In support of the Mammoth Fire Department

facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedinmailby feather

I am writing this open letter to the people of Mammoth, AZ in support of the Volunteer Fire Department of Mammoth.

Rudy Burrola has been a volunteer fireman with all the certifications for fire fighting and is currently Fire Chief. He has been a volunteer for 37 years. Both Rudy and his wife Sue are active in the daily operations of the Department. Rudy was the past “Lead Man” for the city workers and left the position due to the harassment, paid suspensions, and unpaid suspensions by the city PWD David Garcia. The city of Mammoth has lost a qualified Lead Man and also has lost him during the day when he was on call for fire department calls. I have listed these facts only because people in Mammoth should know the facts.

Rene Romo has been a volunteer for over 40 years and has all the qualifications for fire fighting and is currently Assist. Fire Chief. I have only listed two fire fighters but the whole crew holds many certificates for fire fighting. I have attended several meetings and the meetings are fun and informative. The treasures report is given by Sue and every dime is accounted for. I have not witnessed this at the City Council Meetings.

The appointed position of Fire Dept. Administrator is Mr. Rick Sanchez. Mr. Sanchez does an excellent job of conducting Fire Dept. meetings and business. People are urged to attend a meeting and see these volunteers in action.

Instead of the city of Mammoth causing problems for the men and women that volunteer their time and put their life in jeopardy with every fire call, we should show our support and thank them for the many years of volunteer services and the lives they have saved over the years.

How many citizens would want to monitor a radio 24-7 for all police and emergency call for 40 years? Talk about dedication to their community!
