Kudos to Fire Service

August 10, 2011

Dear Sir,

In all of the recent articles that have appeared in your paper regarding the HWP fire, I have not noticed anything about the professional firefighters in the Bermuda Fire Service. It appears to me that the reason the fire was contained to one building was as a result of what our firefighters did. It always amazes me to see brave individuals put on fire fighting apparatus and run into harms way.

As a trustee of the Bermuda End to End I had the opportunity this year to meet a group of young men that were in training for the Fire Service. These young men raised money by doing a relay race carrying schoolchildren on a stretcher along the End to End route to Dockyard. They raised money for local charities and now I see they are again supporting their Island with their heroic efforts. Well done!
