fire departments not being sent out on calls

What are the dispatchers thinking? I have heard several instances where there will be a wreck or possible fire reported in the county and the dispatchers will send a deputy to investigate prior to sending the fire department. At times the deputy has to respond from the opposite end of the county and a can take up to 15 or 20 minutes to even get there.
This seems like an unnessesary delay in getting the proper reponders out on the call. What are they going to do when somebody dies or looses thier home because the sheriffs department wants to send a deputy to do a firemans job?
I guess this is just another way for John Davis to promote the department that he is chief of. Seems like Narrows fire dept never has any trouble getting set off for even the smallest of incidents.
a crock

What a crock of bull. This is the biggest lie ive heard yet. In cases of fires and wrecks, FIRE AND RESCUE are always dispatched. Yes the Police responds too. Thank God for all our Emergency workers. Have a good day

I haven't heard any incident when the fire dept hasn't been sent. Sometimes the caller will tell them not to send them it a minor incident, but they do not make the call. If you have a problem then call john and tell him to his face, not on here, I doubt if he even reads this crap, and if he does, he could care less, he knows its not true.

Fire and rescue are automatically dispatched. Yes police respondtoo, and if there are no injuries or fluids leaking, they may have the dispatcher to disregard fire and rescue. So before you go giveing out false information, get your story straight.
