Featured Letter: Many thanks to the first responders

To the editor:

I’m so grateful that we have such a wonderful group of people protecting us and our property. The firemen got here amazingly fast (from four departments!) Tuesday afternoon as did the Riverhead police, PSEG workers and Cablevision (See story). 

They got the fires out, cut the power before any more damage was done, and restored power quickly once it was safe to do so. As bad as this all was, it could have gotten much worse without the decisive and collaborative actions of all involved.

Thank you!
