I can't believe the City of Palo Alto solution to negotiating with the fire fighters is to keep firestation 8 closed. The only ones being harmed are the residents west of 280 and the +/-3000 acres in Palo Alto foothills.
No other neighborhood would put up with 20 minute response times. Wild Fires can happen any day not just high fire days.

The council is just using the firefighters as an excuse - they wanted to use the money instead on the new "environmental coordinator" position, which will cost $150,000 - an amount of money that is very close to the cost of staffing the fire station.

This demonstrates just how much the City of Palo Alto, the regional open space distric and the committee for green foothills cares for the region West of Hwy 280 to Skyline Blvd.. The entire area should be closed to the general public until the rainy season arrives..
