Ask a Firefighter Series: A Special Thanks
Email Print RSS Facebook Twitter RSS

By Deputy Chief Jason Simmons
June 7, 2020

Be sure to check out Captain Perkins latest newspaper article which thanks our local communities and organizations for all their patience and support during the difficult times we have all faced recently.

Watch Hill Firefighters would like to acknowledge the support and generosity that was demonstrated so many times during the past few months. It is an honor to be a firefighter, but it is a greater honor to receive the genuine support and appreciation that has been repeatedly exhibited by the members of our communities.

Every single card, every single letter, every single donation was deeply appreciated. To be honest, many local firefighters and emergency medical technicians were overwhelmed by the outpouring of generosity and support. It was community spirit at its best and a clear sign that Washington County is a wonderful place to live and work.

Thank you for your support!

o recognize all the donors in this column would be impossible, but the exemplary efforts of a few need to be mentioned. We are especially grateful to our friends at Sons of Liberty Distillery, Grey Sail Brewery, and the University of Rhode Island who produced and donated hundreds of gallons of hand sanitizer. The Lacerta Group Inc. created and donated hundreds of protective face shields, and US Extruders, who secured and donated much-needed infrared thermometers. Sweenor Builders constructed and donated plexiglass aerosol intubation boxes.

In addition, our friends at the Rhode Island Disaster Medical Assistance Team and Medical Reserve Corps coordinated thousands of community donations of masks, gloves, and other personal protective supplies, which were quickly sorted and redistributed to the local fire and EMS departments.
