    Thank you seems too little of a reward . It wasn’t my house, I was not affected directly. But I benefit from knowing that if it was my emergency the efforts of the men and women in all the lambton communities that step forward to answer the call will be there for me too. Even in the frigid cold, blistering summer or pouring rain. Thank you to volunteer firefighters for providing excellent service and really, your not just saving from harm and losses. I think we too easily forget that volunteer firefighters save the communities in providing a much lower cost of protection allowing for communities to have more funds for infrastructure and leisure – thank you !
