Lower Township - Instead of building a pool, Lower Township needs to tackle the issue concerning our local emergency response agencies. This has nothing to do with the dedication of our local volunteers or EMS, but the reality that Lower EMS can't handle their call volume with the limited personnel they have and the fire departments have a declining volunteer pool. To help the volunteer pool, the township/MUA should hire firemen who apply for public works positions and allow them to respond instead of political buddies who live outside the township. Pay EMS more than minimum wage.
