Wow what a smoke screen we have here. First "PROGRESS" is in any launguage is saving 100, grand a year called moving forward. Then the line of a 12 minute responce time for a difficulty breathing? Really now? In what way would a ladder have helped there ? Faster?? better ride??? A town wide fire dept would only serve as a "Strength in numbers" at contract time. Yet another scare tatic Who ya gonna call? Why not put the old ladder back in service? Its getting rusted at its presant mooring site now. True i DO NOT HAVE ALL THE FACT. iS WHY i POST. sO WE CAN LEARN, nO MOFRE IN THE DARK. The one thing for sure repairs to the ladder we had would not cost 100, grand a year. None other like it? Hmmm wonder why that is???
