the people mostly know how hughes is. what looks bad on the county is we have three fd and bryson cant even get help from the other two because they dont want to work with him. because he is unsafe to work with i have seen this with my own eyes. and he say's he's for the people but is he he has been the cheif for over ten years and just now talking about a subsation when the county trys to make it better for the people and he is stuck to the city limits only . theres something wrong with that.

Well first of all i would like to say that you must not know Mr Hughes that well if you think that he is unsafe. Secondly, Mr Hughes can get better help a whole lot faster from cherokee and qualla than he can from the other departments. And last but not least this is not the first time that Mr. Hughes has proposed the idea for a substation! He presented the idea a few years back and the county rejected him because it was going to be too expensive!

I dont know much about firefighting but i do have a scanner and i do listen to it when i am home and i know Mr. Hughes personally. He is one of the safest people i know. One of the other fire departments had a house fire less than 2 miles above their station and it took that department 21 minutes to get a fire truck on scene. There was a firetruck from another department at the fire first.

Slippy, you better get your facts strait before you go and run your mouth. And if floppys statements are correct then you really need to get a grip on life.

And Mr. Splinter you may qualify yourself by your education, experience and years of service not only as a vounteer fire fighter, career fire fighter, fire officer, fire/rescue instructor, fire inspectior level III, etc. to "think Mr. Muller is full of shi_." Call and raise you, boy!!
