Family thanks Ghent Fire, dispatch for quick response

-A A +A


On Sept. 16, a lawn-mower fire destroyed most of the interior of our attached garage and its contents. My wife made the discovery of the fire and, immediately, called 911 for assistance. Had it not been for the selfless, quick action of all those rendering aid, as well as the person on the other end of the 911 call, our home also would have been destroyed along with its contents. Personal injury and/or loss of life was more importantly avoided as well.

The Ghent Fire Department members could not have performed in a more professional, compassionate or efficient  manner and, no doubt, “saved the day.”

We are reminded daily, as the repairs progress, how lucky we were to have had the right people there in our time of need.

Our heartfelt thanks to the Ghent Fire Department and to the neighbors and friends who came to offer help and assistance that day and brought our dinner that evening.
