"Glad to see this one resurrected. Wondering if the woman who made that incredibly uninformed statement asks the dispatcher when she call 911, "My house is really on fire! Will you please only send paid responders to my house?"

"That is very true.  Fire does not discriminate.  It is an equal opportunity killer. "

Sam Little replied to Kent Calhoun's discussion Volunteer firefighter are not real???!
"Look at it this way volunteers are dedicated. We do it for free, sure but paid guys and girls are just as dedicated, they risk their lives just the same and they do it for their community. So they get a pay check, a person has to eat, has to take…"

Hi Kent, Yeah, that's always a hot topic, no pun intended! When trying to explain to people, whether it be the public, family or friends; that you are a volunteer firefighter. I am always amazed that most don'y even grasp the basic concept of what a volunteer is? Alot of times, they will still ask if get paid or what do you get out of it then? Take care, bro!

I would encourage everyone to electronically sign the petition requesting that the tax exemption for volunteer firefighters be increase from $1000 to $3000.
If you wish you can also send a letter electronically following the instructions on the web site.
Just click on the following link and it will take you to the site where you can add your name to the petition.
It is very straight forward. As well pass it on to all your friends and family...
