Fire and EMS in Westover & Fairmont Park
KNOW THE TRUTH ABOUT RESPONSE TIMES:
Fire doubles in size every minute. In cardiac arrest, your chances of survival decrease by 10% every minute you go without CPR and defibrillation. If your house or business catches on fire, only a fire engine can put out the fire and rescue occupants trapped in the building. A Chiefs car lacks water, hoses and a team of firefighters that is needed for fire surpression and life saving services. In an emergency, nothing is more important than response time. When you exclude Chiefs cars, the numbers look starkly different. Don't be fooled by misleading response time data. Johnson City Firefighters have an average response time of under 4 minutes. The response times below are calculated based on the arrival of a fire engine, not a Chiefs car. Call the Town Board and tell them not to put public safety in Westover at risk!
