ESD 1 Board Expresses Thanks
Just under 24 hours after the city of West was rocked by a powerful explosion at the West Fertilizer Company, members of volunteer fire departments gathered for the April meeting of Hill County Emergency Services District 1 Board of Commissioners.
The 15 people who died in the West explosion
Mr. Pustejovsky was the city secretary in West. He was a volunteer firefighter who responded to the fire.
Heroes came from all walks of life, and came running
They were fathers and friends and, in many cases, volunteer firefighters. They were hardworking, humble folks, known for helping others.
Firefighters put selves in danger to answer the call
As flames lit up the night sky of this small central Texas community, firefighters and other emergency responders raced to the West Fertilizer Co.
