Early on in his State of the City address last week, Mayor Kevin Faulconer called out three neighborhoods that have had historically poor emergency response, but benefited from new programs.

After years of broken promises and reluctance from some City Council members, the city put two more firefighters in Encanto. Early results are encouraging and more good news is on the way.

The mayor said the city has had issues responding to emergencies in the South Bay. The truth is more narrow than that — in fact, it’s a single address that causes most problems.

Marti Emerald, head of the City Council’s public safety committee, tried to explain why the city hasn’t gone through with a pilot program to address emergency response time disparities.
