A woman's house burned in South Fulton while firefighters watched from a distance. The firefighters did not put out the fire because the woman had not paid the $75 fire tax.

Another House Burns, Another Fire Department Doesn't Respond…Yet another reason to have Fire Protection. Chino Valley Fire District does not respond outside their Territory…Or do they?
Chino Valley Fire District (CVFD) received a request to respond to a structure fire on North Juniper Drive in Paulden on the morning of November 4, 2010. Because the property was located outside the boundaries of the Chino Valley Fire District, an engine was not dispatched. The Prescott Regional Communication Center received reports of a house heavily involved with fire. The house was completely destroyed by the fire. Approximately thirty minutes after the initial call, CVFD was requested by Yavapai County Sheriff's Office to respond to a medical emergency at the same address. An engine was dispatched, found no medical emergency, and returned to the station.Read More »

Statter on The Fire Critic “You are Right, You are Wrong”. Make up your mind! Plus Firefighter Netcast and Audio from South Fulton
Dave mentions that I am right about everything...but then says I am wrong. Make up your mind Dave. You know I am right, everyone knows I am right. I am not putting the spin on it that everyone else is. Hell Dave, I keep reading this post of yours (here) and I am beginning to think you might have multiple personalities. You keep saying I am right, then saying I am wrong. You say you agree with me, then saying you disagree with me. Make up your mind Dave. You love pointing I am wrong by saying I am right! It is hard to follow.Read More »

This situation is a black eye for the fire service. The fault lies with the homeowners for not paying the $75 fee. However, the public will not view it as such. The media is also jumping on the band wagon...saying that the homeowner is the victim. The only thing that failed here was the homeowner not paying the fee. Everything else operated as it should.Read More »
