I wish the people of San Diego new the kind of very competent selfless heroes they have working for the San Diego fire department. If they did they would not be taking away the pension benefits for new employees. I had the privledge of attending an award ceremony a few years ago where fire employees and some citizens were being awarded for saving lives that year. I was amazed at the stories where our firefighters put their lives on the line. Some of the stories seemed like they were straight out of a Hollywood movie. I will admit to you that my Dad retired from the fire department so I know I'm somewhat biased. I work for lawenforcement and of course I know of the heroes we have protecting us from the bad guys. People never think they'll need a firefighter to help them, but they are always worried about the criminals. Please don't vote to take away pensions from our firefighter heroes.
