FACT CHECK — Caldwell: Honolulu Has 43 Fire Stations, 25 EMS Stations
Former Acting Mayor Kirk Caldwell explained his support for the merger.
"We have 43 fire stations and 25 EMS stations," said Caldwell in a rebuttal to former Gov. Ben Cayetano. "We have more ambulances than that. And we can put them into fire stations close to where we live, so you can get them to people who are in need of care, healthcare, and taken to hospitals. This is critical for me. And it's going to save money..."
Are Caldwell's numbers correct?
