@old fart. If I were to accept your argument, which is not unreasonable, that urban dwellers should not have to pay extra for rural fire-fighting, than surely you agree that rural residents should not have to pay for the high urban crime rate-which costs millions more each year in direct and indirect government expenditures.

There is no reason the people in the larger cities should cover the cost of the people in the mountain areas, if one wish to live in area which will cost much more respone to a fire then they should pay the price! They could do like some and not pay so when something happen and the fire department sets back and watch their home go up in flames and their insurance companies refuses to cover the lost like back east they can set and cry about it!
