AFTER ALL OF THE FLAIL OF GETTING A CONTRACT FOR THE FIRE DEPARTMENT…Added the Roster Stith gave Tom Moore

which required 50% of the volunteers to show up for training in Jasper, only one showed up. 1 out of 10 is not 50%. It is more like one out of two. Steve Stith is a LIAR and  the Council is complicit in his lying.

 

Karin’s Comment:  Last Night Councilman Tom Moore was unhappy with the roster provided by Chief Stith, listing of ten firefighters.  Supposedly three on the Roster are in Hamilton County and the rest are in Columbia County.  How far away does it take for a crew of five people to respond to a fire?  Are they five minutes away or how many minutes away?  Are the ones in Columbia County living just over the bridge or how far away are they.
Vice Mayor Mckenzie said he understands that it may be that secrecy as to the Firefighters’ locations/residences are required but it would be nice to know how many minutes it takes to respond.
Remember when Kevin Pittman was the fire chief, the locations and who the firefighters were was not a secret.  These firefighters attended meetings and you knew who they were because they were from White Springs and they actually served our community.  What you have today councilors are liars, the Town Staff and Chief Stith who have no firefighters really who will respond but Manager Tebo has gone against the council from Day 1 to protect Stith and Greene for Bullard and Lofton.  And who is going to respond like the Hamilton County EMS within minutes…not the fire fighters who do not exist.  Vice Mayor Mckenzie stating there was a problem at the Folk Festival and a crew of five people were there in five minutes.  Don’t expect our Fire Department to Respond even if it’s a fire.  Thanks to Genoa Fire Department and our Police Department or no one would respond.

  1. The crew of five people that responded at the folk fest , was two Hamilton Co ems personal , and the rest park staff working the event. At no time did any of the so called fire department show up , nor did they even come by and check on the event. The old fire department used to staff the station , and during events you could see them walking around ensuring visitors were safe. As far as the addresses be secretive they are to a point. But giving distance for the stations are not. Maybe someone should look up and read or reread F.S. 633 on this. It is very enlightening and all real firefighters had read it an Chiefs , real ones know it very well.

  2. You see what it going on here is that a few of Steves personnel from steve full time employer Century Ambulance have begun to work for Hamilton EMS part time or They work full time for Ham EMS this is so the can say they have a fire fighter working all the time. The best part yet is that not only are these people getting paid by Ham EMS but also the town of white springs 100 dollars a shift is this not double dipping which is a illegal if im not mistaken so if this the case then we should have 24 hour coverage 7 days a week 365 days a year from our fire department if they’re being paid to be there. Ill tell you none of steves people live with in 10 minutes of the station. Some are as far away as an hour plus.
