Letter writer challenges Weymouth mayor’s assertion about Fire Department staffing

In the recent article on firefighter staffing in Weymouth (“SouthField’s growth taxes safety fabric,” Dec. 6), Mayor Susan Kay is quoted saying, “Is this town unsafe? Absolutely not. Are we in excess? Absolutely not. We are below the levels that we had in comfy times. I would love to be back to that. I would like to see more on our force.”

I would like to take the opportunity to challenge this claim.
