Volunteer Fire Departments at risk from unions & government

Posted July 18th, 2010 by geogavino

Not sure where this legislation is currently at. It would appear that politicans have no principles when they threaten volunteer fire departments in order to gain union support. It's funny how people want to believe that essential emergency services must be provided by government when the voluntary activity is right there in front of their eyes...for now.

Nothing like sticking it to the public

As a volunteer firefighter, I can tell you right now that I will leave if they won't let me do it for free. For one, many like myself make more money in what we do now, than what they would pay us to be paid fireman (the pay is horrible). Then you have people like myself that refuse to contribute to a corrupt union. Then the final stake through the heart is, in small poor towns like mine, they can't afford to pay a 20 man fire department like we need here. That is why they have volunteers to begin with, they can't afford to pay.
