The new Council really needs to consider the possibility of having one central location for the new fire station, such as the old Bob Turner site.
Attached is a map of the city that clearly shows a 6 minute response time that covers most of the city and is still well within the allowable response times for an Initial Full Alarm Assignment.
Don’t be fooled by the empire building that is presently going on. Schools, hospitals, churches and banks are being closed and realigned and yet they want to build another fire station.
It’s time to enter the digital age and modernize our public safety services. We need less fires, not more fire stations. The focus needs to be on prevention and enforcement.
