911 center

As a long time first responder, I was particularly interested in The News-Item headline regarding the 911 center. The article clearly articulated that the majority commissioners feel that the 911 center was operating correctly and safely. Later that very day, the 911 center dispatched the wrong box card into the wrong township. The closest fire company was not dispatched to an incident in their own municipality. I find it disheartening that the majority commissioners simply dismissed the concerns of the county fire chiefs. It is time for the first responders of this county to band together and support candidates who promote public safety.

Texans are constantly complaining about migrants although California has 50% more. 2 solutions for them......Turn Texas into a blue state and the problem will go away or have Mexico annex Texas and the migrants will be fighting to leave!
