Who paid for the red truck Nelson drives with the big light bar on top of it? Is that a personal vehicle? Did he buy it or did the fire dept funds pay for it?
are you that obsessed with nelson short or is it jealousy that is eating you up? Maybe you need to find a hobby to take up your worthless time and you wont have the time to worry about what is going on in his life. That is his personal truck...fire dept funds pay for fire dept equipment dumba$$...not personal vehicles!!

Well tell me why the fire depts are being audited?? I don't need to call you name, you make a name for yourself by the way you talk. Apparently, the money is being used for more that fd equipment or they wouldn't be getting investigated. Lol

By the way, I get on topix.com to express my opinions and get a kick out of people like you. I can't wait to see the outcome of this all. Looks like east river will be getting a new chief. hopefully, this new chief will get rid of some of the guys (like Brian p) who think they are God's own defense to fire. Driving around in their little cars with lights and sirens, don't you know that's illegal?!

Let me tell you something boy. You probably do know me. I got away from that place long ago when I saw the walls caving in. That place is going nowhere fast.

Please tell me who I am. I've sat here an called out your chief only hoping you can call me out. What's my name?

I've seen auditors at work several times over the years. I have never seen the state police seize records because of a mistake. Auditors routinely find mistakes in records, most times they write you up and your in trouble if the same mistake happens again. They don't seize records unless it's a criminal investigation.

I am not putting anyone on blast, just stating the obvious. I am sorry if you take offense, no I have not tried to join nor do I wish to. I was not stating a personal opinion either, only stating the facts.

I have to say that your facts are sorely miss placed, and misguided as well. Have you stopped to think that maybe the "audit" of other departments is of training records, vehicle maint. records, and not just about money? Anyways, this site is a place for folks like yourself to show your ignorance, and involving yourself in things you have no idea how it is run or governed. If you want to spew out stuff like this get your facts IN ORDER first before you speak. When you speak out like this not knowing all the facts it only makes you look like the idiot not the VFD's. Oh, BTW don't talk down on all the volunteers, because it is for these people you one day may need to call upon for ANY type of emergency that will come save your tail. Volunteers give their time to class, training, and commit themselves to SAVING LIVES without asking for a dime in return. The money that goes to the fire fees is divided up among the 9 volunteer departments in the county. The departments in turn use this for truck maint, training, up keep of equip, purchase of new equip ect... I do not expect you to understand this though; it is very evident you have never given up a single second of your time to help another in need. All you do is spend your time on this site and bash those that give their all to a complete and total strangers.

I know all parties involved although I do NOT like them at all. They all think that they are Gods and above everyone but I would be really surprised if it is anything other than a mistake in book keeping.

How could it be just book keeping? How can you mess up that much in "book keeping" that it becomes a criminal investigation?

I have been!!! Lol Nelson short is apparently taking money from the fire dept funds and using it as his own personal money. Seems like it caught up with him.

I'd love to see a new chief come to east river. Maybe these volunteers wouldn't be so deceived by this man. Like I said before, it seems like its a cult. It's very weird.

ok DAVE you are just pissed cause you didnt get your way when you were there! You really need to learn to grow up, grow a pair and be a man. You come on this site because you think you can hide behind a fake name but we all know its you. Learn to be a man. If you have a problem with Nelson or anyone else then go and talk to them. Dont be chicken$hit and hide behind a computer!!

I'm happy your not on this trash site talking back to me showing your ignorance. I did not start this thread, every operation should have a system of check and balance on a regular basis, since I pay those fire fees you speak of old smart one I should have a say in how my money is governed. I did not bash all vfd's but they should all be accountable for where their money goes. I do believe even the President of the good old U.S is accountable for all decisions, as well as budgets. As far as what was said about the fire department I spoke of, yes in my personal opinion they are a joke, and we are all entitled to our opinion. You just keep showing your intelligence and keep up the good work at the station.

I am not Dave. I'm not sure if you're talking about Dave Thompson or the Dave who got kicked off of east river not long ago. But my name isn't Dave. However, I do not think either one would be jealous or scared of you or Nelson. I think you might be BP from east river... Just a feeling. Are you in on the scamming as well?

So tell us what all is going on at that dept since u know everything?? Tell us about all the times 911 , law, and state fire marshal was contacted......

Love her I agree with your statement that's the point I was trying to make, ALL fire departments need some type of accountability. I'm not sure who holds what title there, most vfd's is the good old boys club, Jokevale is nothing more than a family reunion.
