Where are the volunteers?

To the Editor,

I read the letter to the editor dated March 17 from Rod Summers.

He was asking how would the city be able to fund five firefighters. I read the news article on Tuesday following the council meeting where firefighters showed up in force.

I realize we need more firefighters, so why don’t we go back to the volunteer system that served the city so well?

Could someone please answer that for me?
