First responders deserve thanks

Alan Holt thanks Ladysmith firefighters and RCMP members for their professionalism in responding to a tragic fire.

Editor:

The fire on Pictou was a very tragic sequence of events, but as a neighbour, it brought it home all the more to me.

I would like to thank the Ladysmith Fire Dept. volunteers who responded to the fire. They handled the situation in a professional and expedient manner with the solemnity that was required with the loss of two of our neighbours that was for all of us standing there a heady reminder that life is a fragile thing. The speed in which they brought the raging fire under control and prevented its spread was heroic to say the least.

I would also like to commend the RCMP responders, as they handled the situation both during the fire and the day after in containing the area in a very responsible manner and also the RCMP care workers for their diligence the day after to the neighbours and family of this traumatic event and their emotional support.
