    Default Assistance with an unscientific poll............

    Hi, we are a small rural combination department. Some community members think it would be better if we went BACK to being a volunteer department. We have 3, yes 3 volunteer FF's and 10 FT FFs. Please assist me with this informal poll that is in one of our local papers. Please go to www.highcountrysentinel.com and vote NO.
    Thanks for your help.

    It has nothing to do with Brotherhood. I just don't buy the story. Sounds like a disgruntled employee in some sense.

    I can't believe that anyone would rely on a poll to determine the level of staffing they require......

    I'll take him at his word.
