  • Our Volunteers Are Protecting Us … Who’s Protecting Them?

    To the Editor:

    Our town is blessed with five volunteer fire departments, as well as a volunteer ambulance and a volunteer dive team.  Some of you may not realize that these volunteers are on call 24/7 . When you need them, they are there at the scene of an accident, at your home, responding to fires, medical emergencies and water rescues, among other scenarios.  At a time when you are most likely in the most vulnerable, stressed and emotional state, they are calmly and efficiently at your side.
