Editor, the Advocate:
We appreciate the response of the Tivoli, Austwell and Refugio volunteer fire departments to a trailer house fire in Tivoli on Aug. 22. Their efforts helped save our building adjacent to the trailer fire. We were fortunate this time as were the neighbors across the street from the fire. We had some fire damage, but it could have been worse.
These volunteers give from their hearts. Their families also need a great big thank you for allowing their family members to give of their time.
Anytime you see flashing lights or hear sirens, say a prayer for the firefighters, law enforcement and emergency medical personnel. They are never sure what situation they will encounter when called out. Never take these people for granted.
Thanks again to anyone who helped with the fire. We don't want to leave anyone out.
Richard and Linda Williams, Port Lavaca
