In defense of Greenville Twp. Fire Department (from the comments)

I have been on a local department for almost 20 years. I am the chief for several years now. It took me about 5 years to feel comfortable in what I do. This is volunteer department. We do not get a lot of calls, but we do what we can do . GTFD is the same. They get the trucks out the door just as fast or faster than any other volunteer department in the county. I have obverved GTFD and you can not ask for a more dedicated department as far as the members are concerned. They are a young department, have some growing pains but they get the job done. They might have lost a house or a barn but what department hasn't. Including the "full time" Greenville City Fire Department.

Not one department in the county can say they are the perfect department. Every department has their problems.

All departments volunteer, part time and/or full time have their moments on the radio. Sometimes you say something and wish you could take it back.

As for vehicle 580. I do not have a chiefs vehicle. Nor do I want one. I do feel that it is a waste of money but that is my own opinion.

Guys leave the township fire department alone they are no different than any other county volunteer department.
