A big thank you to the firefighter who helped me when I was in town today, so my daughter could take her SAT at her cyber school headquarters. Our home is more than an hour away, and I didn't know anybody in this town. On the suggestion of my daughter's teacher, I walked across the street and got help from this wonderful person. I'm sorry I didn't catch your name, thank you again! Your help on such a cold windy day was very much appreciated.
Have a wonderful day.

A belated Thank you to all who came to the accident scene 6/17/15 (my first major accident). I appreciate Tommy especially keeping me calm, and Glenn who let Paul know I was okay. The ambulance EMTs were awesome! You all do a job I wouldn't be able to do. Thank you for serving our community.

I just wanted to take a moment to thank the fire men on duty today ( 11/14/14) for taking the time to help me out. I drove to work today and noticed that my wedding ring was becoming extremely stuck on my finger, as the hours grew on here at work the swelling became unbearable and the ring would not budge. It was cutting into my finger badly and I became very upset. I had tried everything to remove the ring to no avail. I looked online and found the number of the fire department here in Downingtown. I was able to go right down the street, and was immediately helped by two gentlemen. The gentleman who cut the ring off was extremely careful and kind, and was even able to salvage it. It might be something small, but it meant the world to me. I was panicked and the gentlemen were extremely helpful, and went above and beyond with excellent service. I can't thank you both enough.

Kristin Welcome

Yesterday, Jan. 1st, I had the sickening experience of watching my dear neighbors across the street get burned out of their home. This was the fourth major house fire within walking distance since we moved here nine years ago.My face was soaked with tears as I stood in my front yard watching firemen from four different townships, running into,and on top of the the burning structure. I quickly counted 45 firemen, and new there was probably that many more in tankers and trucks that couldn't get any closer. I'm a Vietnam combat veteran, and as I watched these brave men (and women) --- all "VOLUNTEERS", I realized I was seeing brothers and sisters "IN UNIFORM", charging into battle, against an enemy that was trying to destroy their friends and neighbors, their homeland. I thought of my own experiences. Then I thought of 9/11, and the sacrifices they made, and fully understood for the first time that our nations firemen (and women), and our law enforcement teams are our everyday unspoken, and mostly unrecognized TRUE HEROES. I wanted to embrace and thank each one of them. Today, as I look out my front window at my neighbors burned house, I know that ONLY because about 90 selfless men and women dropped whatever they were doing, and got here quickly, the family photo's, records, and other precious items were saved. From all of us on Fox Chase Drive, and the surrounding neighbors, --- THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR ALL YOU DO !!!!

It seems like a lifetime since I was a volunteer at Station 46. I have wonderful memories hanging with the boys; Vince, Beau, Derek, Mike, Chris, and Cathy, Lori and Terry. I also took from my experiences there to lead me on my career path. Congratulations on the new house and keep up the good work!

Minquas Team,

The years I served as a Fire Fighter, and EMT truly developed me into the man I am today. I have serve my country all over the world as a Sailor, and have worked with some amazing people, but the leaders of my youth (men and women of Minquas Fire Department) will always have a special place in my heart. There isn't a day that has gone by in the last 19 years that I haven't missed serving with you all. Thank you for your selfless commitment!

Very respectfully,

To Minquas EMS, Thank you for providing EMS coverage for our 4th annual Kids Fest. We appreciate the time and effort of your crew in helping make our Fest a huge success. We had 1500 kids and their parents at the event Thankfully we did not have an emergency requiring your help. The EMS crew was great! we appreciated your willingness to stay at the park and be part of our big day. Without the help of services like yourself our Kids Fest could not be as great as success as it is. Once again thanks for the help in making our day a huge Hit!!!! Chief 49

I am writing to thank you for your services. I have been a resident of Downingtown for about 7 years, but will be moving out of the borough in the coming weeks. Thankfully I have not required your services at my home. You may know my 2-year-old son, Jason. He loves fire trucks and was a fireman for Halloween. Because we live nearby, we frequently walk to see the trucks when the weather is nice (sometimes more than one time per day). Everyone we have encountered at Minquas has been very friendly and kind. Jason was invited in to sit in the truck a number of times, has toured the station, and has received a fire hat, coloring book, etc. from Minquas. He loved it. I know he will be sad that we will no longer be able to walk to see the fire trucks. I wanted to thank you not only for your service to the community but also for your hospitality toward my son. I hope you have a safe and happy holiday!

Today, 12/1 your Ambulance staff responded to our call to help my mother back to her wheel chair after a fall in our garage. Your staff was professional, patient, understanding and caring. They helped my mother back to her wheel chair and made sure she was ok. The Minquas Ambulance staff has been at our house 2 other times to take my mother to the hospital for heart attack and for a fall down stairs and provided service beyond our expectations. Thank you so much! The McNelis Family

My husband and I would like to thank you all for responding so quickly to our call on Sunday evening, March 1st. We are very greatful that it turned out to be nothing but a few sparks out of our chimney. It was very reassuring should a time come that it is a real out of control fire that we have such a dedicated and prompt response team.

Thanks again and keep up the good work.

Regards,
The Mattis Family

I truly appreciate the professionalism and care you showed in responding to my motorcycle accident. Along with DPD and a very nice couple I never got the names of, you guys helped me through one of the scariest moments of my life. I'm still riding today and not a day goes by that I am not thankful for your response two years ago. I will never forget it.
