We have before us a golden opportunity to unite as a community and solve a problem. The 29 Palms Fire Department can’t continue to operate the downtown station and the Lear Station in its present financial condition. That is a fact. We the citizens have some choices to make. That’s a fact. Two measures were put before the city to increase funding for the fire department. It failed. That’s a fact. If we do nothing, Lear station will become a paid call station and the downtown station will be a 1 engine station manned by 3 people. That is also fact.
Here is the great part, we can come together and solve this problem. It won’t be easy, but it will be worth it. All the Pioneer Days, Christmas Light Parades, and beautiful signs can’t in and of themselves make a community, but working together for the common good can.
This doesn’t have to be complicated. Let’s work together to find a solution. There are problems, but that shouldn’t be an excuse to push our problems onto County. We are not that kind of people, are we? I don’t believe that we are.
