THANK YOU Jason for helping to focus this debate on what it should have been all along. The good of paid firefighters, volunteer firefighters, and the community. With the events unfolding recently in the media (I will not point fingers at either side) I am afraid that this debate will only become more heated and offensive without the input of individuals such as yourself. I also grew up in our local fire service and am concerned about the fate of this discussion. While I'm not sure if we share the same opinion on the matter I am sure that without your rationality this debate will never progress into a system that is truly best for everyone involved. Your service to your community (both in fire service and how you represent yourself) are a testimate to why New Hanover County is the only place that I have ever been proud enough to call home! THANK YOU!
