I say, not as I do.
