Fire Commissioners Show Appreciation to Firefighters working on the Holiday

cookiesPHOTOS: Nobody likes working on a Holiday, but those who do sacrifice their family-time to serve the community display their dedication to the people they serve, and to the town they live in.

cookies 3In an effort to express their appreciation for their dedication, Fire Commissioners Glenn Bradford and Larry Loigman last night stopped by the staffed Monmouth Avenue Fire Station to deliver fresh cookies to the firemen on call for the town.

  1. Cookies only? How about a hot holiday family meal? I think they earned at least that! The police absolutely should have the same. Thank you is not enough for these men and women who serve and protect.

  2. @Judie why would the fire commissioner bring to police? It would be nice if someone brought something to our wonderful police officers. … how about you getting off your couch and be the one to do it…. that would certainly be more productive then complaining on here

  3. All do respect they are getting paid very vell to be there,these are not volunteers these are paid fireman! If your job requires you to work on a holiday then that is wat you do , nothing special here

  4. Judie, they’re fire commissioners. The police commissioner can give to the police. Or you can go bring them something yourself. This is simply a gesture to show appreciation. Nothing we give them will be a big enough thank you for putting their lives on the line 365 days a year. As a volunteer FF myself I still appreciate any goodwill gesture anyone makes to recognize what we do.

  5. The cookies were a nice gesture. As for the police they like donuts. and as for them getting paid well has nothing to do with it. The employer wanted to show some good will in the spirit of the holiday season.

  6. It does not matter if they get paid or not they still deserve our thanks. It’s the same way I thank the bus driver and the mailman. They are getting paid but they still deserve a thank you.
