I can understand the fee for the city to repsond to the county. The people in the city pay each year for there fire coverage.

If there was genuine risk to life as say people trapped I doubt the fire department would have stood by. Its a policy of many fire departments to just let empty buildings burn, perhaps keeping a couple of lines on the building so it looks like there trying

Its the same way here in rural Saskatchewan. The rural municipality charges multiple thousands of dollars in property tax but you have to pay for you own fire fighting costs even though the RM bought fire trucks with our tax dollars and the fire fighters are volunteer.

It is the administrators and school boards paying themselves as much or higher as doctors and leasing BMW's and cadillac SUV's on our tax dime so there isn't much left over for grading roads, all they basically offer is limited liability.

Video at newslink..

County residence are required to pay a $75 dollar fee each year if they want the fire dept to come out if they have a fire..this older couple hadnt paid..

the fire dept refused multipy times..and didnt come out until the neighbors house caught fire too because they had paid the yearly fee.

The local news media was told to leave after fire dept called police because of protesters.


sad sad story... glad there wasnt someone in the fire like grandchildren or anyone for that matter

It probably wasn't a fee so they would come and put out your house fire. It was probably a volunteer payment.

We have a volunteer dept here and there is a voluntary charge of $6 a month on your water bill every month.

When someone gets pissed off at the water dept, they always ask for the fire charge to be removed.

And yes there is a list of those that don't pay it and yes most that don't pay it are the wealthy that own large houses.

When the 911 tone goes out, they don't know who is on the list, and neither do the firefighters.

shark = wicked nanny


drinking the blood of 'innocents'

so much for statist policies UN seeks to implement


I remember the Russian revolution led to the "state" taking all land away from most land holders...and they relinquished it for "the good of the state" as all were suppose to be fed then...

However, my grandmother died in Russia from starvation, one of the SIX MILLION THAT STARVED TO DEATH under the care of the "state"


6,000,000 died there from starvation

so to those who trust such govt claiming "reform" and "safety" I see those who accommodate as suicide victims...for they buy the lie and sleep soundly without inner comprehension

If it were an ideal world and all 'behaved' it would be one thing-but right now the tech is used against many-

and that is psychopathic

Until an ideal world presents-I will steer clear of 'their' fixes...I am no threat-without an act of the Most High I am well past my years of bringing forth progeny

FOOD and WATER will be the LEVERS they will use to force many in being complicit in their own destruction-fearing the tinge or ache of hunger, they eat themselves, by actions many WILL take.

5 * uP as well

so the masses still snoring will be provided a bit more time to comprehend what is coming down

the trick is not to believe proven liars regardless of their affirmations of good intentions


the DEVIL IS IN the details-most few are informed of-MEANING CONSENT

I still do not consent

nor will I to this-I would of attempted to do something-but to stand there doing nothing, regardless of orders and watch it burn-the elderly couples life and memories-almost gone at their age already-reduced to nursing homes that steal any resources they have RAPIDLY

sickening

I cannot imagine if I were a man and a firefighter, to even feel at all okay about this is frightful-obviously way too much estrogen in the environment

If I were them-I would not want the repercussions of that-no sleep for them at night now...choices-all make them, and ALL OF THEM HAVE CONSEQUENCES

I am a grandmother-and I would of done something...

Pathetic!!!

How did the fire start?

Firefighters in my state were caught starting fires recently. They were caught by video cam somehow and they said they did it for Overtime pay.

Hopefully no-one is starting them because someone is on a list for not paying the $75 fee.

This Mayor should be told not only are the townspeople upset, people around the country are, it is a disgrace and those people are elderly citizens.

It took 2 hours for the fire to spread from the barrels to an out building then to the house. The fire department was called way way before the house caught fire. The resident offered to pay ANY fee regardless how high for them to respond and was told it was too late. It is obvious they wanted to make an example out of these people. They should have responded to the fire and charged them a huge fee, but still respond to save life and limb and prevent this fire from spreading to adjacent property no matter what!


Yeah, maybe but they sent a strong message to anyone who refuses to pay...just think of it as insurance, if you don't buy auto insurance and then have a wreck you don't tell the insurance company to cover the damage and then you'll pay...


hi Brief!

Initially I thought of that as well, it is like insurance; but, then there is a moral/ethical issue as well as a safety issue. Morally/ethically it is wrong not help if you can; safety - well they did put out the fire on the neighbor's property who did pay.

It would be equivalent to an EMT watch you suffer and not offer to treat you because you didn't pay an EMS fee.

I agree with the whole "personal responsibility" and the homeowner gambled his home by not paying the $75.00 fee and lost; but, the ethical side of me doesn't agree with not offering assistance.
 Quoting: Smilin' Irish Eyes


I know, and I'm torn emotionally but logically speaking here are my thoughts: How many years can you expect to live in your home without a fire? Hopefully you will never have one, however you can expect a major financial setback of 10K or more every decade...think about it, have you had a major setback costing 10K or more in the last decade?

now, if you pay the required $75/per year for the average of 10 years that we agreed is reasonable for a major setback, that's $7,500...which is probably enough, when pooled with the other paying home owners to cover expenses for payroll and maintenance...rent etc...for a fire department...without the money they can't exist to help anyone...

Poor people do poor people things, and rich people do rich people things.

You cannot legislate the poor into prosperity by legislating the wealthy out of prosperity.

What one person receives without working for, another person must work for without receiving.

The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else.

When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them, and the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for, that my dear friend, is the beginning of the end of any nation.

You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it!

If a property ownwer decides NOT to support the upkeep of local firefighting equipment and the training of fire fighters they have NO RIGHT to expect to use those services.

They decided the $75 was better off in their own pockets, hope they can hire a motel room for that now that they have no house. Blowbacks a bitch.
