I am certain that other local fire departments faithfully serve their residents, but I would like to make this observation based on the recent ice storm.
If you are old and inclined to live in the boondocks, make it Lyme and, in particular Three Mile Bay. For as the saying goes, They got your back, Jack.
I am referring to nonrequested help in the form of checking each residence to see if help is needed and following up with a phone call. I was also privileged with a flaming wire down that was about to do serious damage, and they were there. I can sleep in comfort knowing that the Three Mile Bay Fire Department will be there when I need them, and that includes their EMTs.
