7/8/03 Attention WFD Members

     I received an email from a civilian from Waterbury who wanted to thank the guys on a job well done Saturday July 5, 2003. I forwarded the email to the Chief and also wanted to share it with my readers:

Monday, July 7, 2003 at 07:52:34
Name: Mary Jane Fernandez
Department: Waterbury Fire Dept
State: Connecticut

Comments: On July 5th there was a fire at 176 Easton Ave in Waterbury, CT. I am the owner of the house next door at 172 Easton Ave. I am writing because I would like to extend my heartfelt thank you to all the firefighters that were here to extinguish the fire. If not for their quick response and hard work my house would have also burnt. My house received fire damage from the heat but nothing compared to what it could have been. So if you can, maybe you can forward this email to the proper people with my gratitude. I always worry about fire because I care for my 86-year-old mother who has Alzheimer's and doesn't walk. I worry about getting her and my dogs out in case of fire because we are on the second floor. That's another reason I was so glad the fire dept came so quickly. Again I say thank you to all the firefighters for their dedication.

Sincerely and always grateful
Mary Jane Fernandez
