You may have been following the goings on over in Obion County, Tennessee. Some rural areas of the county have subscriber-paid fire service. That setup received worldwide attention recently as firefighters refused to put out a burning home because the owner failed to subscribe.

The conversation since has been noisy with arguments on various aspects of the system, the way firefighters responded, and the way the press handled the story. So what’s it been like for firefighters there,
and what’s happened since?

South Union (TN) fire chief Kelly Edmison, a nearby department in Obion County, will be joining hosts John Mitchell, Rhett Fleitz, and The Voice of Reason’s Art Goodrich to offer a view from within the turmoil.

Chief Edmison is in a great position to explain the events that followed the initial incident and will update us the new direction being taken by the County.

Not all the fire chiefs are happy with what’s going on and the storm in Obion County continues.

Sounds like a good discussion to tune into.....hopefully all those who took the moral high ground without consideration to the events as well as those who said these are not reall FF's and should turn in their gear, will tune in.
