Re: July 18 Streetwise question: “Despite recent budget cuts for fire agencies, what do you think of their response to the Robbers Fire?”
I think that this was a very unfair question to ask the public. Fires always get firefighters from whereever to fight a fire. The price tag has to include out-of-the-area fire teams.
Their expenses don’t come for nothing. Everything about a fire is so complex and only those directly involved with the entire process can tell us if the budget cut didn’t make a difference.
Ask the same question of the firefighters,that would be a fair assessment.
