Do You know who we can COUNT ON? The dedicated career and volunteer firefighters of a NEW CONSOLIDATED DISTRICT who will be the same incredible people who protect and serve our community today.
Are you suggesting that if the Consolidation is voted down that personnel in the ECFD CANNOT be counted on to do the job that they have always been doing?

The Storm King Fire killed 12 "smoke jumpers and hot shots" horrendous to be sure but says nothing of civilians causalities, of which they were none. I suggest you read " Fire on the Mountain by John McLean," to better educate yourself.
Your concern for an area that you do not llve in is to be commended. I am sure that there are many, myself included that would appreciate your paying our property tax increase even though you do not live anywhere near the district and will pay no tax increase yourself.
Your inference that if this does not pass, we must self rescue is offensive to the ECFD. You statement can only mean that we have always been in a situation of potential self rescue since we do not have a consolidation plan presently. The ECFD would disagree. strongly. You are impugning them with such a statement.

Now tell me how this has any relation to the ballot issue regarding Consolidation of fire prevention services in Park and Jefferson counties.
