How deep is the corruption and mismanagement in Caldwell county fire rescue departments. Rumors and gossip about Caldwell county fire rescue departments problems are state and nationwide. We hope all the accusations, rumors and complaints about the mismanagement, conflict of interest, questionable spending, questionable salaries, questionable benefits, wasteful spending, falsifying documents, falsifying membership rosters, waste, fraud, and abuse of tax money are just that ‘rumors‘. We hope no one or no department is guilty of this. We hope no one looses their job or faces jail time that would make all fire departments and all innocent members look bad. Keep in mind politicians, political A_ _ Kissers and people with connections to Raleigh will come out unscathed and smelling like a rose. Good luck if you do get investigated and audit.
