Letter: Kudos to the Chester Fire Department

To the editor:

At the height of Hurricane Sandy, the apple tree in our fron yard blew down, blocking access to Spring Street. As instructed by the Chester town website, we called the Fire Department. They were just amazing — they arrived in less than five minutes and in driving rain and fierce wind cleared the road in under ten minutes.

Everybody should take a minute to thank a firefighter today. I’m so grateful to them for what they do for us all at great personal risk.

Oh, and sending a donation wouldn’t hurt if you can do it.  We sure will be.

Thanks again to the great folks of the Chester squad!
