WIXT-TV examines how utility cutbacks of overnight emergency personnel effect response times to emergencies. "The story started at the newsroom police scanner. For months we had noticed that emergency personnel were frequently held up as they waited for utility crews to shut down power or turn off gas. In checking back, we found several instances (one where an entire factory burned to the ground) where fire chiefs believed the losses were attributable to utility actions."
