The Camelback and Piestewa Peak trails are already difficult and not for the faint of heart. When you add in extreme heat, it’s a recipe for disaster for everyone involved. </div> <div> <br> </div> <div>When a rescue needs to take place, it can take anywhere between 12 to 16 firefighters in full gear to do a rescue up one of these mountains. The city is extremely short on paramedics and every time there is a mountain rescue, we are pulling them away from other critical calls. </div> <div> <br> </div> <div>To put this into perspective, the City of Phoenix is 517 square miles total. We only have 1,586 sworn firefighters to provide service to our massive city. </div> <div> <br> </div> <div>This pilot program is a great first step, but more needs to be done. I will be strongly advocating to make this a permanent practice moving ahead.”​<br><br></div> </html></div>https://www.phoenix.gov/district6Newsdistrict-6District 6SalDiCiccio

Today's vote was not about acting for accountability or transparency, but about handing over unlimited power to hate groups. <br><br>The defund the police movement is the real deal here in Phoenix. The vast majority of the community supports the police versus this small group of 100 people. These radical anti-police protesters will not stop until they have destroyed the foundations of law and order in our city.<br><span style="background-color:window;color:windowtext;font-size:10pt;"><br>I am so angry and embarrassed for our hardworking police officers, who put their lives on the line every day to protect us.
