  1. Yes, congratulations to all the Graduates! On a side note, I find it telling that when people have complaints about the LFD they’ll go on and on. Yet, when 7 new members (from Lakewood) graduate, having just put in close to 6 months of hard work, no one can be bothered to express their appreciation. These individuals devoted their own time over many nights and weekends away from family and personal obligations, all for the protection of the population of this township’s life and property. The graduates are now prepared and dedicated to risking their own lives for you (yes, you who are reading this). The least we can all do is comment; Congratulations! (or click thumbs up). Thank you to the whole Lakewood Fire Department!!

  2. It takes a tremendous amount of courage to rush into a roaring fire to save lives and property, and these brave men and women do it without pay. I salute you for your courage, your dedication and your service to our town. Thank you and stay safe.
    Perhaps next time the Scoop could print a list of the graduates who will be serving Lakewood so we can thank them personally when we see them .
