Pike County Emergency Services held a county-wide training session Saturday, Jan. 16, burning a house in Concord to train workers on various firefighting tactics. About 40 emergency workers took part in the controlled burn on the 3500 block of Pedenville Road.
I'm curious. If our fire department and the chief is so terrible, why are the quotes in the paper so positive from the property owners who had fires? Why do they throw parties to thank the fire department and the community for such good treatment, and talk about how fast the response was?
I am not a fire-fighter. I'm not related to any of them. I'm not one of the many families that had to call on the fire-fighters. I'm just honestly curious why so many posts here are so negative, but so many quotes from property owners with fires are so positive.

All the volunteers would like to know, too. We honestly can't answer that question. I've never been on a call where someone was critical. Citizens have always been supportive toward us. I've been to some of their parties and barbeques.
I think there are a very small number of people with nothing else to do but to be hateful. Some of them actually think they can do a better job but have never offered their help. I've some to accept that since I think that it's in their DNA. All of us just want to help people. Thanks for your support.
You don't have to use foul language like our county manager does. One question, was he wearing a Department of Corrections ankle bracelet like our other paid department head from ClayCo had to wear? Marro can sure pickem.
