Parksville fire department rocks

After an incident at my home early on the morning of Oct. 19 my respect for our firefighters has only increased.

I have always had great respect for the men and women firefighters in our community but after an incident at my home early on the morning of Oct. 19 that respect has only increased.

There is nothing more scary than waking up and seeing flames rise over your home. After calling 911, I waited outside for the firefighters to appear which they did within minutes and what a wonderful sight they were.

The professionalism they showed in quickly extinguishing the fire and the consideration they gave me and my family is a memory I will never forget. My hat goes off to the Parksville Volunteer Fire Department — you folks rock. Forever grateful.
