Drug agents raid suspected meth lab in Wilkes-Barre
Another Meth house in SOUTH Wilkes-Barre. 4 out of 5 (in less than a year) have been SOLIDLY in Engine 3's territory. This 5th one is right on the line between Engine 1 and 3.
But don't worry the mayor has only cut the fire department by 5 men per shift and 2 Engines and wants more.
Hey isn't there a school or 2 REALLY close? And isn't there a daycare very close by? Like a stones throw?
I also seem to remember that even casual contact with Meth residue can be EXTREMELY toxic.
Not that the mayor will do anything to make our children safer. I mean one of the first three (Back in June 2011) was across from a city park. And did public safety go up since?
But don't worry, the mayor has a state-of-the-art security system to protect himself and his family. So don't you worry.
The dictator says it himself
"I would never, never gamble with the safety of residents visitors or guests," Oct 5 2004 (WNEP)
That is EXACTLY what he is doing.
"With the location of three city fire houses - Hollenback at the city's north end, headquarters near center city and the Parrish and High Street station on the city's southern border - the department can respond promptly to all calls" Oct 27, 2008 (The Times Leader) Not with 2 Engines we can't and this proves he knows it.
"The new station will cover the north end of the city. Headquarters will cover center City and the other station will take care of the south. In turn, the residents of the city and firefighters who protect us will be safer and better equipped" June 8, 2005 (WNEP)
And then he cuts our numbers. Right around the time his Intermodel center was going up in cost by 225%. Yeah, he's not sacrificing your safety for his pet projects.
