Wow, another picture in the local paper today of a home burned to the ground by CCFD. Maybe you need to spend more time training instead of shooting off your mouth about other agencies. Maybe you can get somebody from Newnan Fire to come out and teach you how to put out a fire.

County fireman, is this the attitude of your whole department? Remember it is the citizens that pay the taxes and the SPLOST and elect the commissioners.

BNREC-Well put!! Paris Island would eat those posers lunch!! But you must think, the biggest accomplishment some of those guys ever had in life was just getting a job in the fire service. There is no excuse for arrogance. The city F.D has always been quiet and humble. We have grown tired of listening to the county's fat mouth's. Alligator mouths with canary asses!!
The City Fire Dept is normally polite and professional on the radio when talking to dispatchers. CCFD acts like they are talking down to a bunch of first graders. The City is humble and not a bunch of loud mouth jerks...just saying...

The County Fire has gone silent, guess it's hard to argue when the paper is full of burned up houses several times a week. Don't you ever get embarrassed to be on the front page with burned up buildings...Oh wait, you did rescue a cat this year. LOL

I work with the city and county every day. The city firemen help us and let us run the medical care. The county fire tries to take over and run everything and try to tell me how to do my job. They don't respect nobody. It always gets worse when toodd moore shows up, he is a know it all. I feel sorry for them county firemen since Chief Hammond retired.

What a shame. Its obvious this is only a small handfull of people from each dept trying to measure their manhood. Neither of which im sure is even measurable by these comments. Both Depts have good and bad aspects and thats a fact. The county saves far more than what burns down, and the ones that do burn are usually so far out that by the time they get there nothing can be done. Thats not the firefighters fault. The city too saves quite a few but also has its flaws. Who did the City call to help at the LTI fire? Who did the city call when workers where injured in a water tower and needed assistance?(And this has happened on more than one occasion) Who did the city call when the lumber yard off MLK burned? Who did the city call when the home on Jackson St burned a few yrs ago? Who does the city call when an EMS crew needs a driver to drive the EMS unit in when one of its citizens it serves so well needs aggresssive care and a firefighter is needed to assist or drive? Who does the city call when a vehicle is off in a lake and advanced rescue and equipment is needed? Who does the city call when a citizen has locked there child in a car by accident and the child is in distress and the city doesnt have the equipment, sense, or ability to yet again serve its citizens properly? Answer to all the above.....Coweta County Fire Dept. And the fire that was supposedly saved and the suspect caught by the city, are you really serious? The guy was sitting on the A/C unit beside the house you moron! And admitted to it. Real detective work there genius. And the county was initially dispatched by 911 instead of the city and had the fire knocked down before the NFD was called then came in and overhauled. But yall saved it and caught the suspect! My word yall are awesome. Just know this. When the stuff hits the fan, or advanced rescue or exrtication is needed the County will come bail you out regardless of how jealous of us you are. Weve been doing it for years so why stop now. And if anyone denies any of the above as fact then you know your a damn lie! All of it was in the paper and your citizens the county bailed out for you know it too! Also, im trying my best to remember when the county had to call the city for any assistance but I just cant seem to find anything. Wonder why? Oh yea, I know! We didnt need them cause we train on multiple facets of Fire/Rescue and EMS and are properly equipped and trained to serve our citizens as well as yalls when yall fall short again!!!! Hahahahahahaaaaa

Who's fault is all this? Todd Moore is the reason for this shit. He brain washes all of us into thinking we are the best, and the city thinks they are the best, but actually Heard Co. fire is better than all you crying bitches! Also what I heard is that the county tries to jump the cities calls,(the car in the lake) and are not wanted there. So take that! Heard Co. Rocks!!

The real truth is that the City put the fire out on Bailey Dr. and held the arsonist physically until law enforcement took him. Fact, the county called the city on the Shenandoah apartnent fire where NFD station 2 extinguished it. Fact, the county just a few days ago called the City to help them on a grass fire. Fact, the county's ego was so big that they did not call the city in to assist with the Spanky's fire and let it burn to the ground!! Fact, in your lies of defending your department, you failed to defend the county fireman that shook a baby until its death!! You failed to defend the county fireman that inticed a minor for sex and the county firefighter that ran over a person and left the scene! Most of the calls you aforementioned that you assisted the city with are the one's the county showed up on without being called to. You all are call jumpers and gloryhounds!! Keep your radio frequency on CCFD Glorified Idiots!!

Coweta Count let a house that is on Jefferson Street burn,(zoned in the County)because they would not call the City for mutual aide. Too bad egos are more important than saving lives and property. Newnan has 2 stations within 3 minutes of the scene. Where did Coweta County have to responded from? Guess they thought all the Coweta County firetrucks were at Chic-Fil-A in Newnan like usual.

I don't remember all this fighting and not being able to get along before Chief Hammond left. Is the problem with the new leadership? It seems to be a common theme in most of the posts.

Guys I encourage each of you to stay positive and professional in your comments. It has a negative impact on both departments for a few of our members to go at each other like this. Both departments have a lot of good guys and gals with a lot of experience and training. Now I can take the negative and positive comments about me and the department I work for and learn from them, if someone in public safety feels a certain way about me or the department I work for I need to know it so if I'm doing something wrong I can make the necessary changes to change their perception. Many times a person with a lot of passion may come off one way but once you get to know him/her they are not what you originally preceived them to be.

Guys I encourage each of you to stay positive with your comments. Negative comments by a few cast negative images on both of our departments. Both of our departments have very dedicated and well trained members. Now I'm a big boy and can take the negative comments about me and the department I work for and I try and learn from both the positive and negative comments. If someone has a negative perception of me or the department I work for I need to know it so I can work on the issue that makes them feel that way so I can change their perception of me or the department. Many times a person that is passionate about what they do is preceived one way but once you meet and work with them you realize their not what you thought they were at all. Make sure you make an effort to meet a person or stop by their department and see how things are done and dont let others make your mind up for you. Everyone Stay Safe.

Is that some people go around tooting their own horn and running every body else down. But, when they are confronted with the truth, they want to run out in the middle of it and cry, "Peace, Peace". In their mind this accomplishes two thing 1- It makes them look good to others looking in 2-it keeps their dirty laundry hid.

Why are you laughing that it is brought to light that CCFD had a fireman run over a person in the parking lot of Taco Mac and drive off, a fireman jailed for shaking a baby to death, and one accused of enticing a minor? You need to keep track of current events.
But I do agree, I would not want them coming help me either.

Sure we understand how childish it is ,it's exactly the point we are tryin to make .When a person in authority is suppose to be leading and inspiring the new guys he trys to do that by regular and systematic demeaning of another dept. Well guess what ? After persistant and constant , belittling and disparaging comments some have grown tired of it.Not everybody is gonna stay on the ground while you kick them.
Maybe now he can eat some of what he has dished out for yrs. and come to a realization that it tastes like s%^t.
