Chief Speranza; This afternoon a larger incident was averted. A room and content fire was held to the room by not only the quick dispatch and response. knockdown of the fire was rapid and our members did an excellent job. But more importantly the department acknowledges the outstanding efforts of Sgt Veenema, officers Flynn and Daily for rescuing a helpless trapped dog from this fire. If it was not for thier quick actions in removing the dog fate would have had tragedy. We thank them! We also wish to thank neighbor’s for caring enough and reacting in calling the FD.
