Hey everyone, would like to get everyone's thoughts on St. Charles Fire and Rescue. I haven't lived here long at all, but I have been in the yard alot of times, or in the bed,and see the ambulance roll by sometimes 1, 2, 3, and even one time 5 times within 24 hours. I hear alot of good about them. What does everyon else think. Like I said, I have only been here for 3 months, would like to know. Thanks.

I'd rather call pennington than st. charles heck I'd bet jonesville would make it to your house in st. charles before the st. charles fire department.

Pennington's squad can't quite in-fighting and pointing fingers long enough to make a run. And they have used the other topix board to admit all the "dirt" that's going on there. I will no call them, donate to them, until the mayor or town council gets to the bottom of things.

i want to give my applause to st. charles rescue. i have heard on several occasions here lately that after several attempts to get pennington rescue and even jonesville to respond to a call they had to resort to calling st. charles which was out of the area but did respond and quickly.

u never know if they get to the calls or not so stop putting down all the squads as u don't know if they make it to the calls.,there is times they make the calls but others will not here so soon no1 will hear as things will change.,ones on st squad don't work so if they ran lots of calls it's due to they don't work no jobs,all names posted on board mostly likely don't work. this talk of squads is old,sayn that pg all they do is fuss don't run calls,hate to bust ye bubbles but pg has been doing their job on calls. if things don't improve sooner or later there will be no squads running calls due to fact is money gets low,so if wont to keep squads going need to donate money to all of them instead of sitting behind the pc whining saying no1 runs calls when matters of fact they do.

the captain (sherry) is doing a great job @ st charles. Keep up the good work. You are always there to help when needed no matter where you have to go. I don't know how you do it but I'm sure people appreciate you for what you do.

Well, Tom Tom if you live in Rose Hill how would you know when St. Charles Rescue came by. My guess is you live on 421 that's the only way you would see or hear them because there is no other way for them to travel with their patient to the hospital. I think you have lived there longer than 3 mo. more like 7 or 8 years.

Keep up the good work and ignore the trash on here. They couldn't of got a more dedicated person for the job......You hang in there for Jonesville and Pennington because you know they don't run half the time. We know who helps the community out the most, it's no secret!

yeah right keep dreaming St.Charles was taking all calls until the other dept members started getting paid so they should remove Volunteer from the buildings St.Charles has always been the first to respond on any call and we never had all the fancy equipment the other departments had
