Letter: Thanks to firefighters for quick response
Edie and I want to express our heartfelt thanks to the North Bennington Fire Department and the Bennington Rural Fire Department for their rapid response to an attic fire above our garage last Tuesday.
We discovered the fire about 12:00 and immediately called 911. Within just a couple of minutes, the firefighters were at our house. They worked swiftly and efficiently.
Thanks to their quick arrival, their focus, in-depth training, and teamwork, they stopped the fire and prevented further damage. They also made sure that any smoke was vented out of the attic and garage. They didn't leave until they were sure that the fire was definitively extinguished and that we were doing OK.
We thank them sincerely, and we'll find a way to thank them more concretely. We can all be proud of our firefighters and secure in the knowledge that they are there quickly and effectively when we need them.
