I have just received my Advance Notice for the CA Fire Prevention Fee. Why should we have to pay a fee, when a lot of the people in the EID area don’t even have adequate protection? Approx 25 years ago there was a fire coming at my home, and there wasn’t enough water out of the hydrant to supply one fire engine. Why doesn’t EID have to pay a fee, fine or be forced in some way to upgrade the inferior protection system that we should have now? If this fee is to stand, then why doesn’t every property owner share in the cost? A house/building fire anywhere in this state can spread to where state help is needed. The fee is very unfair to those of in only some parts of the state that are reqired to pay it.
