This should not have happened again. DID they take preventative measures after their last TWO fires

This affected many cities and counties. Worse yet: we received No Alerts from The City of Redwood City to shelter in place.

I had a lung operation 3 years ago. The last thing I need is Simms polluting the air I breath.

I hope that the City of Redwood City and San Mateo County stops companies from acting in irresponsible ways and makes the penalties high.

I would say: 3 strikes you're out. This company has had it's time up at bat.

For all of the good it probably won't do, I'll be contacting the Mayor and the City Council.

The damage it does to adults is probably less than the damage it does to children.

It is outrageous. Then I have to hear that the company (Simms) is being "cooperative". Cooperative??!!
