CVFD responded to the house fire in West Williamson on Slater St. They were there in a few minuets i heard. Had more trucks than WFD.
WFD is a PAID Fire Dept. that the people of Pilliamson DON'T need. Why not just do away with a paid Fire Dept. in that small village?
I mean, c'mon ... They know it's going to end soon!

Its easy to say do without a paid fire department but what guarantees are there Williamson could field enough volunteers to be on call 24/7 to fight fires?

I notice one thing in your post..."I heard." If you didn't see it, then you shouldn't be posting hearsay. Also, if you are not a resident of Williamson, then our fire department of none of your f$%king business!!!

Other towns all across this country have VFD's, and thousands and thousands are much bigger than Williamson and do great jobs. Just as swift and good as a 'paid' Fire Dept.

To the other racy poster. It WAS true. I witnessed it with my own eyes. CVFD is doing Williamson's job and they know it. CVFD is fast as the other first responders in the County. I agree .. Williamson doesn't need a 'paid' Fire Dept.

That's your 'Civil Service' for you ... just like the Unions.

I hope you are told to "eat chit" if you ever need the WFD! But those guys won't, they'll be right there to help your pathetic ass.

instead of worrying about who said what to the daily news.. ought to be more concerned as to why are there firemen standing on the roof of a wood frame house that has fire already burned through the roof and is about to collapse, while the drug evidence tampering moron chief stands there and watches them as shown by the picture in the paper..maybe chattaroy needs to be there afterall..

I support both the police and fire departments, but since you want to discuss the need for the fire department, what is the need for the police department? After all, we have three police agencies within the City limits. I'll tell you why we do, the residents of Williamson want to pay for police and fire protection 24/7 365. If you outsiders don't like that, too freakin' bad! I have yet to read the newspaper where someone came to a council meeting and made the case for a volunteer fire department. You know why? We want the fire department just like it is.
