Reader recognizes the first to respond

Dear Editor,

The firefighters, police and all other first responders should be commended for their actions at the fire (last) Sunday morning (in Pomeroy). They train as much as possible and are available all the time for such emergencies. Although they are all from small departments, they pulled together as one fighting unit to keep the citizens of Pomeroy safe and to keep the surrounding properties from total destruction.
