That is EXACTLY what some areas of Arizona are dealing with. Many areas fire departments there are owed hundreds of thousands of dollars by local governments and are rrsponding to calls on a , quote, "case by case basis". Imagine if you called the fire depafrtment and said, "Get here quick! Windsor Green Apartments are on fire!!!". And imagine the dispatcher responding by saying,"Sorry, but your area is one of those we no longer respond tto because of delinquent funding of our operation directly related to your area". That could easily be reality here if we are not pro-active and allow a proposed tax increase here to support our fire fighting capabilities. Think hard about it.
