Stop Baltimore City Firehouse closings

681 Signatures Goal: 1,000

There have been too many units shut down in the Baltimore City Fire Dept because of the latest politicians. They are getting Firefighters and Citizens hurt or worse killed. I noticed this when I too needed Fire Dept services. What would take between 3-5 min in the past, turned out to be almost 20min for the first unit to arrive which was across town then longer for a medic unit to arrive. Money is a big factor but the City is mismanaging it on things that are not as important as Emergency services. I plan on sending this to the politicians and possibly the media also.You may find us on facebook also. The petition you are signing is to bring back units and reopen several fire stations throughout the city...Before closings started there were 55 Engines, 4 Fire Boats, & 30 Trucks. There are now 36 Engines, 1 Fire Boat, & 18 Truck Companies.The City and call volume has grown since the 1970's when they first started closing companies, and there are no signs of stopping it anytime soon.
