Change in fire protection concerns some Town of Manheim residents

There are 67 comments on the WKTV story from Jan 2, 2014, titled Change in fire protection concerns some Town of Manheim residents. In it, WKTV reports that:

Chet Syminski lives in the Town of Manheim, just minutes from the City of Little Falls Fire Department, but now, if he calls 911, he'll have to wait for the Village of Dolgeville volunteer fire department, which could take about a half hour to respond.

Is this true I heard that when the town of Manheim puts that substation in Manheim that Dolgeville fire department will be covering the city of Little Falls. Because little falls won't have a FD I think it would be a good idea

Trying to call people out is to hard for you. Lets try and start with a list of people who may like you guys. The list of people who think your joke is just to large to try calling people out on. I will be more than happy to get a copy of your transmissions the night of the 18 min response call and post it on you tube and share the link on here. As I have stated this is true. You may try and defend by calling me names or trying to chase me off. However your just representing yourselfs better than I can, proving your professionalism.

I actually have a great job, and make plenty of money. I just have the added benefit of being able to call out your inabilities.

This whole thing frosts me. My taxes have quadrupled in the past decade. But now I have a volunteer fire department coming from many miles away if I have a fire? Even though LF is a stones throw?!
And how the heck do the rural ambulances work? I don't even know. Where are they stationed?
Do Manheim residents still call 9-1-1 in case of emergency, or send up smoke signals, or what?
but just look at it this way the volunteer fire department responding will have alot more man power that responds and will put the fire out and there will be tankers bringing water unlike LFFD two personal one truck and won't put water on structure until volunteer firemen get there just a proven fact!!!!!!

Your job: You get to write on Topix and listen to a scanner all day. You must be real important, little fella.

I'm sure another department will hire you. Don't give up the dream.

Stupid is as stupid does wrote:
<quoted text> I called my insurance, and it is not going up. They actually said it's not based on Paid dept for vs Volunteer dept. It is actually based on other factors, distance to nearest hydrant, distance to FD, and the actual rating of the FD. The state actually does rate a fire dept per its responses, and the out comes of the responses. There is a website you can go again which would do a review of the FDs rating, and your insurance would be based on this rating. So this being said please stop trying to defend the LFFD, Kenny gee would be better at putting out a fire.
thanks budeesh
