Trash makes it hard for firefighters to do job

After watching the Braggs Fire Department (BVFD) put out a brush turned trash fire, I was shocked at what they were exposed to during their fight.

While we all should know it is illegal to dump trash on public property, it is also illegal to dump on private property of others even with permission, also to allow someone to dump their trash on your property. While I cannot for the life of me understand people who want to defile the land with burnable and non-burnable trash, they should realize how dangerous these toxic and explodable materials are to the volunteer firefighters. We have trash service available in our area, once a week for less than five dollars a week!

As property owners we are also stewards of the land, to protect it for future generations and for wildlife. Kudos to BVFD for all they do to protect the citizens of our beautiful country. Let us do our part to protect it too!
