I would like to publicly thank the Kansas City and South Platte fire departments and remind everyone what superb service our firefighters provide while risking their lives in many situations.
Firefighters have come to my aid twice within the past few months. Once was for a medical emergency, and the other was for a feline rescue. These two situations were extreme opposites in emergency value, but in each case the firefighters were very helpful and unfailingly kind.
We hear so much about budget-tightening and cost-cutting. Let’s all hope that our cities and counties can find ways around having our firefighters make sacrifices when they deserve so much.
