In recognition of volunteers

To the editor:

I was recently honored to attend the annual Lake Placid Volunteer Fire Department installation of officers and the presentation of the 2013 Service Awards.

While there, I couldn’t help but realize that each of these volunteers is a true hero.

They are everyday heroes!

By that I mean every day they freely respond to all types of emergencies on our behalf. Without fear for their own safety, they protect and keep this community safe.

You always hear what a special place Lake Placid is; well, it takes a very special fire department to stand guard over all we enjoy.

We can all rest assured that a very special group of trained and caring fire department personnel are always ready to respond.

Please, at every opportunity, show them your support. Ask all our elected representatives to fully support them, and when possible, say “thank you” to one of our volunteer heroes.

Respectfully submitted,

James E. Morganson
