Thank you to Oneonta firefighters

We would like to express our sincere gratitude to the Oneonta firefighters who helped contain the recent wildfires near Whited Lake. Although our home was never in immediate danger, it was too close for comfort.

The winds may have changed in our favor, but our firefighters knew how to take advantage of it, how backfires would react in given conditions and how to negotiate their equipment in the wooded areas.

Thanks doesn’t seem to do justice, but it is the only word we have. We just know the pride and appreciation that goes behind it. Your dedication and valiant efforts will not be forgotten.

Tim and Judy McGuire
