Great Job to the police and firefighter and first aid squads for the jobs well done. even if the butler fire chief wanted to take the firefighters masks who showed up to the call suspend them and charge them with theft. he didnt even care about what they did. but he did kept talking about how then stole the fire truck and went to an unofficial fire even though bloomingdale fire requested butler fire to the scene. makes you wounder if other butler fire men who have been suspended and removed and or charge with something on the dept since he became chief really did what he says they have? AFTER ALL he didnt even tell his men that went to this fire Good Job Guys, but wanted to take their masks, suspend them and charge them with theft. Because they did steel the firetruck and go to the call!!
