To the Valley News:
The Town of Lewis Fire Department members who were called out numerous times as a result of the damage caused by Hurricane Irene are to be commended for their service to this community. Also, beyond the emergency calls they responded to, they spent many hours in helping the citizens of our town and neighboring communities with cellar pump-outs, use of portable generators, etc. They also visited residents to make sure they were okay and to see if any needed any assistance.
We are also grateful to other community volunteers who assisted in helping during this time of need.
The Town of Lewis Fire District Board of Commissioners wishes to thank these volunteers for their service as we are sure many of the town residents do also.
Board of Commissioners, Town of Lewis Fire District
