The Mayor has spoken. What are your thoughts?

From the Source: 

"Q: Are there any plans to build additional fire stations in the Central Valley? I read that it took the engine from Wailuku 12 minutes to respond to the brush fire in Mā‘alaea last week. One can assume that it took other responding engines even longer to arrive given the distances involved. Granted, it was just a brush fire this time, but 12 minutes is an eternity when someone’s life or property are in danger.

There are several newer housing developments all around old Maui Lani, where I live. I think the amount of fire protection provided is inadequate."
