Happy 4th From The FD

The 4th of July is not exactly a greeting-card holiday.

But the Westport Fire Department sent this photo — and best wishes — to the town today:

Westport Fire Department

Members of Platoon pose in traditional military green fire t-shirts. They show the department’s patriotism — and honor its many members who are military veterans.

The note says: “The Westport Fire Department asks all citizens to remember in your thoughts and prayers your public servants this 4th of July. Likewise, the members of Platoon 1, who are on duty this July 4th, wish all citizens a safe and blessed holiday.”

Thanks to Platoon 1 — and all of our firefighters — for all they do, for all of us.

    Thanks Platoon 1 for this photo and giving up your holiday to work. I noticed A/C Conklin is in the photo. Has he decided to come back from retirement? LOL

    Thanks for always being there to serve our community. Several years ago I needed your help, and you were absolutely the greatest – getting the situation under control (was not serious) and calming me down. Even though I no longer am able to live in WP – it’s nice to know the town is still very well protected!!!
