Editor, the Advocate:
On June 30, when we had the big grass fire in DaCosta, I was able to see just how much our volunteers and paid departments are able to do when the chips are down.
If we hadn't been given the help from all the different departments, there could have been a real problem when the wind changed to the east. Most of DaCosta could have been ruined.
The help from the Victoria Fire Department and the volunteer fire departments with water and other aid - plus helping with overheating of members - and all the help from our area people can't be imagined.
In all of my years as part of the volunteer fire department, I haven't ever seen such cooperation. Thank you one and all for all the help!
Cliff Townsend and all the volunteers, Victoria
