First of all to Muller,
County only owns one of the firetrucks that is in the BCFD station. Close to 80% of BCFD's calls are outside the county so the county should assist in the fundings. Mr Hughes never said that his department was the only one that could complete the job. And if i am correct during his news interview he commented on the other departments personel. You my friend have no idea what you are talking about!!!
And for Slippy,
Dont worry if you need the fire department they will be there for you. They dont judge people becausse they dont like them or because of something they said or did unlike you. And you have no firefighting background or you would understand why Mr. Hughes left Alarka and West Swain out of the big wild fires. Somebody has to cover the remainingn county and would you not much rather have a department that knows the area responding if your house was on fire? Or would you rather have a department from cashiers who know where veru litlle if any of the roads are at trying to find their way to a fire?
Someone might be there if they are not jacked up on Meth. If your fire fighter are walking around with METH MOUTH (no teeth) they might decide to not answer the call if they are in the middle of catching their buzz.

Half dead, you trod through life
So dependent, a shell of a man
Pitiful, you let your vices tell your fate
Follower of the blind, you have nothing.
My empathy has turned to rage.
My pity has turned to hatred.
In selfishness you've sunken to the depths.
How much lower can you go Curtis?

This has nothing to do with the fire department. But on that note Fuck The Police.

Well the sad thing about all of these posts is that they are all correct, the facts in this situation are clear and abundant, it just depends on who you are going to beleive. I am a firefighter because I love the job and more importantly i care about helping people thats why I joined the fire department. So when any of you people wanna really talk about this whole deal come the station and have tha "balls" to talk to a me in person and not hide behind a screename... just come by and ask to talk to Jared B. Robinson and i will be more than happy to discus your "openions".... BCFD1217

I heard that Curtis Cochran hired some super fat dude from florida and he didn't have anywhere to stay so ole' buttercup called Joey Hughes and asked if the guy could stay above the fire department. Funny he should ask that because he told his deputies if they were caught hanging around the fire dept that they would be fired. So Mr. Hughes said to Mr. Cochran (I won't use the term Sheriff, bc he doesn't deserve to wear a badge, much less be the Sheriff) "which is it? you want to fire ppl for talking to us, or you want to use the upstairs?" I guess Mr. Cochran's yellow streak took hold of him because he hung up on Mr. Hughes.... It made me laugh anyway.

to fuller, and slippy

I am on west swains department and first of all we work hard for people that talk crap about all of use not just west swain or bryson or alarka but we all work together in our own departments and with eachother if bryson needs help and calls us we are there same with us and alarka. Bryson has had problems in the past and so have we none of the department are perfect but i tell u from experiance we all get the same training and we all go in the flames together and from joey to irvin they deserve respect because they have to put up with all us misfits on there department and if u dont have any firefighting back ground u really dot have room to talk. bryson covers bryson city up to the bottom of alarka and then to greasy branch on lower alarka but when west swain gets our stuff strait we will cover that we all have to watch our on depts back and our own but we watch the other depts to

Its not about the money. Everyone knows its not money that keeps the county from ever doing it. Its simple pride! or selfish pride I should say. Its always a pissing match in Swain County when it comes to emergency services. And the only real losers in the county are the people that live here. Maybe all the depts should put the people of the county first and put there selfish pride aside.
And who would be the Administer??? Everyone is so worried about who would run it. Because they cant stand the idea of them not being in charge.
