Muse VFD Members Train with K9 Officer

Cecil Township Police Officer Jeff Holt, K9 Officer Miner and a representative from Invisible Fence helped members learn how to affix oxygen masks to animals.

A representative from Invisible Fence joined Officer Jeff Holt and K9 Officer Miner at the Thursday for training.

The representative gave the department pet rescue oxygen mask kits for animals that suffer from smoke inhalation—and taught Muse VFD members how to affix them.

"He donated two kits, and one is going to be kept on the engine, and the other will be kept on the utility truck we use for rescue calls," said EMT-Firefighter Jim Faure.

to the beyotch............ as the Safety Officer and EMT and vice president of the Muse VFC I am appalled at your snide remark. Jeff Holt and his partner Miner took their time to stop at our station to help us with this demonstration. Our fire department has a good working relationship with the ENTIRE Cecil Police Force, and it actually sickens me that you would suggest corruption. Maybe you are a hater because you do not obey the laws of this great land. Oh, what have you done for the township lately? I for one, as well as my brother and sister firefighters, have been a volunteer for 18 years doing our best to protect you and all visitors to this township without a dime for pay. We are volunteers, unpaid professionals. If only you knew these officers like I do maybe you would see things differently. I am quite proud to call them my friends.

Cecil PD - Actually, you can opine, but you do not have the right to personally attack someone on the site. I will offer my number again if you have anything you'd like to discuss me me personally. It is 724-510-5659. I removed the comments for this reason. But again: I would be happy to speak with you personally anytime!

See, I have nothing to discuss with you personally. I'm commenting on the story that you wrote, but apparently anything that doesn't paint the PD in a glimmering light gets deleted. You leave up Paul's comments, which are obviously biased because he works in the public sector along with Mr. Holt, yet you delete mine which provided specific anecdotes to back up my previous accusations. This site (or its editor) is obviously afraid to have any dissenting opinions (note: criticizing a public employee's work is not the same as a personal attack. I did not attack his personality, family, or anything else besides the JOB that we as taxpayers are paying him to do! Geez, big brother anyone?) expressed, and to that I wonder what kind of "journalism" you proclaim to be doing here.
Cecil pd's beyotch February 14, 2012 at 08:50 PM
And I will reiterate, for Paul's sake, that the only reason I am hiding behind this name is that a certain policeman, we'll call him "John Doe", has used questionable police tactics on myself and several others that I know. Each experience is similar in that "John Doe" presumed guilt from the start, and took advantage of peoples' ignorance of the law to further his own agenda. Therefore, there's NO way I'm putting my name out there just so that I can have a target on my back.

There is dissenting opinion and then there is accusing someone of illegal behavior. Your comments had nothing to do with the story, and they violate our terms of service. But, to answer your question: I'm the kind of journalist who would be happy to discuss any of your concerns. So my offer still stands. If I don't hear from you, I hope you have a great day!
