Support fire department
I am writing to urge the citizens of SeaTac to support their Fire Department and their firefighters by voting in favor of the city's Proposition 1, a levy that will improve public safety for everyone.
SeaTac has a special responsibility to provide lifesaving services to tall buildings, which requires special equipment and expertise.
Just last month, I was impressed with the quick and effective response of the SeaTac Rescue and EMS personnel after I called 911 to help a citizen who had fallen from heat stroke near South 188th Street.
The first responders we depend on to save lives and property can be counted on to respond with professional help without much recognition or appreciation. We owe them our support and we should also support their levy request.
