If some people dish out..they have to expect some maybe some are tired of being victims and are pushing back....all sides are guilty..Wht goes around comes around. Maybe it is finally even.. Don't think either parties are completely innocent. Agree let us stop it now..Enough..

So the hagenhood team was out of.control again on the island. Underage drinking, members fighting, members throwing things hurting members of the public, litterly cuts were caused by this one. Guys intimidating others threats exchanged, etc etc. females barking orders that have nothing to do with the decisions.

Guys going that didn't pay for their rooms, sleeping in trucks and cars, table scraps being given to the same guys that didn't contribute for the food. What happen to the orders pay before you go or you don't go.

I'm sorry there is something wrong with this entire scenario. One person talking about it is a rumor. 4 or 5 people talking about it that we're there kinda makes it factual. Time for new leadership or no team, at least this can't be blamed on the other scapegoat!

Soon enough they will make such fools of themselves they will be asked not to attends certain places like the island.

Great Bend boys didn't make themselves look that great either. Bunch of drunken slobs

This is the last weekend for the drill season. The people of the village of Copenhagen wont have to hear the noise from the drill team. I am sure the partying wont stop in the building, but if we start reporting the underage drinking to authorties, or the many that drive from the parking lot while under the influence. Even if it is driving back across route 12, I am sure it will also come to an end. In the mean time, the home owners that reside around the fire dept have until next spring to figure out how to put an end to all this insulting behavior and put a stop to the noise that so few still call a sport. This is not reflective of the members of the department that want better for the fire service. There still remains a group that is respectful, including the young lady that seems to be a scapegoat for all the BS. I have been around a long time, if it isnt her, it has been many in the past. Until the people making the bad choices take responcibility for their behavior, there will always be someone they target. But you might want to consider this a warning, people have had their full and it wont take much to fill a village board room. Then they will have a larger lottery to pick who they are going to target next.

very insulting to those who belong to the fire department. Let the fire department police their own and let the village handle their own business., as I am sure that they have many items on their plate other than the fire department.

To the above poster concerning noise, Do you complain when the fire whistle goes off or when the sire blows because they are responding to a all to help their fellow residents?

You may think I am nuts or clueless , I know from where I speak It is people on here that spoil the relationship that the Village of Copenhagen has with the Fire Dept. Both agencies are looking for the protection of the residents of the village as well as providing other services. Remember back to the ice storm and microburst, it was the fire department that stepped to the plate to assist the village in this situation.

There is a huge difference between noise from an emergency and noise from grown men acting like children.

Whatever will you bored people find to bitch about once the race season is over?Volunteer your time and keep yourselves busy then you wont have the time to whine and complain. You should be thankful you have people that volunteer to put themselves in danger to save your sorry butts in an emergency. Stop judging others.

Did you ever think that after they have had calls that were not exactly pleasant they do need to have a release from the stress they might feel....Also what is so terrible if they can have a little fun ...maybe you should try it and you will remember what it feels like ...

Hey dont hold back, just tell us how you feel!
To bad it isn't anything we already don't know! Everyone in our community and surrounding areas realize how bad it is in this department. The bad chase away the good, other good wont even enter the doors and it is circling the drain over a family that only cares about power on a track. It alianates the majority but without majority in a meeting room the dept is nothing. But again, no one wants to enter because no one wants to volunteer and deal with all the garbage.

Why take time away from your family to give time and be harrassed and or slandered, shout at and insulted? Ask the members that have left? You'll get the same answer over and over again. Small family = Huge problem!

Here we go again. Same old story. Topix is going to be lit up. Complain, point fingers, it all might be true but where is the solution? Why does this continue? Not just on here but at that dept? How long do we have to hear about it? Do something about all the crap. Someone needs to find a solution. I agree start by ending the drill team. See who remains after that gets stopped. Then finishing cleaning house. But do it and get it over with.
