It is so awesome how many people currently care and show love and appreciation to firefighters and first responders when our state is on fire.

How quickly we forget and move on when the incidents are under control. First responders should be recognized as a critical resource to our local and state infrastructure.

All. The. Time.

There are several cities in the Bay Area alone that are considering browning out fire stations, reducing salaries, laying off firefighters, cutting pensions, etc. Some cities and counties have already taken action such as Alameda County Fire closing the Union City station or Kern County defunding 44 firefighter positions this year alone and more to come. Redwood City, Richmond... countless other departments are facing reductions. Cal Fire took a substantial pay cut at the beginning of fire season due to our state’s budget and they are already some of the lowest paid firefighters in our state.

Cutting critical resources around our communities is not ok with me and it shouldn’t be ok with you. Keep that in mind when you are filling out your ballot.

All the city council members, and mayors that WE vote for, are supposed to work for US. When it comes time to vote we need to show our local government what is important to us. We need to vote IN the people who want to protect ALL citizens and property. Please take the time to read up on your local candidates. Vote for the ones who will treat first responders as valuable assets to communities.

We cannot just love first responders when we need them. We need to value them all the time so that they can protect us at all times. Period.

Please vote. Your local vote means just as much as your vote for president.

Much love. XO
