A report released last month notes some of the improvements, but also criticizes the county for not spending more on fire resources.
The report from the National University System Institute for Policy Research found San Diego County spends less per person on fire resources than Orange and Los Angeles counties.
While agencies in Orange County spent $190 per person and Los Angeles County spent $219 per capita, San Diego County agencies spent $153.75 per capita.
