Letter to the editor: In appreciation of the Beacon Falls Fire Department

We are writing to express our appreciation for the outstanding work of the Beacon Falls Fire Department.

March 7, we contacted the Fire Department to assist with basement flooding. Within 15 minutes fire personnel arrived and skillfully and pleasantly went about their work pumping out the water to a safe level before heading off to the next resident in need.

We personally witnessed fire staff returning several times throughout the day to check back with neighbors and to assist elderly residents during this flooding event.

During a disaster it is extremely reassuring to know that we are fortunate to live in a community with such a dedicated and competent team of Volunteer Fire Department professionals.

Thank you for your helpful assistance to our family and for all that you do for the Town of Beacon Falls.

With sincere gratitude,

Barbara and Diane Betkoski
