Thanks to firefighters

First and foremost, we would like to thank the Jamestown Fire Department for its swift arrival at our garage fire on June 23. My husband and I were out of state in New York City at the time, and received a call from our neighbor, Kevin Lloyd, informing us of the lightning storm and that our garage was on fire. Although we lost the entire garage and car, without the fire department’s quick action, we would have lost our house also.

We are so fortunate to live in a community that has such a dedicated fire department. Members volunteer their time on Thursday nights to do drills and take many courses to keep on top of new techniques. We cannot thank them enough for their timely arrival and professional action that saved our home. The outpouring of concern and offers of help from our friends and neighbors of Jamestown has been overwhelming. It has reminded us of how fortunate we are to live in such a special community.
