Let's get some answers before more tax dollars are given to Fire Chief Edward Dobernig to spend.
Citizens of New Berlin Thomas Dobernig (Edward's brother) said in
his email and flyer that it is his opinion that we have been tragically
misinformed. Let's get answers to a few question to see who is
Why did the City take over the New Berlin Volunteer Fire Department in 2001?
When the City took over it was said that nothing would change except
for the name, which would change to the City of New Berlin Fire
Department. Note: Edward L. Dobernig was hired (2001) to replace Chief
Ronald Rebatzke the very same year the city "took over". My opinion is
the "City" lied and mislead all of us.
In the same email/flyer titled ("Life Safety Alert" which I can only
assume Thomas had sent out as no one took credit by addressing on the
flyer who was responsible for delivering these to our homes). Thomas
Dobernig (Edward's brother) claims the New Berlin Fire Department needs
more personal.......... Thomas needs to ask his brother Edward
Dobernig why he "fired" or "forced to quit" a large number of the 150
volunteers who gave willingly their time and own money to give
emergency care to our citizens. I know I would like to know?
What happened to the EMT-Intermediate service which Andrew Wahl and
many of the New Berlin Volunteer EMT/FF's worked so hard to bring to
New Berlin's Fire Department?
I am not against the EMT-P service.
We however can not ignore how this came to be and why we will be
asked to pay more in taxes in the very near future. Do not allow
Thomas and Edward Dobernig get away giving us more misleading
Let's see if they will continue to misinform us?
More questions and comments to follow on the BIG ticket spending by our "Fire Chief"....
The above party is not a member of NBCRG. However some interesting questions are asked and deserve to be answered!
In the future please sign your name and phone number so we can verify authenticity.
