Pols Will Be Responsible

Pols Will Be Responsible

Dear Editor;

The City Council's decision to go ahead with the construction of a new firehouse-EMS Station borders on the criminal. With the amount of new housing going up on the west end and an already minimal number of fire companies in our area, these politicians and bean counters are putting our lives in jeopardy.

I am sick and tired of people who have no knowledge of certain areas making decisions for us. Our Community Board in their wisdom approved this move without even speaking to firefighters from our area.

Something to think about for all of you who voted for this move from the west end. If there is a fire in your home Ladder 121 is the company that will be going to your second floor (where you and your family will be sleeping) to rescue you from a fire. Are we clear on this fact? Would you care to revote on the issue now? Again!!!!!

Ladder 121 is the company that will be rescuing you and your family from a burning building from the East End down through Breezy Point.

If this new fire house is built and the companies are moved some 12 blocks further east, and someone from the west end of rockaway is killed in a fire we will be holding as criminally liable every politician who voted for this move.

As far as opposition for this project being of a racial nature, How dare you play the race card when talking about the safety of my friends, neighbors and family.

Let's rethink this construction especially at a time when we are supposed to be in severe financial straights.
