Why does the county pay David smith to be the ema director. He never shows up at any fires bad car wrecks or the first bomb threat the county had and it took an hour for him to show up at the second one. And his assistant tommy belcher doesn't do anything either. They are responsible for all training to make sure all dept. know how to handle these things, but from what I hear he can't even do that. Thomas needs to replace him, at least jack Mullins was on the scene doing his job

They brought in bomb sniffing dogs, the THP and the TEMA. It was handled very professionally. Everything was searched. The kids were evacuated until 12 noon or after.

You all must not listen to good then tommy belcher is everywhere when anything is going on,think you better listen a little harder he is 302,and for David Smith i totally agree he is never around, and i think i heard David gets $600 a month.not 1oo% sure about that but pretty close.

Got a friend that works for Hawkins EMA and he said that any EMA is responsible for natural disaster or haz-mat incidents and that they only assist other agencies if they need extra resources. Also told me they respond to every thing cause they're full time. For some reason we're the only county in east TN with a part time one. As for training I've been to three classes with David and Tommy the past year that all of our emergency services were offered and TEMA waivered the roster cause only 10-15 would show up. Not defending or faulting anyone but the fact is if someone is working a job how do we expect them to be everywhere anytime we call.

Say what you want but Jack Mullins did a great job. He helped the ppl in this county. The bad winters getting heaters medicine setting up shelters worked countless hours at a time. He was always going above and beyond. Now im sure ppl are gonna talk bout him. But how much crap u got hid n your closet???? And his personal life is none of anybody's business. He was my teacher yrs ago and ttreated all the kids fair. Ppl raised mortal hell when he was principal but he did his job. I think he needs Antricians job. I know things would b a lot different .
