Firefighters driving trucks and engines are (already) challenged with 90 degree intersections -- and we have too many accidents as it is," Fire Marshal Barbara Schultheis wrote. "We don't need more challenges." The Fire Marshall worries about the turning radius of fire trucks and the angled street intersections planned for Treasure Island in a recent email to the Planning Commission. She also cites the reduced head-turning mobility of older drivers. And then is refuted by various parties. We recommend extensive sprinkler systems and smaller fire trucks. Problem solved.
