Am I the only one who knows there is a county fire station just south of lassen/Cohasset.

I would hope the guy in charge of fire safety would be aware of that.

Gee maybe they could respond to an emergency at the airport. I think its called mutual aid.

No wonder our city is in a mess its run by idiots.

Oh wait but it doesn't scare enough people if you have coverage, and their agenda is to scare the public and get more money. If only they would do the job they are supposed to. Leave the financials to our city manager and the two council members who get it.

Good points!!

So if they are saving $2500 a day, I would guess it must cost at least $3000 to fully staff?

And we have 6 stations?

$18000 a day to have fire protection??

Not to mention the overhead, inspector etc.

No wonder the city is broke, we gotta look at cal fire!!
