    We have them to respond to events like this one. They are the reason that loss of life is as low as it is. Simple as that.
    They are there before, during and after working their asses off to mitigate and clean up after the event.
    They require training, the best equipment, and proper funding to achieve the mission they face, which can best be described as "the general welfare" of all our citizens.
    The choice is stark.
    A man who understands and leads and provides these outstanding people the tools and training they need.
    OR
    A man who will look for a way to profit from the misfortune of others.
    It really is that simple. Anyone who tells you any different is a liar. Push comes to shove the past actions and behaviors are incredibly strong indicators of future performance and leadership choices.
    You really are choosing your fate as well as the fate of future generations this election. Chose wisely.
