Criticism of storm response unfair

I find the comment on ("Stormy response from City crews", Auburn Reporter, Jan. 27) quite unfair.

The City's Emergency Management Division offers frequent CERT (Community Emergency Response Team) classes to residents in order to be prepared and able to help in different emergency situations including earthquakes.

As far as being Comcast bundled, everyone can purchase a land-line phone that does not require being plugged into electricity. They come in handy when the power goes out.

Perhaps the letter writer should get more involved. Sometimes we need to be able to help ourselves, rather than blame others. And yes, there were restaurants open in Auburn.
