I think they do a good job,but always crying about how they put their life on the line and should be paid more money. Don't like how they lied to the hard working taxpayers for more money.

I appreciate both the local fire dept. and squads. When my house was on fire they were here in the middle of the night quickly. Also they have come to help lift my husband on many occasions when he has fell and I could not get him up. A big thanks to the Washington township fire dept and Squad 9.

wouldn't want to do their job should make more money is a dangerous job. I think the city used them to get more money the city powers to be are liars do not think the firefighters are they just got used !!

They are over paid, over fed, crybabies.
The city needs mostly volunteer firefighters..
you are a very stupid person, probably on welfare what a piece of work . The city misused the money not the fire dept.go stick ur head up ur arse ! Ask city management where the money is going. You should be spayed or neutered ....

Not bad. Always room for improvement and oversight of what they are doing. Missing funds is great example of no oversight. Most are really good guys.

The tax levy and the way it was obtained made them all look really bad.

They think of themselves as GODS. I think CROOKS. Ripping off the good taxpayers of our city.

So disappointing that the people think so bad of their fire dept...

Just keep filling the boot. Between the taxes and the embezzelment some are making a good living. Too bad the good ones got a black eye too over the no prosecution. So much for the brotherhood. At least a volunteer dept would not have the means to be so greedy.

Most fireman and other first responders for that matter are pretty good guys, at least the ones I know...they do stuff I couldn't do...and I don't think they get paid enough....those guys biggest problem I see is that the depts. are all jealous of each other....Most of the complaining about firemen or policemen come from within...Hell I think they all deserve more money and more praise but I also think they need to lay off each other.
