"On June 1st, 2014 I was in a tragic ATV accident. These firemen amongst others saved my life. I would like to express my gratitude and appreciation to these men and all other fireman who selflessly and courageously put their lives on the line everyday to help others.

Amongst the odds against me I did survive and although I know there were many others who contributed to my survival, I know it all started with these firemen. They not only saved my life but most importantly to me, my family. They saved my children the grief of losing a mother, my husband a wife, my parents a daughter and my siblings a sister and for that on behalf of myself and my family we sincerely thank you for your quick actions which allowed me to be here today to thank you and for all of the greatness you will continue to do. You are a blessing and angels to our community. Thank you."
