BOS quiet on Feb. 5 fire
The biggest question remaining with this ongoing review and the series of stories written on this fatal Feb. 5 fire is how long will the Board of Supervisors remain quiet?
Are they waiting for the report before making any changes? Do they need this internal report to make changes that would benefit the system now?
Or will they continue to ignore the issue and e-mails from concerned residents asking supervisors to take action.
I did meet with one supervisor and brought this incident up. He told me that they do plan to make some changes, but I couldn’t get specifics.
Is the Fire and Rescue Commission, knowing that a report has been made public that says additional training in search and rescue techniques is necessary, going to continue having 20-minute meetings?
Will the commission change its mind and bring the state back in for a study of the combined system?
There are so many questions out there to which residents want answers and so far they’ve been met with silence.
Who is going to take charge of this effort?
