Thank you to firefighters for their selflessness

Just wanted to thank all of the volunteer firemen in Duncan and in all of the areas that make up the Cowichan Valley.

Just wanted to thank all of the volunteer firemen in Duncan and in all of the areas that make up the Cowichan Valley.

I think it’s wonderful how each of you put your own life on the line, trying to save others from the ravages of fires. We’re all so grateful for the many, many hours of hard work you put in and for the countless lives you save (not to mention homes).

I know that God is looking down on you so pleased at how you help so many people. It takes a special kind of person to be able to do what you do, and my heart goes out to each of you in deep respect and thankfulness. You’re out there every day helping others who are in dire need. May this letter of recognition make your step a little lighter today.
