ANNE ARUNDEL COUNTY, Md. — A lack of staffing at three Anne Arundel County fire stations is increasing homeowners' insurance rates and putting the public at risk, according to two county councilmen.
Councilmen Jamie Benoit, D-Crownsville, and Jerry Walker, R-Gambrills, who represent the Herald Harbor, Maryland City and Galesville communities, are vowing to push for more fire personnel in the coming budget cycle.
