  1. Why, Why, Why? says:

    Why isn’t there a county wide ordinance that requires people to notify the local fire department Chief and the county dispatch as well when they are doing a controlled burn? ( For that matter, get a permit) One of these times someone is going to get hurt or even killed when a firefighter, responding to a GRASS Fire! gets into an accident with an ordinary citizen. The Fire truck will more that likely win every time.

    Mr. Poole, something to start on.

    This is not any kind of put down on fire fighters driving. It just that every time you put on the lights an sirens you are putting yourselves and every one else at risk.

    Fire Departments will keep responding when citizens call 911. It’s always better to be safe and turn them around then to not get them coming. Don’t Monday morning quarterback things that you have no control over. It is more likely then not that a citizen that was driving by or seem it from a distance and called. They did not go looking for the source and info when they called dispatch.

    To confused it’s not Monday quarterback. It’s making sure Randall Fire Dept is operating correctly.
