LETTERS: Support for fire victims

Editor: Thanks to White Rock Fire Department for responding fast to a serious fire in our building

Editor:

Thanks to White Rock Fire Chief Phil Lemire and the White Rock Fire Department for responding so fast to a serious fire in our building on Nov. 28 (Fire ‘not suspicious,’ Dec. 1). Their quick actions and expertise alleviated what could have been a much more disastrous fire.

Also, thanks to the White Rock RCMP for helping to clear out the building and assisting the elderly who where not able to get out on their own and for providing direction and comfort. Thanks to director of recreation and culture Eric Stepura and his staff from the city’s emergency response team for coming to the aid of the residents.

And a special thanks to the residents of the Beverley, who opened up their doors with kindness and hospitality.

Garry Wolgemuth, White Rock
