During a recent council meeting I expressed my concerns with this exact situation and requested that County Fire leave one engine and crew to protect the City of Needles. We pay $ 600,000 for fire protection and rely on other Fire Agencies to protect us so County Fire can respond and protect the outlining rural areas.
