"Firefighters arriving late," is an investigation into the Tucson Fire Department and their lack of consistency in acceptable emergency response times. Though the national standard is five minutes or less, the TFD only meets that standard about half the time. The slowest response time usually occur in the fastest-growing area of Tucson, and the fire department is too underfunded to keep up with the growing population. Using a number of different databases from the local fire department, as well as the National Fire Protection Association, Branan was able to analyze the problem and discover that Tucson isn't the only fire department unable to meet national standards.
