This is ridiculous. There shouldn't be anyone mouthing the fire department guys. They may not be fighting fire like big city firefighter but I do know for a fact of a few of them who have put their lives on the line by running into a burning house. Yeh, some of those guys up there drink..quite a bit but majority of them take their job (which is volunteer) seriously! They jump up in the middle of the night or leave dinner with their family to go make sure no one is dying in a fire or that more property isn't damaged by a brush fire. They really do care about taking care of the town. I understand everyone has their faults, but please just leave the fire department guys off of topix.

Maybe this isnt the place for this subject to be discussed, but if there are guys on the Fire Dept. that are on drugs it certainly need to be known. I certainly don't want my childrens lives to depend on a drugged up person, volunteer or not!! Your right they volunteer for this responsibility so they should take it seriously enough to leave the drugs alone.

You are right. IF there TRULY is men on the fire department on drugs (not just drinking) then it does need to be exposed and dealt with. I just can't think of any of them that are. If it turns out to be true..I will be shocked and saddened.

Why don't they drug test all the welfare recipients that manipulate our tax dollars? The fire department is volunteer. I don't "volunteer" to work and pay taxes so trash can stay at home, shoot up, give each other homemade tattoos, and neglect their 5+children they can't afford.

Volunteer my A**! They get payed! It may not be by the hour or weekly but at the end of the year they get a nice check. Volunteer departments don't get s**t. So the way I look at it, is't my tax money them drunk fu**ers get so they should drug tested like anyone else. I had a fireman tell me himself that most of them come up to the station a drink beer on drill nights. So they are getting paid to drink on the job. Hell that's the job I want!

We're talking about people responsible for saving lives, not living off welfare.

Um I know they get paid at the end of the year! Its hardly anything at all though. They get $16 a fire! They are lucky to get maybe $1000 at the end of the year, which is nice but that's what mainly pays for Christmas. And the fact that they risk their lives makes it sad that they only get that much. Yes, AFTER drill is over, SOME of them do stay..id say about 5 of them usually. And they do drink for a little bit but no, its not considered drinking on the job. They could get called at ANY time..so does that mean they should NEVER be able to drink? I'm not saying its a great idea but don't act like they are just horrible. Hell, 90% of piggott is alcoholics! Go to moffitts or strawberry's and you will see the town there..DRUNK! There is FAR WORSE THINGS GOING ON IN PIGGOTT to worry about than the fire department. Y'all need to worry about what's going on with electric rates, where school funds go, what high up officials are pulling strings for their family members or mistresses, ect! Quite frankly, start drug testing all the losers here who live off the DHS office...THEN we can talk about the fire department!

Really? 90% of Piggott are alcholics? Get real. You want to get pissy about people talking crap about the fire dept but your going to talk crap about the whole town??? Your either married to one of them or doing one of them cuz you sure know alot about them. You even know hom many stay after drill. Nobody's talking about drinking they are talking about DRUGS, got it DRUGS!!! I don't want a druggie responsible for my kids lives or my home. I guess you think electric rates are more important than that??? WOW

Actually, "paid" was mouthing about them drinking and that they get paid (as if they are making some big salary). And no, I'm not married to any fireman and not sleeping with any either. Why do y'all assume all these firemen have mistresses or are on drugs? Where is this proof or suspicion about their "drug use". My boyfriend is friends with a few of the firemen and has actually been up there before after a drill. And yes, a good majority of piggott is either alcoholics or cheating liars. I hate the fact that all you people are ganging up on one of the few good things about this town! I agreed with you earlier, if some of them are really on drugs, definitely nip that in the butt but when someone starts complaining because the firemen get ONE check at the end of the yr and because every so many drills, a few guys stay afterwards to drink a bit, THAT'S WHEN I GET PISSED! Screw all you shit starters! Until there is hard evidence that a fireman (s) is doing actual drugs, don't come on here! When that day comes, I will be one of the first to say some heads need to roll!

Oh and "think about it", when was the last time one of our "druggy" fireman screwed up while fighting a fire and someone lost their life? NEVER! Whether it's 2 in the afternoon or 2 in the morning, these men come bright eyed and bushy tailed ready to do whatever they can to help! So id say so far, it looks like your kids and house will be just fine!!!!!!

You don't know that they haven't screwed up do you? Maybe someone lost their house cuz of something a fireman did or didn't do. Look I think what they do is great but if they're on drugs they have no business on the fire dept. I didn't start this thread but I know damn well that unless your at every fire you don't know if they're BRIGHT EYED and BUSHY TAILED now do you?? You sure have a crappy opinion about the people in this town but you sure have your head stuck up the fire departments azz!

I am pissed at how y'all will elect the people you do in this town..but then sit and mouth the fire department. You are right, I am not at every fire, so I am sure that there is a chance someone on the fire dept might be on drugs. I highly doubt it though. If so, they need to be gone. I've just heard my boyfriends talks with some of them and personally know some of the firemen and they love what they do and nothing makes them feel better than to help. Now, no I don't think everyone in this town is horrible, but like I said, I think there is far worse things going on in town than the RUMOR that somebody on the fire dept is on drugs. I am defending them because they volunteer to be on call...in the snow and 100 degree weather to help people...they aren't some money hungry council member or mayor or bank president or church leader! Now yes, there is a couple of firemen who work for the school and one who is on the school board, but they are the FEW good guys on those jobs. If whoever started this thread actually thinks someone is on drugs or manipulating people's taxes, take it to the city council or some high up official..hell even a state official if y'all are that worried. I have a lot of respect for the fire dept guys...y'all don't realize all the classes they have to take. You don't just hop on and that's it..they take so many different classes to get certified to do stuff. It just seems this town has to tear down anything/anyone good in it...which gives the few good people in this town a bad rap!

Well if you want my opinion or not here it is. You should be quit proud of our fire department. They hold the quickest response time in the area! As it's already been stated they are volunteers. There is bigger fire departments in bigger cities that can't get to a fire much quicker than these guys. So I'm saying I seriously dought them being on drugs. I salute you guys for doing an outstanding job!

I know first of all this really isn't the way to handle this. It really pains me to say this but the people of this town should hear it. "Enough" I'm sorry but some of these people are right.#1 we do get paid. No matter how little or how much we do get paid.#2 drinking is a problem! I repeat drinking is a problem. The fire station is no place for alcohol. "Enough" I'm sorry but this isn't something that takes place at the end of drill. Some of these guys come to drill drinking and may have been for hours. They drink in the station, front of the station, wherever whenever. It's sad what the drink has become and the only reason I have brought myself to put this on here is in hope people (tax payers) will go to the mayor and seek change.#3 I never have seen drug use! Have I ever thought someone maybe? Yes and No. You never really know it could have been they were drinking or it could have been drugs. Drugs or beer either way, they don't need to be around the station or on fire calls. Yes this is from a true PFD member! I do this seeking the peoples help for change! The tax payers need a department that takes care them more than we do.

PFD, why don't you go to the chief or hold a meeting with all the fire dept guys to discuss this? Threaten them with getting kicked off the dept. I'm just saying, it you really are a real PFD member and you are telling the truth, you need to step up and not rely on us people on topix. Not trying to bi*** at you but I think more would get done by doing what I suggested. Surely the chief would take it seriously if some of his dept guys are this concerned and it is this bad of a problem. In the last day, I have heard of 2 guys on the dept that supposedly have started drinking all the time in the last 6 months of so..and that it has even spilled over to affect their jobs and such. If this is true, y'all should squash this ASAP.

PFD if you don't care i will take this for you. REALLY THE CHIEF! The man who goes home drunk and beats his wife. Well hell ya lets take this problem to him. Are you really that f*cking stupid or blind as hell. that man is part of the problem! Secondly I'm not a member but even I know the drinkers out number the non-drinkers. You just wait ENOUGH in do time hell will come knocking and Piggott Fire Dept. will have to pay up! And there is no way your not a fireman's wife girlfriend ect. You may want to have a talk with your man about what really goes on up at the station. Because lord knows you don't know SH*T!
