Even the Daily Times reported, (below) the FACT that the City will NOT participate in County calls.
Ireton: Fire service to stop at Salisbury city limits
Salisbury Mayor Jim Ireton said city emergency services would only serve Salisbury proper.
I'm sure all of you recall the big fire back in January, 2008 in Cambridge. We saw Salisbury and even Ocean City, (and several others) respond all the way to Cambridge but the City now refuses to respond to the County.
All those millions of dollars spent on Tankers the City Taxpayers paid for, yet there's a fire hydrant everywhere within City Limits. Why have Tankers?
Perhaps some of you don't realize that Wicomico County does pay the City of Salisbury every single year for fire services.
I wonder, will the Farmers Bank consider closing their Salisbury Branch? Will they consider suing the City for ignoring their desperate need for immediate help?
Imagine the Family who was to have a closing this morning on their very first home, but they can't. How about the new business owner who was supposed to sign papers for their new business loan, but they can't. Then there's all those employees in the main office who have nowhere to go today.
This is a massive and unnecessary loss to our community. Sure, there would have been damage but I highly doubt it would have been $750,000.00 worth of damage.
What a shame.
