What happened at OHFD was embarrassing and tragic. However, once a discrepancy was noticed, it was quickly acted upon and stopped. You, OP, are wrong and are trying to drag the City of Oak Hill through the mud.
Some of the best firefighters and cops I know work for the City of Oak Hill, let's get that straight now. I'm not saying that OHFD and OHPD are better than other fire departments or police depts, every FD and PD has it's strengths and weaknesses. But every member of the City government of Oak Hill that I know takes their job very seriously and takes pride in doing good for the City and Citizens of Oak Hill. And if you don't like that a particular elected official is doing, don't vote for them.
And also, Chief 12 (Oak Hill VFD's Chief) is not a paid position. OHFD's Chief is a volunteer firefighter, like the rest of the fire department. They receive $15 per call across the board.
The Fire Department is made up of volunteer firefighters who are incorporated and three firemen who are paid by the City of Oak Hill. These are Fire Chief Tim Richardson, Assistant Fire Chief Robert Begley, Lieutenant Robert Brash who does the State Fair Reporting. In addition to this, they get paid for every call regardless!

You can verify for yourself that the 'three' are paid a salary!

Their needs to be checks and balances, there are none, the city needs a complete face lift and an overhaul. People need to be held accountable for their actions. It starts with the people, by the people for the people. The city has no face, how long has it been since the elected officials were out in the city talking to the people?

Everybody knows that part of the problem is TIM RICHARDSON'S BI-POLAR DISORDER.

If you have a crazy person working for you (maybe he has schizophrenia too?), it's going to make life hard on everybody.

If you catch him on a "good" day, he's just a jerk.

If you catch him on a "bad" day, he's a raging lunatic. I know from personal experience. The county has been sued because of his nuttiness:

“Basically, we have a few unelected bureaucrats making policy rather than following established rules and long-standing procedures....

Tim Richardson is an embarrassment to his community. Either get yourself some medication/treatment or go do something else you jerk.

I was born and raised in Oak Hill and i have seen my fare share of good people and bad one's there are some good cops and very bad ones here in Oak Hill most of them do a very good job and there are a few who think this town belongs to them and the law doesn't apply to them most of the cops dont even know the written law and i know for a fact that some of them enjoy harrasing certain people so make sure you dont get on their bad side a friend of mine was robbed by a young girl for 500 dollars last week and he reported it and the police did come but acted like they didnt care and a few hours after they left he called them to find out if they were going to write up a report and they said he was bothering the secretary and they found the girl and she told them that he gave her the money because he propositioned her and she did the job and after he wanted his money back, how stupid can they be there were several people in the house when she was there i was one and she was only there for about 10 minutes when his wallet came up missing the rest of us asked her to empty her purse and she grabbed up her stuff and took off running we tried to stop her but as she was running down the steps she was laughing and said screw you ,now if she was innocent why did she run and the law either was to lazy or they are just that stupid but if she admited to prostitution to the cops and having the money they should have at least do something to her but i also know she runs with a big time drug dealer so maybe they were afraid and knowing them they will be pretty upset about my comment and come looking for me but i served and fought for my country I will always express my views because i have earned it,the people run this town not the chief or his men this stuff needs to STOP AND THEY NEED TO ACT WITH SOME HONOR AND PROFESIONALISM
