Dear Mayor and Council member, As a concerned citizen, I am very upset to learn that you are eroding our public safety. I am asking that you keep public safety and especially fire and paramedic response a top priority during these challenging times. In the event that I have a fire or medical emergency I expect my first responders to arrive soon enough to keep the fire from getting out of control or assist me with a life threatening medical emergency. Quality of life includes public safety and you were elected to represent the priorities of the citizens. I hope you will make sure that if I have to call 911 that my services will be provided at the level that exists today. As I understand it, if you reduce my services I will actually have to pay more for my fire insurance, which is unacceptable. Please maintain our fire and rescue services.
