To the Editor,
On Monday, July 2, the Jefferson County Fire Department, along with the Warm Springs Hot Shots and a Crooked River hand crew stopped a fire moving quickly across the hillside, but their rapid deployment and excellent on-site management of the fire put an end to it before it reached our house and other property around it.
We are so thankful for having such a dedicated group of people, many of them volunteers, serving our county in such an important area. We sincerely thank you for your work helping put out the fire last Monday, and all the time and expertise you dedicate to helping keep Jefferson County safe.
Judy and Chip Sweeney
