I think the comunity of Watseka have a 1st class operation on all 3 services. I would like to thank them from the bottom of my heart for saving my life twice in the last ten years. this group of people are not reconized enough for the good deed's they have preformed in the city of watseka. people look at the police department for protection and by golly they get it every day. these men and women put there life out there every day. From writing tickets to help solving crimes. They do there best for what they have. same goes for the fire department. that put out fires and help cut trapped people out of a bashed in car. the emt's and the rest of this courages group studying very hard to bring us a better life. these jobs are not easy if they were every one would want to do it. So i say thank you to this group of brave people who do care for the citizens of this town. Plus i want to thank the ones who got me out of the bottom of a boat with my heart attack a few sundays back. that got me to the hospital in time to help me get medical care. And thank god for our hospital and its er who was on top of every thing what was going on with me. I want to thank you all and DR.Katz for giving me the best of care. Thank you all and may god bless you all.

Yes, the police department does fine, the fire department does fine and the ambulance service does fine... These people are great, but what watseka lacks is someone who can mitigate FLOODING.... People don't get to complacent... Watseka will go through another bad flood.. So lets hope that everyone that we mentioned up top that does such a great job has implimented a strategy for the next flood... That would be nice ...

Police dept sucks, fire dept sucks, ambulance service - it all depends on who is on duty. Some of them care, and some of them don't.

Used to live in Watseka years ago. On a news blog, there is a photo of your fire department with a commentary.

They work if sober... you posted a pic of these guys drinking, how biased can ya get... these men are not on duty... you know what happens when your not on duty.... anything ya want because your not working... This pic is biased and people thinking they were on shift when this happened... not true... these gentlemen were off and they can do what ever they want... Your just trying to start something aint going to work if a person looks at this using logic.... come on man, grow up...

You are all wrong. Not on duty, didnt just get off duty and not in a work uniform. Class A uniforms are for social occasions. We just had an awards dinner. Our town was protected by other fireman that voluntereed to come sit at our station in case there was a call during our dinner. And we always have designated non drinkers to respond, whenever we have an event. The amount of mis information on this sight just goes to prove that most of the writers dont have jobs of any type. If you did, you would never have enough time to come up with such bull. If you ever have a question about the fire department, just call. If no one is there, leave your name and number and we will get the correct info to you. But I'm sure that wont happen since it would require you to leave your NAME and NUMBER. Something that doesnt happen here to much.
By the way, it isnt wrong to have a beer in your uniform shirt after a formal dinner. Ever heard of a policemans ball or seen pictures of military people having a drink in uniform at a dinner? Dont be jealous and dont complain because you think we get preferential treatment, just come on down and fill out an application and help serve your community. If you even know what that means. Or you can just sit here and bash the people that do serve the community. I'll take bets on what you will do

Fireman that is well said. But you must admit there are instances that all uniformed officals in this town and anyother town use their so called service to the community to their advantage! An advantage that other citizens in this town don't have. Like if you need a pool filled (using the fire stations water truck to fill them), not fair we have to pay our water bills for filling a pool, you all should as well. Or because you have a squad it is ok to speed or run reds lights or even in an ambulance. Not on a call either. Just down right speed or run a light. If that was one of us we would get a ticket or put in jail if you back talk. See what I am say, isn't it what is good for the goose is good for the gander? Well maybe the goose should behave and gander might as well. Or what about all the cops in bars drinking and hitting on girls (when they are married) on totally sh*t faced. Aren't they suppose to be setting an example! I know all you people that serv the community deserve to have a life, but you should all be respectable upholding citizens. Don't you all take an oath to do so? And by the way not all people serv the community on the 3 named organizations mentioned. I serve an so do many other thru their churches, youth, an so forth. Not all wear a uniform. By the way I am not saying you all do a bad job, I am just saying that all that wear a uniform are perfect or deserve to wear them.

The police are amazing. Great men, and truly care. Even the ones that seem like they don't.. our police are doing a great job!!! Fire dept, I don't know so well, but I'm proud that our town has one. and as far as EMT... they're response time is flawless.
