Many years ago, you came to my block to put my car fire out. You guys were quick, and very good at your jobs. I was in a total panick when the leaves underneath my car caught fire. On top of that , my gas tank was filled, and I was parked between 2 cars and a tree behind me. You guys showed up quickly, put my car out, which was a total lose. I want to thank you so much for saving others cars, and the block from a total nightmare. You guys rock. I will always be in your corner. I hope the best for you, and hope you all come home safe.God bless you guys.

Thank you for your quick response to fires in Reading. I appreciate that you are all well trained for what I consider a challenging job. I'm glad I haven't forgot feel a door stay low when there's smoke, stop. drop & roll running if a person is on fire does no good...I learned in Los Angeles where I'm from..... (Fire Burns. Smoke Kills) this is a blog post UPDATED FEB 22, 2014 when I attended the LAUSD (Los Angeles Unified School District I learned Practice GET LOW AND GO. I'm grateful in the Reading area I've heard this repeated my daughters have been through safe houses in Reading/Berks.....I hope you receive many blessing & I hope you stay safe bottom line is you risk your lives to save others you are angels on earth!

I want to thank the Firemen and EMS crew for the delivery of my baby girl Madyson on March 24, 2014. Because of all of you, my baby girl and I are doing well. We couldn't make it to hospital on time, and the only thing to do was to call for help. My family and I are very greatfull to all of you who came to my house to help.

I am Ronnie's niece. Chris's daughter. I never got to meet Uncle Ronnie and that saddens me. I have 2 wonderful boys that I would loved to have met him as well. I learned of his condition just a little while ago and wish I would have had more time. I pray for his family and I am glad he is at peace. Whether we have met or not we were still family and I'll always remember the stories I was told. God bless.
