For the month of October, the East Contra Costa Fire Protection District ran a total of 537 calls for service with an average response time of 7:11 minutes. This was an increase from September where their response time was 6:36.

The increase of response time appears to be more of a reflection on location of major incidents as opposed to the district. If you recall, you had a large residential fire destroying a million dollar home in Discovery Bay, a commercial fire at Hook Line & Sinker on Bethel Island, several small vegetation fires along Marsh Creek Road, along with a deadly crash in Byron.

  1. Uh, how exactly is going from 7:36 to 7:11 an increase? If the response is less time on average, isn’t that a decrease in response time? Or is this more of that new math I’ve heard about?

    Or, would using the word “decrease” diminish the overall tone and message that needs to be spun?

    Are we doing better or worse since the knuckle-head voters out here denied the extra $1.50 per month the increase in taxes would have cost us? What’s the deal?

  2. @Wood. Suggest you read the staff report.

    • Joe, you’re right, but the original posting Burk put up had 7:36. He changed it after my posting. I’d prove it, but I can’t post screen shots here. That was my question, how is going from 7:36 to 7:11 an increase. Now that the story has been corrected, you are correct.

  3. @Woody,

    Are you just stupid or trying to ruffle feathers so you can get the thread going with some gossip on here? The only knuckle-head is in your mirror. You must live in DB with the rest of the kooks.

    • No, that would be you. DB or Knightsen (what’s the difference right?) Your still are the biggest and most well known kook. Denial is a birch! Keep posting dummy.

  4. So big bro I know you thrive on attention but maybe you think that you could stop stealing drugs and come back to the real world? The whole family has been trying to help you. I know you were the product of a rape from the escaped mental dude. Mom told me when you turned 11 last year.
