Letter To The Editor
As we speak the Hebron Fire Department EMS and the Parsonsburg Fire Department EMS are getting dispatched to cover ambulance calls in Salisbury and the Salisbury Fire Department is getting dispatched to "Stand By" until Hebron and Parsonsburg ambulances get there.
This is called a mismanagement of funds and resources. The city and county tax dollars is funding paid firemen to sit around and chase ambulance calls all day since there are rarely any fires.
Again as noted recent Letter To The Editor, the volunteers in the Salisbury Fire Department are not getting dispatched to any calls unless the paid fire engines are committed on another medical assist.
Rick Hoppes has all but forced the Volunteers of the Salisbury Fire Department out the door. They have no say in running the day to day operations and Rick Hoppes has taken control of the monies funded to the VOLUNTEERS from Wicomico County.
This is how the Fire Chief and Mayors(Jim Ireton and Jake Day) spend your city and county tax dollars.
This happens every single day in the City of Salisbury and YOUR life is in Jeopardy!! Obviously the wasteful spending of your county tax dollars is endorsed by County Executive Bob Culver because he has been in Office for 2 years and has done absolutely NOTHING about it!!
