The RHATT Pack Watch
Today is Thursday, April 4th, Day 344 of the RHATT Pack Watch.
Did you know that someone actually drove the White Springs Fire Truck out of the Fake Fire Department the other day. Does the Red-face Ratt, disgraced “Cousin” Steve “The Brothel Operator” or the “Out of Towner” Lapdog “Just Keep Paying Me” Tebow think for one minute this qualifies as an act that returns the Fake Fire Department to a Real Fire Department? Give us a break…one out of NINE or TEN months doesn’t a Fire Department make!
Before the Ratt gave his Boy Toy, “Cousin” Andrew “The Evidence Destroyer”, White Springs new shiny red Emergency Vehicle “Cousin” Andrew used to use that very same Fire Truck to go to the hardware store to get a soft drink and shoot the breeze with “Cousin” Don. In fact, “Cousin” Andrew made that trip virtually every day and stayed at the hardware store for hours. Guess it takes a long time to finish a soft drink.
Well, on this most recent Fire Truck Outing, it didn’t go to the hardware store. According to an eyewitness sighting, the Fire Truck was driven to the boat ramp and back. Yep, that’s it! One Fire Truck round trip drive from the Fire Station to the boat ramp and back. And then “Cousin” Steve declares that White Springs has a fully functional Fire Department. Hey, if you believe that one, the “Watch” knows where there’s a bridge you might be interested in.
Compare that to the Fire Department before the Ratt, the “Gang of Thugs”, the Lapdog and “Cousins” Steve and Andrew. At that time White Springs had a highly qualified and highly respected individual, Kevin Pittman, as Fire Chief. Pittman became chief shortly after the State Fire Marshall reviewed White Springs Fire Department and nearly decertified it. Starting from scratch, Chief Pittman began resolving challenges and recruiting volunteers. In relatively short order, Chief Pittman was able to round up and train a full contingent of volunteers. He had eight qualified and certified volunteer Fire Fighters. As mentioned above, Chief Pittman was known to and respected by other Fire Fighting Organizations in the region, including the State Forestry Service. At his request, the State Forestry Service provided White Springs Fire Department with a larger full service Fire Truck, a number of breathing apparatus as well as other equipment.
Next Chief Pittman prepared a grant to the US Department of Agriculture Rural Development fund for two Emergency Vehicles which White Springs received. Chief Pittman’s objective was to develop the White Springs Fire Department into the best Fire Department in rural Florida. He was well on the way to achieving this goal. Whenever the White Springs Fire Department was called upon for any type of emergency, Chief Pittman and his fire fighters were fully responsive, timely and maintained a perfect safety record. The improvements made in the White Springs’ Fire Department were so dramatic that White Springs’ rating under the Insurance Services Office, Inc’s Public Protection Classification Rating System began improving immediately mitigating a homeowner’s insurance rate decrease. Oh, By the Way, under Chief Pittman, no White Springs Fire Truck was used to go to the hardware store so someone could get a soft drink.
Okay, White Springs, who would you prefer, disgraced “Cousin” Steve or revered Kevin Pittman as Fire Chief. Chief Pittman, that is what the “Watch” thought. On Aprill 23rd you’ll have an opportunity to elect a Town Council that will restore the White Springs Fire Department and the rest of the Town’s infrastructure. In the interim, you have an opportunity to help the FBI office in Jacksonville (904) 248-7000 with information about any and all criminals on the Town Council and Administration.
