To the editor:
I would like to thank the men and women of the Westside Fire department for the prompt and efficient manner in which they dealt with the fire in Kalamoir Park on Saturday night (July 20).
Without their expertise, this fire had the potential to inflict huge property damage as well as destroy the park.
The professional manner in which they dealt with the fire as well as keeping the residents informed should be commended. They were on site all through the night to monitor the situation as well as making frequent trips to monitor the situation for the following two days.
I had the opportunity to speak with many of the firefighters, day and night, and was impressed with their ability to deal with the fire as well as put my mind at ease.
Again, I would like to express my profound thanks and respect for the Westside Fire department.
