Mayor Smith and Chief Rogers:
Our City cannot function with less Firefighters/Paramedics/Emt's. The response times will be slower and the taxpayers Homeowners insurance will go up!! People do not stop having heart attacks or other serious illnesses due to lack of manpower... I would put our Firefighters/Paramedics/ EMT's up against any other department in the State!! Our community does not want contracted Paramedics/EMT's and volunteer firefighters!! Our Department is top notch and well trained, we deserve the best public safety possible for the citizens of Anderson,Indiana. Please leave the political motives behind and put public safety in Anderson first!!
