Sounds like Baltimore might be going the way of DC Fire if the city doesn't get their act figured out. I'd like to toss out my support for Baltimore firefighters (as well as DC and other downsized depts), hang in there. The cost of prevention is probably almost never as high as the additional losses incurred by cutbacks, even with budget savings. Sure, the city might save $5 mil, but the city residents will end up paying more than that in losses and in intangibles like deaths and insecurity, don't you think?

(Tongue-in-cheek statement) -->> The world sure would be nicer if everyone thought like we do.
