San Diego’s three mayoral candidates agree. Disparities in emergency response times across neighborhoods must end.
“It is the city’s moral obligation to provide equitable emergency services to every community,” City Councilman Kevin Faulconer says in his neighborhoods plan.
Broadly, Faulconer, City Councilman David Alvarez and former Assemblyman Nathan Fletcher agree on the solution, too.
The city should build new fire stations in neighborhoods that a 2011 report says have the greatest risk for a delayed response. This is the same as what city leaders have been promising since the report came out, even though none of the stations has been built. The candidates say they’re going to be the one to actually resolve the problem.
