Well, Well, Well!! What a surprise! Another Blake in the news. The kicker is, CR has been a known abuser for years. Think about it Mason County, each time you call 911 for an emergency, the dispatcher on the other line is stoned out of his mind! Maybe the next time something happens and you need the Mason Fire Department, the Cheif could light his joint off your burning house. The County Commission should implement the random drug testing of all county employees, and not give the boss the heads up so he could warn his kids prior to! Jimmy Diamond, your next!!!!

First of all this is long over due. I think it is time the county commission does something to Chuck Blake and take the Blake 911 off the system. It is amazing that CR was allowed to leave anytime he chose to go get cigerattes or eat...why did he have to go to gallipolis ferry when he passes numerous stores? Why was it that he never was drug tested? It is time that the county commission does something before it is to late..Is it going to take the loss of a police officer or a citizen because the dispatcher was high and didnt get the info right? Also, CR isn't the only one employeed there who is doing it. If the commission would investigate as to why no testing was done (and its not hard to do) then they would have no choice but to fire chuck blake.

To Waste of time: I totally agree with you there is a lot more and there is also a lot of covering up going on. It is time the commission does something. Now we in law enforcement see why info is sometimes wrong..There has been arrest made because info from 911 was wrong..Isn't that right Mr. Blake? remember the arrest made in Flordia because 911 entered the wrong info? Remember the arrest that was almost made by one of the county deputies because of the wrong info? etc. etc. etc. Wake up commissioners.

You better not just check Jimmy Diamond but Kevin Turley also. I thought the law was passed to random drug test these guys. Put the tax payers money to work and start making these guys (and girls) piss in a cup. Let's get Chuck Blake out of there and most of this will come to an abrupt end.

Wouldn't it be nice if the EEOC caught wind of the crap that goes on at the 911 center, even the squad houses for that matter? It is time to take a stand Mason County...remove Chuck Blake from his high horse!!

This whole thing isn't over.. Who knows the EEOC may already know some of the things that go on at the 911 center and ems. However this stuff takes time. Its not going to be the EEOC thats going to solve these problems though its going to take some investigating from an agency who gives a crap. Another thing the employees that work there that aren't doing anything wrong are to chicken shit to stand up for whats right. If it was me and I was them I would want to get rid of the ones who give the place a bad name. The whole ems and 911 agencies are a joke. If the public only knew the real truth the would be outraged.

Get together and determine which of you will be best for which political position. Assure your backgrounds are clean. Take an active role in various aspects of the community. If you want the good in and the bad out, every step must be well thought out. That is how the bad guys got in power in the first place! Plan which of you will get elected to which position. Just remember when you actually make it and if you really want it you will get it. Remember where you came from! Do not let power go to your head as it has for so many in power now. Along the way be prepared for their dirty tricks! When you get there, listen to the people who put you there or someone will replace you. Plan, plan, plan then take action according to the desires of your team! You really can do it! I have read about so many of you who dislike present conditions. Now is the time to make those little steps in the direction of your goals. Just remember along the way. How do you eat an elephant? One bite at a time. Throughout history people like you have had great success! I would enjoy one day hearing the stories of how all of you made great positive changes in the community! Be proud!

The best thing Mason County could do throw Chuck and his family out of the county!!!! Mason County could fill his position with a much better person anyway, I mean from meat cutter to OES Director???? He needs to go and the faster the commissioners realize that, the faster Mason County will start to get better!!! He is a disgrace to the EMS/Fire Service!! I mean what kind of man let's arsonists and potheads work for 911??????? What kind of man thinks EMT's can provide better patient care than Paramedics???? That's what kind of man you people have running your 911 system!!!!! GET BLAKE OUT, ALL THE BLAKES!!!!!!!!!!

you ask why emt over paramedics ok paramedics about 70.000 a year emt 15.000 year.
as for the arsonists they are his kind.
the potheads so they can smoke their dope together.
what kind of a man is he A no good one. so where does the money go in some one pocket it cost about 650.00 from jct of route 2 and 62 to pvh and they run all day and night big money.
so why is blake still there because most other people would not do what he does and if you piss hem off he will have his buddys burn down your house well i hope this help you out as to WHY MR BLAKE IS STILL THERE.

EMT's make about 22,000. a year and medics make about 37,000. a year in Mason County. However you are right about several other things there are a few people there that can do whatever the hell they want and keep their job! No shows, no calls, leave at night while on duty and go sleep around down the street... There is so much nonsense that goes on there and is tolerated. It just depends on who you are and who your buddies there are. It is a joke! It is sad how Mason County EMS is run, but nothing will ever be done. Noone has the balls to stand up and do anything about it and the ones that do have noone to back them up!

Insted of making all the comments on the EMS/911 and Fire Departments, why don't you get a job at the EMS/911, or join the fire departments and see if you can do the job of the people you are so willing to talk about with out even knowing what kind of job they do. So meany people think they can do the work of Emergency works but could you pull a friends lifeless body out of a car.
