Waco, White hall. Union City, Red lick, and Kirksville In that order(the first two can go in any order). They are all pretty good for Volunteer depts. White Hall gets the most runs because of the interstate being in their district.

They all are about the same in their requirements. I believe that Kirksville was looking for volunteers a few months ago, you can call the county fire dept. and they will be glad to give you the info.

white hall you just have to be a college kid, waco you have to chew tobacco, red lick you have to be willing to never make a run, union city you have to know where union city is, and kirksville...well...kirksville you can be brain-dead but as long as you are breathing, even on life support, you can run with them...oh, and u have to be willing to fight fire without gear.

Waco- They're the ones everyone makes fun of in this county.

White Hall- Good dept, but like a previous post said, alot of college kids.

Union City- Good dept, not many runs at all, but good training.

Kirksville- Don't really know a whole lot about them.

Red Lick- Same as Kirksville, don't know too much
yep

Don't join kirksville if you actually want to make runs. They rarely get anything! But the guys on that dept. are good guys though. A little crazy, but good guys.

Kirksville has good people, but they have a backasswards Chief who really doesn't know anything about putting out fires or how to run a fire ground. And he refuses to believe in modern (proven) fire extinguishing techniques.

whitehall is full of ignorant collage kids and dumb ass bill hicks
waco is a bunch of want to bees. with a member that is a constable that got busted for pulling people over and dont have the right to do so, go spud.
kirkeville is a small dept. but seems to be good
union is a good dept. except for the doty boy and dad
redlick, well i wouldnt live down there, they might set your house on fire to get a fire run. the county didnt have 10 runs a year in that area until there was a dept. there, now probably around 50 or so runs a year. cant believe theres anything left for you to set on fire elmo

Since when did a constable lose his ability to do what he was elected to do ? In his district he has the same exact authority as ths sheriff, this means he CAN pull you iver and write you a ticket, he can serve a sumons, and yes he can arrest you as long as he is in his district.

I didn't know the constable could make traffic stops and such. I thought they could only assist the sheriff's dept. But idk.

constables have the same jurisdiction and powers as the sheriff. the only stipulation is that his office must be in the district he was elected, however he can do his job in other jurisdictions in his county. his jurisdiction and authority is identical to the sheriff.

I've been looking for a good one, but am confused where to go too. Too bad the city got rid of its volunteer program years ago, because I live in town.

Join up with the madison county rescue squad. It's not the fire dept. But they get more runs than any other volunteer fire dept from what i understand.

Fact you are an ignorant jerk, Mike can run a fireground, sorry we at Kirksville are so far behind the times for your high standards. Mike is a conservative christian person, you don't like that well.....
Try this, I can't see why you complain, why should the dpartment drop a ton of money until a firefighter gets their training out of the way? He needs the training to get his fire science degree then stay by the ashland building and play with the yellow truck that can't fight fires! But since we are all brain dead what whould we know? Sorry I didn't get my degrees from EKU but I fell into this trap about going to better schools to get my degrees. By the way are you an EKU trained firefighter? If so can I get you off of my porch by paying for the pizza? If you feel that I have hurt your feelings....too bad! If you really feel the need to confront me then drive on we can do that too, you decide.
