WOW, Don't get me started. The most polite thing I can say is that Chief Redburn is turning over in his grave at all the BS going on over there. It is a disgrace to West Plains. Damn near everyone of them are a bunch of womanizing bastards or swingers. Professionalism? They think they are the shit but when it comes down to it most have never battled blazes like the Rural Fire Dept. has. They think they are so progressive, check out Mtn. Home just 1000 more people and they have 2 fully staffed stations with 23 career firefighters and 10 volunteer. WP has 11 full time and 16 volunteers.
So maybe they should put some of their money towards staffing their stations instead of high salaries for a Captain they don't need and self promotion. Guess what your the only Fire Dept. in West Plains if we need a fire fought we don't really have a choice, you don't have to sell yourself.

It is a disgrace to think of what the west plains f.d use to be to what it is now. The time where the people respected the fire dept. and were glad to see them when they were in the need of help, or even going down the street in the fire truck. Now the citizens talk about all the cheating and running around the fireman do, frankly it's sad. When you can go to a local bar and see (west plains fire) t-shirts being worn, i think there is a problem when the people wearing them aren't associated with the f.d. at all. It's kinda like saying ive been there (DONE or DID) that and now i got the t-shirt. I think they should start working on their morals and standards and maybe people would like to work for the fd again, that way you would'nt have to put firefighters wanted signs up in front of the stations and at the fairgrounds begging people to work for you.

Which rural department? There are a dozen of them out there. Surely you don't mean Howell Rural? With just a few exceptions their chief keeps anyone good run off!

Check out Mtn Home. Their budget from the city os over twice what west plains is. real easy to hire more people when you have twice the money to deal with. every department in the city in mtn home has lots more than here, its called more MONEY.

Finding people to volunteer is a struggle everywhere across the country. It is not because a WP firefighter wore his shirt in a bar.

wasn't saying anything about a firefighter i was talking about all of their girlfriends. and volunteers would'nt be hard to find if, what they were volunteering for was worthwhile and decent.

Volunteering for fire departments is a nationwide problem. Not just here, but EVERYWHERE. If you are going to bitch at least have a good arguement.

Right now your ranting just makes it sound like you can't get a date with a firefighter. Maybe you should lose a little weight, do something different with your hair, and lose the tude.

Firepup you just proved a point. You are one of the conceded pricks of WPFD. Guess what firemen aren't the only ones getting laid.

You don't get the freakin point you retard. You and Your town don't have volunteers because no one wants to be associated with a group of men who keep a tally of women they sleep with and how they hope their wives don't find out. I think you need to let that sink in for a bit. Their reputation is in the craper homeboy and why would anybody in their right mind want to join up with a group of guys who are known as (!!!MANWHORES!!!)

I have to agree with outsider. The west plains fd is corupt. Let's start with fire chief Tim Bean. Are leaders/managers not supposed to lead by example?? I think he's doing a damn good job. After hiring a female fire fighter and screwing her it seems as though all of the city fire fighters are having a competition to see who can get the in the pants of the most women. Roy Sims, Robbie Smith, Wayne Cormier, and J Cooper. I have no doubts that list should be much larger than what it is. It's amazing how many young women you can see wandering around town with the Fire Department shirts on. Ladies, if you want a shirt just spread!!

when I first arrived in West Plains I donnated $1,000 at thier fill the boot campain and did so for 3 years untill they decided to blast my habachi away with a 30 ft fire truck I even was put on a one year probation and had to pay a $125 fine just for BBQing hot dogs and hamburgers I never donnated a dime since then! so if they dont have funds maybe they need to stop getting people pissed off, and do a job the community realy needs and not do a job cause a fireman wants to get even with his bed partners husband! Last year I donnated $50,000 to Seattle fire department, now they are a hard working bunch. I also have to say that the Dora, MO vollintier FD has it ruff low funds and nothing but fire trap building in thier area they are a membership department witch I donated too regulary in the past. FIREUP if you work for the WPFD you know excatley who I am and your department SUCKS! WPFD needs to fire all and get some honest firemen in their dept

Nothing happened to me. I simply have more of a life than sitting here for hours on end. I check it from time to time but have other things to do. Its called a life.

I said my part. Its a nationwide issue finding volunteers. Proven fact.

You really want to look at a cesspool, look at the only emergency service for hundreds of miles that offers PRIVATE rooms for their employees. Hardly any other service does that, maybe a room for each crew but never private individual rooms. Plus TV's and computers WE PAY FOR. In each room!

Management at SHCA is wild.

I'm pretty sure that if someone were to get caught having an affair or any involvement in a sexual action at SHCA they would be fired immediately. At the FD they would just get another tally, medal of honor, and a t-shirt!
