I have been in the Fire Department for 16 years now and I resent that the comments are claiming there was no one there to help the auxiliary...I helped several times for several events so the people commenting on this better get their story straight...and people out there should realize that the only reason the auxiliaries organization existed was because of the fire department...There would have been no need for them if the fire department didnt exsist...also to the few on here that feel a need to call us names,please know that we all volunteer and no we dont get a paycheck at the end of the week for what we do,and you shouldnt insult anyone that takes time out to save lives and help those in need....and as for the past auxiliary our fire department will take this as a lesson learned,bylaws are being changed for the future auxiliary so this does not happen again.....So to everyone bashing our firemen...Have a wonderful day.....

is this what it comes to wrote:
It's sad that when the ladies really needed help no one was there to help. Now that it has dissolved people want to get involved and lay blame. Those "5" have done most of the hard work supporting the Fire dept. and the community for the last few years and this can't be denied. So, instead of slandering them and spreading more rumors, why don't you go out there and volunteer. You get up at 3am and help out, you take the BS from the few disrespectful firemen who really caused all this to happen, and you take the few who are really willing to help and see what it's like. Put your money where your mouth is.
Unfortunately you have already given the new ladies aux. a bad name by lying and libeling and slandering the ladies who have done so much for Forestport. The kind of vile rhetoric you spew is what led all this to happen in the first place.
BULLSHIT they have always been there to support the aux. until someone started the crap the last 2 or 3 years

To Unit 51, or captain obvious you decide, I was obviously not referring to you nor was I bashing the fire dept. I was referring to anyone who has the nerve to speak out against the "5" if they were not in the Ladies Aux. And if they were and did nothing to stop it, then they are as much at fault for it folding as anyone else.
So in the future, unless you feel guilty about how you have treated the President of the former Ladies Aux, like Clover has, then don't take it personally. I was making the point that when push comes to shove and it's 3am in Feb and -20 degrees, see who really shows up to help.

I have been a fireman for 44 years and Treasurer for about 19 and I assure you nobody get paid to be a member. I would like to have the money it has cost me over the years. I am not complaining, I have enjoyed being a member of the department. Because of 3-5 members of the Aux they destroyed an organization that has been arround for Years because of one or two fireman. They sure showed us.

It must not have been to obvious,someone stopped to the firehall to look at the list of members to find out who unit 51 was.I have no guilt in this situation,I didnt shut down an organization over something that was blown out of proportion...and trust me our firemen will be just fine and continue to serve the community like we always have done...So if this was suppose to be a lesson to all of us,it was,make sure the bylaws cover this type of situation so it dont happen again....

I want to thank all the firemen and firewomen for all they have done for this community. You get up at all hours of the night during all weather to serve and protect our community. For that I thank each and everyone of you.

I also want to thank the auxilliary for all that they have done. The old auxilliary will be missed. But, I look forward to meeting the new auxilliary.

Thank you all for all you do. Keep up the great job.

20 years ago fopo was a great place to raise a child and live. Today I am leaving this wonderful town behind. My child is in college and I'm a workaholic witch will kill me before I can enjoy retirement. There used to be just a couple of crooked families in fopo now all kinds of good peepo are goin bad, find yourselves and follow a righteous path. Make your community a decent place to live. Don't protect the bad just because they are your cuz or mommy, get off the nipple and make the move. Tell the truth or burn in hell.

If you are a fireman that cares , you would drop this issue , it doesn't help the firemen at all , didn't even see the firemen giving out apples this year , been doing that for over 20 yrs ..

When will the time come that all parties involved will quit the childish BS, and take responsibility for their own actions in this mess? Why do you insist on making Forestport look like a bunch of ignorant hillbillies live here? It is quite obvious who did what for the community,the firemen are there when anyone has an emergency yes and they should be recognized and thanked because at one time or another everyone of us has or will need them. There was no Halloween party at the fire house this year, why? there has been no Christmas party either, why? The "former" auxiliary president Has made sure the kids still had both parties, just weren't at the fire house. That in itself tells many that she does care! There will even be another free Christmas dinner for anyone who has no family coming into town or has no where to go on Christmas day, This also done by the "Former" auxiliary president, just won't be at the fire house this year. Again, that proves she cares. Why couldn't the firemen hand out apples on Halloween? Why couldn't the firemen put together a Christmas party? To busy judging other people? How bout taking a little time to change the sign at the firehouse...Shouldn't it be a little more festive for the holidays? There are always 2 sides to every situation, if someone doesn't like the way they are being treated its their prerogative to walk away, obviously 5 people didn't appreciate the way they were being treated and chose to walk away, one person does not have that kind of power to make the others leave. Sometimes giving credit where credit is due works wonders, you have enough bad to say about these 5 people,when will you post statements about the good that they do also?

Bury your ego, whomever started this and get this group together again. That is if it hasn't gone too far and reorganizing isn't possible..although I think it may be if someone tries to strike a neutral path that is based on community, and not on ego's.
You just ask some of the oldsters who worked for the community through the FireCo. and who made it special to us all. If you can concentrate on the greater good and how important the Firemen and yes, the Auxiliary too, are to our community, it may be time that this serious need for the community begins to bring forth old and new cooperative efforts. Next thing WOODGATE will be the central focus,........ever think of that??
