Speedy deletion nomination of Abbs Valley -Boissevain - Pocahontas Rescue Squad[edit]

Icon delete.svg

A tag has been placed on Abbs Valley -Boissevain - Pocahontas Rescue Squad requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section A7 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the article appears to be about an organization or company, but it does not indicate how or why the subject is important or significant: that is, why an article about that subject should be included in an encyclopedia. Under the criteria for speedy deletion, such articles may be deleted at any time. Please see the guidelines for what is generally accepted as notable, as well as our subject-specific notability guideline for organizations and companies. You may also wish to consider using a Wizard to help you create articles - see the Article Wizard.

If you think that this notice was placed here in error, you may contest the deletion by adding {{hangon}} to the top of the page that has been nominated for deletion (just below the existing speedy deletion or "db" tag - if no such tag exists then the page is no longer a speedy delete candidate and adding a hangon tag is unnecessary), coupled with adding a note on the talk page explaining your position, but be aware that once tagged for speedy deletion, if the page meets the criterion, it may be deleted without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself, but don't hesitate to add information to the page that would render it more in conformance with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. Lastly, please note that if the page does get deleted, you can contact one of these administrators to request that they userfy the page or have a copy emailed to you.

Information.svg While I appreciate your passion for this subject, it is not Wikipedia's role to give a voice to organizations because the "deserve it." I'm sure the fine people who volunteer for this very difficult job do deserve recognition and indeed praise, but I'm afraid none of that matters as far as Wikipedia is concerned. Wikipedia is meant to contain entries on notable subjects that are of interest to a broad audience. Notability is established through citation of independent, reliable sources such as major newspapers, television stations or news websites with a reputation for journalistic integrity and fact-checking. Every small town and rural area in America, and indeed most of the rest of the world, has paramedics, firemen, etc, but Wikipedia is not not meant to be a directory of every one of them. You can click here to see a partial list of other free websites that will host content that is not suitable for Wikipedia. Beeblebrox (talk) 21:22, 4 October 2010 (UTC)
Please let me know if you need help. Articles do not have to be perfect when posted but must meet certain basic requirements. I know you were adding some sources when the article was deleted. Get them together and contact me on my talk page if you need help. JodyB talk 21:25, 4 October 2010 (UTC)
