Here's another story of a homeowner who didn't pay the subscription fee for fire protection, believing that, if he had a fire, the fire department would come anyway.

He was wrong.

This follows the same line of thinking of districts who shut down their departments, believing that, if they needed fire protection, they could rely on mutual aid.

What is wrong with that thinking?

I just wish there was a way to can all these discussions together and if and when such an event occurs in the future and a similar response is done....we can bring these discussions back out to show that it was the choice of the people to have such a service and that there is no obligation to protect property of people who refuse to pay for subscriptions.

It would save a ton of headaches vs repeating all this stuff, over and over again for those who claim morality over reality.
