Stop the deception, stop the lies, stop the illusion of fire protection and tell the board and the community the truth and let them make an informed decision on what THEY want to do.

Again, there isn't a department in the parish that can a guarantee a response except for the two departments that have one paid member, and the city combo department that has 5 paid per shift.
So I guess it's a parish wide scam then.
If, like your VFD and your chief, they haven't publicly announced to the board and the citizens the shortcomings of their respective VFDs then YES, it is a parrish wide scam.
If you and your chief are so sure of yourselves and the path you are taking why are you both too scared to tell the truthto the board and the citizens?
Yepper, so how much does the chief get paid to keep this illusion going?
Nothing. None of the officers are paid or receive stipends.
Well, at least the community is getting their money's worth!
