The poultry's returning to their recliners with news that the KC-MO FD-EMS system isn't making a good-enough showing in regard to ambulance response/arrival times in that vast area of KC-MO known as 'The Northland.'
More incredibly- I saw/heard Chief Dyer state in a KSHB-41 news interview during the 11 a.m. newscast that "(This problem) can't be fixed."
Can't be fixed? WTF???
Sure it can be fixed- like everything else all it takes is more crews on more ambulances.
But then again- the City Clowncil is too busy giving money to professional sports playpens and nice- modern drinking holes downtown.
So in reply to Chief Dyer's statement that acceptable response times by EMS crews in the Northland "can't" be fixed- that statement is wrong.
All the citizens need to do is ELECT RESPONSIBLE CITIZENS- not corporate shills- to the City Council- citizens who view this city's infrastructure and emergency services AS A PRIORITY.
Not millions to pro sports playpens and other corporate interests.
