Time was, the Fire Department responded only to fires. Today, 67% of Portland Fire & Rescue's calls are Emergency Medical Services (EMS) related -- heart attack, etc. Over time, to address a growing need, society has decided that the scope and mission of PF&R needed to be expanded.
Is time that the scope and mission of Portland Police Department gets expanded so that they DO become the first responders to mental health calls because PPD are the folks on the street?
