Letter: Fire prevention a yearlong effort

On Tuesday, Oct. 4, the Chester County Commissioners issued a proclamation recognizing Fire Prevention Week.

The commissioners noted that eight people have died in fires in Chester County in the past year and $36 million worth of property was destroyed in county fires. Taking steps to stop fires and save lives is a yearlong endeavor.

The commissioners should be congratulated for raising the awareness of the need for everyone to work together, the public and the fire company members, to stop fires before they begin.

Longwood Fire Company is celebrating its 95th anniversary this year. We invite the public to join us during our open house on Sunday, Oct. 16 from noon until 3 p.m. We are all participants in the effort to curtail fires in our community.

A.J. McCarthy
