Reader Input: Who should pay new fire tab?

-A +A

I believe that there should be fire protection but I don’t think that the people who are the most cautious about fire prevention should pay the tab.

My homeowners insurance was increased this year by 50 percent because of the redesignation of this area as a “wildfire” area.

I believe the funding should come from them. To assess the homeowners in this area an extra fee for fire prevention is essentially a double penalty.
