To the editor:

I would like to thank the firefighters from the East Side Station who responded to my call of downed and sparking wires during the hurricane. The response was immediate and they examined the interior and exterior of the house to make sure that no fire had started where the wires were sparking and popping outside the window. Stamford is fortunate to have such professionals in our Fire Department. The 911 operator also deserves mention as well for giving us safety instructions while waiting for the Fire Department to arrive.
