Outstanding emergency response

Dear Editor:

The evening of July 15 at about 11:45 I was outside and in the distance I saw a fluctuating red light. Examining closer, there were sparks and glowing wires. There are acres of dried grass and plants below so I immediately called DMEA. The message was to call 911.

Within 15 minutes there were probably 12 emergency vehicles and twice as many personnel. Problem -- a cracked cable probably by lightning. The firemen put the fire out and DMEA replaced the equipment.

Thank you, ladies and gentlemen. Your professional, polite, dedicated service possibly prevented a disaster. We in Delta County are blessed to have exceptional emergency response and great people like Doug Fritz, chief.
