Fire Station Closure

Tom Butt reported tonight, "The city manager and the fire chief have published a memo that purports to explain why Fire Station 61 was selected for closure. According to analysis using a computer model, Fire Station 61 is the only Richmond fire station that can be closed and still retain a 95% response time of 6 minutes or less. Attached to the memo are printouts of the response models and other backup information. Dave Moore has offered to scan the entire package and make it available on sometime later this weekend."

Interesting! Now, will the city explain why it spent all that money on seismic upgrades of a facility that they are now claiming isn't necessary? Stay tuned. Thanks to David for uploading the docs--we wait with bated breath!
