San Diego leaders have known for years that the risk of late emergency medical responses is higher in some of the city’s poorest and brownest neighborhoods. They haven’t spent a dime to fix it.

Statement: “I have my press conference here because in the 25 square miles that’s represented by this fire station, which is half the size, by the way, of the city of San Francisco, there is one fire truck and there is maybe a cop on duty. And if they’re called to different places we have nothing in this community,” Mayor Bob Filner said at a Nov. 15 press conference at Fire Station 33 in Rancho Bernardo. Determination: Mostly True
