LETTER: Sincere thanks to Nelson police, fire department and Fortis

From reader Howie Ross...

A couple of days ago we had an incident at our home that required emergency responders to attend. Within minutes of calling 911, the police department, the fire department, and Fortis arrived, immediately assessed the situation, launched into action and dealt with the emergency. Even though it’s rare that any of us actually need emergency services, it’s sure great to know that we have these professionals ready to serve.

They were efficient and dedicated to everyone’s well-being. It was a well-oiled machine and seeing the coordination between departments was great to witness, especially when it was my safety and home, as well as the safety of my neighbours and their homes.

They are truly Nelson’s finest professional, courteous and effective. So, a heartfelt thank you to our essential service providers.

Howie Ross
