The voters did have a say in it when they elected the City Officials. I don't understand what there was to vote on concerning the Fire Department though. There were no more Volunteers, but citizens were still having medical emergencies, car wrecks and fires. The city I work for pays a 1 year Firefighter $29.51 per hour and provides all uniforms, certs, continuing education hours and training. River Oaks is paying between 5 and 8 dollars per hour so we are still very fortunate. Unfortunately most people don't understand what is required of a Firefighter. Certifications require continuing education, training is a must. Reports must be filed. Most of the Firefighters that are in River Oaks today did not get their training and certifications on R.O's dime, they either paid for it themselves or they work fulltime for another city. I don't think some of us are being as thankful as we should be. Thanks, Ron
