I don't know what would have happened to me if the great guys at the 53rd St. Station had not of been so prompt getting to my house then to the hospital, this was about 3 years ago at the end of this month. We need our men that help our community, scary to think we could have less. Thank You To the 53rd St. EMT'S

When I lived in Anderson I lost my home (the only one I had ever had) due to a fire! If it wasn't for our AFD my neighbors would have lost their homes too. It was a close call & took 4 hours to put out & had to use water, sand, & foam

WHEN WE HAD A FIRE IN OUR HOUSE LAST YEAR IT TOOK THE FIRE DEPT OVER TEN MINUTES TO RESPOND TO A DRYER FIRE. WE WERE OUT OF OUR HOME FOR 6 MONTHS. IT COSTS OVER 40 THOUSAND DOLLARS TO CLEAN, REPAIR, AND REPALCE THINGS THAT I LOST AND WE HAD TO LIVE OUT OF A HOTEL WITH 4 ADULTS AND 2 BABIES. I HAD TO CALL 911 THREETIMES TO SEE IF THE TRUCKS WERE ON THE WAY......NO WAY DO I THINK IT IS WISE IDEA TO CUT DOWN ON THE NUMBER OF FIREFIGHTERS IN THIS TOWN.

I HAD TO CALL 911 THREETIMES TO SEE IF THE TRUCKS WERE ON THE WAY......NO WAY DO I THINK IT IS WISE IDEA TO CUT DOWN ON THE NUMBER OF FIREFIGHTERS IN THIS TOWN. HAD THAT ALREADY HAVE BEEN THE CASE MY HOUSE WOULD PROBABLY HAVE BURNT TO THE GROUND BECAUSE I WAS TOLD THEY WERE ON ANOTHER CALL. MR MAYOR MY QUESTION IS DO YOU WANT ALL THE NEIGHBORS TO BUY BUCKETS SO THEY CAN PUT OUT THE FIRES IN OUR HOMES AND MAYBE LOOSE LIVES OR CAN YOU CUT COST SOMEWHERE ELSE? THE PEOPLE OF THIS CITY HAVE ALREADY LOST ENOUGH WITH THE LOSS OF FACTORIES AND THOSE INCOMES. HOW MANY MORE LIVES NEED TO BE RUINED BECAUSE THE POWERS THAT OVERN THIS TOWN NEED TO CUT COSTS? THE NEXT THING YOU WILL BE DOING IS PUTTING OUT FIRES IN THE HOUSES THAT ARE FORECLOSED ON BECAUSE YOU TOOK MORE JOBS AWAY FROM THIS CITY. THE WISE THINGS WOULD BE TO LEAVE THINGS ALONE. IF ITS NOT BROKE DOn't FIX IT.

All civil servants are treated like doormats! The greedy politicians are the ones that should be taking a pay cut! People you need to vote and choose the candidates that will put the citizens first!!!

Maybe we should vote on how much these desk pushers make. Tired of people taking it out on the Unions, people who really work and or die. Example, 9-11, who was there,? All the police and fire, paramedics. ALL unions built this country with blood and sweat.

Please don’t blame everything on the politicians. When the Factories closed and Big business left Anderson, Soooo…. did the economy. I can’t imagine trying to deal with such a mess! But you are all right, safety Should Not be cut. And the “City Hall” beatification stinks of politics. It is what it is though. Or is it! Respectfully Greg Kath and Crew.
