I don't see you volunteering to donate your time! They do a pretty good job for not getting paid a penny. Also, most of them respond faster than any other town around here. Especially the EMTs, so don't be so quick to judge.

Ya kno its sad that ur saying all of this. Its a small town so sorry the trucks arent up to ur standards. As for response time ur a mess bc they have great response time. Like the other poster said u.dont seem.to be volunteering ur valuable time to help tbem out. So why dont u pick on another small town!

If a house burnt 6 times, I am thinking it is not the FD's problem, sounds like an arson! Jeez.

The T'ville fire dept. is one of the best group of volunteers to work with. Any time, any weather, any type of call, when called they show up. They make the best with what they have. More times than not they more with less than other departments of similar size and staffing. Of all the departments I've worked with I rank T'ville at or near the top most of the time.

I have had a fire in Thompsonville and they did an amazing job it was a trailer. I guess who ever is posting negative really doesn't know the team that volunteers for that little town. They are awesome with response time, they do a great job and get nothing in return. They work full time regular jobs but still jump out of bed all through the day or night to help anyone and everyone. While you are asleep in your bed. As far as stealing I believe you are a big fat liar and are making that up just to post a post. I've lived in Thompsonville for over twenty years and am thankful for them all. I've seen what they do and for free. Thank you to all Thompsonville firefighters. Don't let idiots who wouldn't work an hour for free put you down. The people of Thompsonville know what you do and appreciate it.

first of all, I highly doubt they stole any guns from anyone. I know every person on the department including my husband. They are all volunteer and do not get paid. And im sorry for your fathers loss. But it's very rare a house is saved after it has caught on fire.
Thankful

For one almost every single one of the the guys on the fire department would take the shirt off their back to help some one in need. They are volunteer and do it to help people in need they dont get paid they have full time jobs and families. Also it takes money to get new equipment and trucks. Hint non profit and volunteer.

. Yes u were told wrong very wrong. I personally no each and everyone of them, it's a small town there is no pay. They do classes and help and get nothing. Someone is lying. They work full time jobs but still get up in the middle of the night and go when needed.

ya know I don't care what u say about the fire chief. If u feel that way that's your right but do not judge the entire bunch or guys under him who gives their all with what they have. Free. Did I say free.
