We have a great group of firefighters here in Chaska, and Tim Weibe is the perfect choice to lead them full time. To the current and past volunteer chiefs, Thank you for your commitment. You've done an excellent job!

No no no. These conservative suburbs have been preaching for years that government isn't the solution and that help should be volunteers...perhaps they should have hired a private company to put out fires. Or perhaps you are now realizing the reality that bigger cities have been living with..that volunteers and less government doesn't get the job done.

Todays Fire Service is nowhere close to what it was even 20 years ago. Their is so much expected of "volunteer" firefighters to keep up with all the rules and regulations it's almost impossible both finacially and time needed. I do not know the new chief but hats off to Chaska for making "an investment in their future" i hope more cities can learn from their action.
