Our VFDs are invaluable

On April 5, 2014, our rural home on Hope Hill Road caught fire in the early morning. We attempted to fight the fire but needed to call the Lubeck VFD. They responded within 10-15 minutes and quickly assessed the fire and extinguished it. Their rapid response and professional actions doubtlessly saved our home from burning to the ground. We wish to thank them and the community that supports their service.

I understand that there are 500,000 full-time firemen and 1 million volunteer firefighters. It’s not hard to see who fights the majority of fires in the USA. Thank you gentlemen for your service.
