Montville fire, police there to help
To the Editor:
The March 13 storm blew a giant pine tree down on our house taking electric wires with it. Live wires lay arching on our porch roof for 18 hours until Jersey Central Power & Light arrived.
During those long, terrifying hours, the heroic firefighters of the Pine Brook Fire Department were our angels watching over our house until they knew we were out of danger. I especially want to thank Assistant Chief Jim Schmitt, Rocky Trifari and Don Welter for staying all night into Sunday. Thank you to all the firefighters who responded to our need. Thank you also to Montville police for watching our house while it was without power and empty. We really are blessed to live in a town with such brave and competent professionals who responded without hesitation.
