Sawyerville Vol­un­teer Fire Depart­ment

Sherbrooke Record - - BROME COUNTY -

On Au­gust 20, 1970, our fam­ily home burned to the ground. I be­ing a teenager, never re­ally ap­pre­ci­ated the ef­fort that the Sawyerville Vol­un­teer Fire Depart­ment put into fight­ing that fire.

Fast for­ward to 1999, when I was in­vited to join that same fire depart­ment. With the hours of train­ing and work­ing to­gether, one soon re­al­izes the ef­fort and com­mit­ment it takes to be a fire­fighter/first re­spon­der. The trust­ing friend­ships de­vel­oped on these teams is spe­cial and ever­last­ing.

Thank you to those who fought the fire back in 1970 and to all who con­tinue to do so to­day.

Good luck and be safe.

Craig Mcbur­ney Cook­shire-ea­ton Fire­fighter/first Re­spon­der Sawyerville Sta­tion 1999-2010
