Rob Jacobs: Kudos to Church Park firefighters
October 12, 2010
To all of the firefighters battling the Church Park fire: THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU!
It was most impressive Sunday afternoon to see just how quickly the firefighters got a handle on a very bad situation. The forest is tinder dry, the terrain is steep, and access to the area is limited. Then, the wind started to blow.
Because of their efforts not a single residence was lost to the blaze. And to think, most of the people on the fire line are volunteers.
So the next time you see members of one of Grand County’s fire departments holding out their boots for donations, remember the Church Park Fire. I most certainly will. Once again, thank you for saving our homes.
