Letter to the Editor:

“It only takes a spark to get a fire burning…” How very true. While doing work recently at our camp, we witnessed how quickly a fire can spread out of control. We want to thank the volunteer fire departments of Middlebourne, Shirley, and Alma for responding promptly and being well-prepared.

Thankfully, our fire was quickly extinguished, but the experience gave us a renewed appreciation of the very important services our volunteers in the fire departments and EMS provide to our communities.

Putting aside personal schedules, family and leisure time, they unselfishly respond to our calls-never knowing what they may encounter.

Thanks to all of you, the volunteers of Tyler County, for your commitment to the health and safety of our communities. May God bless each of you and keep you safe.

Leeman and Susan Mason
