Letter to the Editor

Not pleased with the rude response

To the Editor:

On May 29, 2010, my younger sister called me and said she was stuck in the automatic car wash when the power went out.

I immediately got into my car and drove up there.

When I got there, I noticed the Brazil Fire Department was across the road. I then drove over there to inform them that my sister and her baby were stuck in the automatic car wash.

(A member of the fire department) yelled at me and said she would have to wait. She wasn't first priority.

Remind you; she has a baby in the car.

They then proceeded to go over there 30 minutes later. When he arrived, he was very rude and aggressive toward her and her daughter. He was yelling so loud, my niece was crying and holding her ears.

He told her to leave her car and come and get it later. He then walked away.

Another gentleman was there and found a way to get the door open so she could drive out.

So I sit here wondering. Is it in their job description to only put out fires and not help the public when they are in need?

Thank God for the gentleman that actually cared for my sister and her daughter's wellbeing.

Maybe he should apply for chief of the Brazil Fire Department.
