how very sad. I am reminded of the dishonor brought upon the WFD by one single person way back in 1982-3, and the dark cloud that lingered over the brave-hearted members ever since. Put aside your differences and petty grudges and look at the big picture of LIFE, after all, that's why you give so selflessly of yourselves...for human LIFE. As for those who would stoop so low as to dishonor his fellow company members, know that such selfish behavior reverberates through the company for generations.

One might wonder how happy the politicians, taxpayers and old timey fire brigade is going to be when the volunteer department implodes and Westfield is forced to use a paid Fire Department.

Call the politicians out to fight your fires for you in Westfield. Perhaps they can talk the flames down.

Most people don't understand the affects that the volunteer fire service have on people that VOLUNTEER their time.

Internally, there is no RESPECT. Someone can bust their butts with training, participating and showing up to calls, but because they "don't fit in" they are shunned.

I read in one article, that a county coordinator stated, "that he would rather see one GOOD volunteer instead of 3 or 4 people that might not be able to do it all."

That was enough for me to say, I'm Done!
