on taxes, and safety, and mutual aid

And it's not that I live in a rural area-- in fact, I live in one of the top 10 largest cities in TN-- but it is a place that is vehemently anti-large government and anti-tax. And it's been very interesting to see, up close and personal, what that actually means for fire and rescue and other emergency services.
