To the editor:
On Aug. 19 the Lake Placid Volunteer Fire Department, Lake Placid village police, Lake Placid Volunteer Ambulance Service, Saranac Lake Volunteer Fire Department (mutual aid) and the New York State Police responded to an electrical fire at my residence in Lake Placid. I would like to take the time to say thank you to these agencies. If it wasn’t for their immediate response and quick action on this day, the fire I had could have been much more devastating. It is very comforting to know that when people are in need of assistance, these agencies take time out of their day to respond and assist you in any manner necessary.
I can tell you that the Lake Placid police, with the assistance of NYSP, were at my residence in less than a minute and that the fire department was there and in operation in less than three minutes. We are very lucky to have all of these services in our area.
Again, thank you to all of the emergency services that serve this area.
