Top Issues Facing Responders:
#1 Scene safety and security
#2 The lack of personal integrity, loyalty, and dedication to duty by too many entering the fire service today.
That's bittersweet "good" news.
However; if you guys don't want to see this guy's record expunged at the end of his parole, you need to go to the sentencing phase and ask the judge to BAR HIM from ever serving on a fire department again. If you don't, he will show up somewhere else after he gets out.
As far as the chief and wife stealing money; having a husband/wife team or any relative that handles money is a bad thing. There should always be two signatures on checks; checks written should be stated at the next meeting and an audit every year should be done.
Man; the department has had a rough go, but with the right people, they will pick it up and be stronger and better.
