Petaluma Argus-Courier Editorial: A good way to share fire resources

The recent agreement calling for Petaluma Fire Chief Leonard Thompson to continue providing part-time oversight to the Rancho Adobe Fire District is a win for the city of Petaluma and the 25,000 people living in Penngrove, Cotati and the unincorporated area north of town. The three-year agreement offers enhanced public safety services, operational efficiencies and fiscal savings, and is exactly the kind of innovative and sensible practice necessary in this era of scarce public resources.
