Thanks guys for your commitment to your community and the knowledge you possess by doing your job on and off the clock. Your response made the response of emergency personnel like fire and paramedics more effective by shutting down the conflagration. If only the board of directors and the CEO had your commitment, this incident would most likely not have happened. We can only hope when the gavel drops, those ultimately responsible are under it.
