You folks who put your faces on the news tonight for your seconds of fame....shame on you. For you are a disgrace. Volunteer Fire Dept, there was one call, it was on Saturday,Boomer and Montgomery having to carry Smithers Dept. Where do you get your information? There were people in and out of the Dept all weekend at least 4 to 5 taking swift water training, a couple more new FF taking a Section 1 training course to learn how to fight fires. No they were not able to run the call and the town will know why and they will wonder about the idiots who were in front of the camera representing their town, what a joke, former council member there my be a reason you are no longer a council member.Just saying..Boomer and Montgomery both will tell anyone why there is mutual aid and how sometimes they each only have one or two members show up for a call and yes Volunteer Fire Dept do need to be able to count on their Brother or Sister Departments. They sure a heck cant count on their towns people sitting by with two much time on their hands looking for negative. I live close by and drive front street often and always see activity going on at the Fire Dept, I have seen SFD out on rainy, cold or snowy nights taking down fallen trees, helping motorist, accidents as well as fire responses and you will continue to see these men and women who have jobs and family continue to give their time and talents to ungrateful people like you!!! God Bless all our Fire Departments good or bad at least they are trying to make a difference. What are you doing?

Not all of the three people interviewed commented on the volunteer fire department. go back and listen to the comments. one said sounds like the people are upset. upset about what she doesn't know. just that they are upset. could have been about the truck being red not pink. who knows. and if you say then why comment. put a mike in your face and would you have walked away? fame.. dont think so. your face on local tv and your friends can say i saw you are tv priceless. funny but not fame. you should really be careful about calling children bad names. it doesn't become you.

Before you go and stir a pot I ask you to find out both sides please, if you still decide to create problems without knowing everything then what you say is nothing more than a opinion the Chief of the fd is very good he's even trying to fix a mess that someone else left. Maybe you should come and sit in one of the meetings and you will see how everything goes and then you will be able to make a comment until then I ask you to keep your mouth closed. Because your doing nothing but slandering a VOLUNTEER fd and the people that are apart of it

Bottom line, they did not pay compensation bills and no one on a need to know basis was told. Tax dollars keep the doors of that station open so the taxpayers should have been informed of the problem. The public was put at risk.

And if them guys had nothing to hide why wouldn't they say something to the news. It said she went over there asking to talk to them. No one would say anything. If their just fixing problems and doin great work over there why wouldn't they say so?

It's been three ears you idiot,but in child years like your mind is I am sure it feels like six. I spoke to several members on the FD they have not been shut down for any amount of time, I suggest you call the Fire Marshall with that question but I am sure you wont as it is easier for you to run yoour retarded mouth, that is where I called cause I like to live by truth and fact rather than a couple of childish disgruntled previous members who arent worth their salt in any part of their loves. Grow up and get a real job rather than playing the childish games you and stop wasting peoples time.

Obviously you are a stoner!!!! There are no compensation issues, if the Dept had been shut down there would have been a "Seize and Desist Order" placed on the door from the state, you people are clueless as to how real laws or state issues are handled, you children choose to run around like little brats messing in good peoples lives and it will come back and bite you. Everyone knows where this leak or story has come from, it's nothing new and was expected for you sir are like clockwork....and baahahaaa you are just a smaller joke version of him. The Dept is growing with dedicated MEN, training is thriving with completed Section II, a couple of younger Men in Section I and a full swift water team other than the last team appears to have misplaced several wet suits.....hmmmmmmmmmmmm???? Your right maybe the Chief does need to check into the misappropriation of some funds as well as gear. But I know as well as most others when Mr Whittington took over the Fire Dept there was over $130,000.00 in outstanding bills and a vehicle ready to be reposessed and compensation not payed, I heard the Deputy Chief tell a group he left because he got stuck with a bad credit report for that reason, he came back under the new administration, the station now owes very little just regular running and upkeep for the Dept and they own every vehicle. So stop the BS and grow some. You talk like they are given 100's of thousand to opperate on...hardly...small town, low population. Why dont you spend time gathering truth rather than spreading lies it would far more productive for all.

Mad hatter, your hat must be too tight. Sounds like the truth hurts. Channel 13 will get to the bottom of the problem with the closing. Hang in there.

Not sure about if the Department was shut down or not but I can say whoever is footing the water bill should tell the guys to wash their personal vechicles at home. Thats the only thing I ever see going on in front of the station,males and females lined up washing their own cars/trucks. If you need to cut some cost start with that! All of us residents of Smithers have to pay at the car wash or use our own water to keep our rides washed so whats fair is fair!

So how about that cease and desist order that was served, and Kanawha County cutting off funding? Told you there was more to come. Guess what there still is more to come. Your arrogance will be your downfall.

What about a 911 dispatcher saying over the radio that "per 1901 there is no longer a station 6?" sounds like a whittington yet again trying to sweep things under the rug. Im not knocking all 6 members, the younger group is a gung hoe dedicated group, but without the proper upbringing have no chance to do anything in the fire service. The best thing for the city would be for the chief to step down and the asst chief to go to rehab

I was there tonight and seen yet another temper rant thrown by Ms chief. Of course we all get blamed for talking to people that she doesnt approve of. im so tired of this immature stuff that she always brings all of us in. Just stop and leave us alone, we dont care. Its your own fault and nobody else. You should stopped back when everyone told u to. I know posting this you will be back next week demanding who wrote this. i hope your time is limited and are away so we can all finally get along
