Good afternoon all,
Glance at the images.
Is it too early to discuss "possible" solutions to minimize the death and destruction from the fires ?
Are building permits / certificates of occupancy issued without corresponding increases to emergency support services ? These services are frequently listed as public safety, fire and rescue and emergency management. Will not address health care here !
Soon, very soon, we've got to address this.
Here, we have concerns (OK: worries) about vehicle evacuations in re hurricanes.
It's the same to similar issues. Give out residential building permits and do not support the public sector infrastructure to support the increased population. Presto: a major problem pending getting worse.
what's so frustrating is as cities grow, we continue to see emergency services' numbers decline and funding get reduced. A statistic we use in our book is... about 2.1 million responders (Fire/EMS/LEO) support over 310 million Americans.
Good morning Janet and all,
Rounding off, it's roughly 1 responder to 150.
Scary......and getting reduced..........even more scary.
I've always wanted to see fire insurance premiums/rates have a direct relationship to the available fire services. I also wanted to see other insurance be truthfully related to the available Law Enforcement Agency services. Ditto: emergency management and emergency medical.
