An interview with a local fireman took place in the 77318-zip code. His thoughts regarding the community’s health concerns were the amount of lower class and elderly people with morbid illnesses. Even though there are many doctor’s offices in town, the elderly have difficulty getting to their appointments and the lower class population cannot afford to seek health care. According to fireman B.K., handful of calls are received because the elderly have run out of their medication or they are not feeling well (personal communication July 1, 2019) B.K. thinks that many of the elderly don’t have family that they can rely on for help to get to their appointments. He says that many of the lower- class population call because they know they can receive services and know they don’t have to pay for it.
