A couple of months ago I mentioned the great people at home we have that support us and help us do what we do , this month I would like to mention some people we team up with many times, particularly on EMS calls, and often times go unnoticed, and that is our partners in public safety at the Bethel Police department. From the fire side of our operations where crowd or traffic control is needed, to the EMS side where they ensure our crews safety, as well as being qualified first responders, the Bethel Police department are always there to help. Being part of the first responder family that serves Bethel I can definitely say we are fortunate to have them, and appreciate the work they do.
From all of the members at The Bethel Fire department, we would like to wish you and your family a safe and Happy Thanksgiving !!
