What's Going on with the Seekonk Fire Dept?
How many people are aware of what's going on with the towns fire dept?
As a taxpayer and former Call Fighter in town, I am somewhat dismayed with what I see and hear. At a time when people in town are losing their jobs and then their homes, we need to hire more full-time fire fighters? Oh, yea, and how are we going to pay for this? It will be self sustaining, so we're told! Are the new hires going to pay for new equipment, heat and hot water? I just can't see hiring new fighters when we have an active Call System. At this point I want to say that I'm not trying to cause any problems between the Full-time and Call Firefighters. I know, they have enough problems without me causing more.
Now from what I understand, there seems to be a problem within the dept. and it usually starts at the top! And when it was mentioned at a BOS meeting to form a commitee to resolve the problems within the dept. it was met on deaf ears!
I know for a fact the call fighers want to work with the full time staff but their seems to be something in the way.
Now I hear some people saying that the Call Dept. isn't going to work, well I know the Call Dept does want to work.
Sometimes things don't work because people don't want them to work.
Sorry if this was a little to much to digest, but this town needs to know the other side of the what goes on.
Please, anyone with any ideas, or suggestions please leave comments.
