It was recently brought to my attention that rumors are spreading that our department has only 2 trained firemen. First I would like to say this. If we had only 2, that would be 2 better then 0. But that is not the case at all. Although we have completely restructured our officers as of late, the fire department has several guys with far more training then state minimum requirements, and anyone that has questions concerning this, or any fire department matter can contact me.

Thanks,
Chuck Roberts

From my experiences with the Pine Grove Fire Department, I think they do a great job. I am glad they are there for help when it is needed.

I appreciate that! Although we are not in it for the glory it still means a lot to get a few kind words in return for the many hours of our time that we sacrifice for the good of our town and response area’s

I can understand the sacrifice and the hours. I have had to call on them for help before. Please post whenever you do some kind of fund raiser for the fire department, as I would like to help.

Thank You goes out to the VFD! I can't believe you just heard that that is a old rumor people has been saying that for a long time where have you been Mr. Roberts. I heard that a year ago. Don't pay any attention to that you all do a wonderful job thank god we have one. But there is one thing please when there is any accident could you please keep people away from the scene thats how rumors get started when certain ones are around family should be the only ones around the scene or until they are notified. I understand people will come but unless they are involved or it is a family member please ask them to leave. People need to do there jobs and if they are not a fireman,parimedic,cops, they do not need to be there let people do there jobs without someone else being in the road. Thank You keep up the good work!

Joe PHillips is a great fireman and a consciencious public servant..He is an example of what a fireman, who receives no pay, should be. Viva the Pine Grove Fire Department. Fire Fighters in Cities receive elevated wages and get paid while they sleep. In Pine Grove firemen receive no wages, do a very dangerous job and they are not motivated by money but only by public service: That is its own reward.

really 304; I had heard the things that were being said as well. But in all honesty I learned in grade school to ignor rumors, but since it was addressed in a town meeting I felt the need to say something.

The pine grove vfd does a good job and you can never knock anyone for being a volunteer. But I know for a fact that a volunteer fireman has to take fire officer training to be a chief and ass't chief and I was just wondering if the chief and the other officers have had that required training. Thank you pgvfd for always being there. You guys run into a house when its on fire, when everyone else is running out. That takes balls
