MDA Director Thanks Madison FirefightersMar 29th, 2011 | By Submitted | Category: Letters To The Editor
For all they do
In this drought season when we rely on our firefighters to protect life and property, I would like to take a moment to thank the Madison Professional Firefighters.
The firefighters who serve the Northwest Florida provide a valuable service to its residents, not only through fighting fires but also emergency medical care, assistance in hazardous weather, carbon monoxide response and, yes, the occasional citizen locked out of their car. I’m humbled by the stories of countless Firefighters that risks their own lives for the citizens of Madison.
I am most thankful for the donation of their time and effort to help raise money to provide help and hope to the individuals in Northwest Florida affected by muscle disease. The funds raised through their Fill the Boot campaign provide services such as specialized clinics, repairs and loans of medical equipment and MDA Summer Camp, as well as funding worldwide research to find treatments and cures for the 43 neuromuscular diseases that fall under MDA’s umbrella.
I urge everyone to thank the firefighters for all they do for the residents of Northwest Florida.
