volunteer firefighters

Milledgeville, GA

#1 Apr 26, 2012
I would like to let the citizens know that it is a bad time when a volunteer firefighter is asked to turn in his equipment. The reason was that he did not attend the meetings. I understand that there are rules but get real. When a person works out of town 5 days a week, but he is willing to get up at 3 a.m. and run a fire call, don't you think that he is a dedicated person. I know Twiggs County is always short on volunteers. Why would you even make yourself shorter because someone is trying to make a living plus give to his COMMUNITY?????????? If amy of the volunteers have never missed a meeting or a fire call due to their job, then maybe I could understand it better. Twiggs County needs to open their eyes and realize that volunteers are wxactly that VOLUNTEERS. nothing more. If you could raise a fomily on just volunteer work, then no one would acrually have a real job. I hope and pray that I will never need this person in the capacity that he was very good at. Because I know for a fact that a lot of the volunteers have not answered a call.
