To the editor,
This past weekend members of the department experienced some of the greatest challenges the East Providence Fire Department has faced in many years.
The combination of blizzard-like weather conditions, long continuous hours, coupled with a very high call/response volume including two structure fires within an eight hour period, required members of the department to unselfishly serve the citizens of the city.
Words cannot express the true dedication that each member displayed during the past weekend. Each and every member who worked went over and above what any fire chief would expect or hope for.
I personally would like to thank all of them for their hard work and perseverance. Great job!
