I would love to know why i am paying taxes on someone in a red truck that live up at the station of east brooks fire department. It's not right. I bet her or she don't have to pay rent,light bill,telephone bill,internet, or cable there if they have it. Does this person not have a job because i see people and the red truck hiding in the building or outside in the parking lot every day and night. There is alots of time i have seen the white fire truck all over Valdosta and Quitman. That's my gas just going to wast. I pay taxes for them to go to a fire call not to ride up town to do what ever they want. This needs to stop NOW!!! I'm not the only one pissed about this. Half of my neighborhood is mad to.

DEWAYNE SITS AT THE FIRE STATION DAY AND NIGHT. HE DRIVES THE FIRE RESCUE TRUCK ALL OVER THE PLACE THEN GOES FILLS UP AT THE CID AND THAT IS BURNING UP COUNTY MONEY FOR SHERIFF OFFICES. HE NEEDS TO GET HIM A HOUSE, STOP PISSING OF CITIZENS, AND LEAVE THE FIRETRUCK AT THE STATION

This guy Dewayne, Is he the one i see with a girl riding through Quitman in the white fire truck? We need to do something about it because the Vol.Fire Dept. is not a place for anyone to live for free. I was over at my brother's house one night, across the street from the station. We went out of town and got back very late after 1:ooam, there was still a lot of cars and lights on in the fire station. WHAT ARE THEY DOING. Is the younger kids taking over the station and doing what ever they want? What happen to respect?

with all the money the citizens spend for fire protection in East brooks fire district,why did the citizens of Morven just get their insurance rating dropped by one protection class with the $8500 the county funds their fire department with while ours stayed the same? While East Brooks gets close to 90,000 dollars a year now, the fire protection class is the same as it was when the department first started 30 plus years ago. The citizens in this area need to hold the board accountable for their expenditures, and why when the budget keeps increasing for the department, do we still have the same old trucks and no better protection. I have seen one fire truck there that rides on the wrecker as much as the cars for the sheriffs department, and i know it has a lot less miles than the deputies cars. Where does the money go? other departments do more for there citizens with much less , so what is the excuse?

This is for all you uninformed citizens around the East Brooks area. Yes, there are certified fire fighters there at most times of the night, not because they do not have other jobs, and not because they have no other place to stay. Would you rather have someone there close to respond faster, or would you rather watch your home go up in flames and have no one respond? Id like to inform you that East Brooks VFD is the fastest responding dept in Brooks Co. Keep in mind, they are the ones protecting your community.
And this bullshit about the white rescue truck going anywhere and everywhere, i happen to know for a fact they use that truck for special detail, such as having radio problems, going to make purchases strictly for the department. So before you angry citizens jump down the departments throat, take a little time and thank them for their services to your community.

I KNOW?? I dont know where your information is coming from, but that white rescue truck you see does not fill its tank up at the CID office, EBVFD has their own diesel tank that is paid by with dept money to a private company that ALL their fire trucks are filled up by. Any other gas for generators is paid for by personal money.
Tell IT LIKE IT IS- Yes, i know for a fact there are younger guys at that station a lot, but they are the ones that get up and respond in the middle of the nights. If your house caught on fire, wouldnt you want at least SOMEONE to respond and help you out? Youve gotta think about these things, because they dont have to respond. They are strictly volunteer.. they get paid NOTHING for their services. They do it out of the kindness of their hearts.
Public- The red ford that you see parked at that station is a personal vehicle. A person cannot get to the station without a vehicle.
Wheres the Money- EBVFD has quarterly board meetings and any of the public is welcome to voice thier opinions. So if you have something to say, go tell the board members. Dont sit your lazy ass on the computer and talk bullshit about people who are volunteering to keep your community safe. As far as the truck you supposedly see riding on the wrecker, why dont you ride around to all the other departments and compare the trucks. If you dont have your facts straight, keep your mouth shut about something you know nothing about. Those 'old trucks' have never let a house burn completely down in its district. So i see no point in you voicing your worthless opinion.

To Wheres the Money: Morvens insurance rating dropped because they have FIRE HYDRANTS. East Brooks District does not.

MORVEN HAD THE HYDRANTS THE LAST TIME THEY WERE RATED IN 1985, WATER SYSTEMS ARE A CONSIDERATION IN THE PUBLIC PROTECTION CLASS DROP, THE ADDITIONAL EQUIPMENT AND PERSONNEL WERE THE DETERMINING FACTOR IN THE CLASS DROP. EAST BROOKS COULD HAVE DROPPED IT WITH AN ADDITIONAL TANKER AND SHOWING THEY COULD FLOW WATER IN THE RURAL SETTING, IT TAKES A MINIMUM OF 250 GALLONS A MINUTE FLOWING CONTINUOUSLY FOR TWENTY MINUTES AND THEY COULD HAVE DROPPED TO AN "8B", WHICH WOULD HAVE AMOUNTED TO A SAVINGS FOR THEIR CITIZENS, BUT THE EQUIPMENT WAS NOT THERE, AND THE LACK OF SIGNED AGREEMENTS BETWEEN FIRE DEPARTMENTS WERE PART OF WHAT AMOUNTED TO THE SAME RATING AS THE LAST TIME THEY WERE RATED. THE CHANGING OF CHIEFS THAT HAS OCCURRED THERE SEVERAL TIMES IN THE LAST FEW YEARS ALSO PLAYED A PART, BECAUSE RECORDS WERE NOT WHERE THEY COULD BE LOCATED TO SHOW RESPONSES TO ISO, SO THE RATER ONLY HAD SO MUCH TO GO ON. DO NOT TRY TO DOWNPLAY WHAT OTHER DEPARTMENTS DID, MORVEN WAS JUST AN EXAMPLE USED BY A CITIZEN TO HIGHLIGHT WHAT COULD BE DONE, AND IF I HAD THE MONEY AVAILABLE TO ME THAT THEY DO, WE WOULD HAVE LIKELY DROPPED FURTHER.

Furthermore "flames", before you go bashing any other departments, do you even fight fire over here in brooks county. newer equipment is not what makes a fire department. other fire departments here have the equipment that they have because of the lack of funding that these departments suffer from. One department gets more money from their fire tax for themselves than the combined budget for the fire services in the whole county, which includes both vehicle and worker's comp. Insurance for every firefighter and department in the county, and then they also receive the same amount of money as the other departments you are bashing. I think what was being said is that the extra tax money that goes to East Brooks should allow them to excel over the other departments in the county, but last time ISO came down, they ranked the same as everybody else did, so what is this better fire protection you are speaking of. The lack of a hydrant system is not a barrier to lowering ISO's rating, you can look to both Lowndes and Colquitt counties and see evidence of that. If there's any questions about my comments,contact me directly, if you fight fire over there, their chief or assistant chief can give you my number.
