SOME OF YOUR GREAT COMMENTS
 

A Real Special One

Hi Britt,

 
Just wanted to share with you about my special boy.  Our son Chad is 8 years old and has Asperger's Syndrome, a high functioning form of Autism.  Since he was about 1 year old he has been "into" fire trucks. He has only grown to love them and all that goes with it as he gets older.
 
I don't know how I discovered your web site, but needless to say it is the motivation I  needed to get him to school lately.  He really hates going and the teachers are becoming more insistent he not talk about firefighting.  So each morning before he leaves for school we come to your web site and are going thru each state.  He gets to pick a couple favorites which I print for him and he takes them to school.  We give them to his teacher (he's in special ed.) and when he completes reading or math he gets to spend a few minutes relaxing and looking at them.
 
He is also into the old Emergency show and watches an episode or 2 daily.  He also likes Adam 12.  He and his Dad play each night at bedtime the they are Roy & Johnny! 
 
Well Britt, this is longer than I planned but I just wanted you to know the joy you have brought our little boy.  Thanks so much.

Britt,
 

THE BEST COMPREHENSIVE FIRE WEB SITE I'VE SEEN AND I'VE SEEN A LOT...

THIS IS BY FAR THE BEST SITE IN ALL ASPECTS TO A LOCAL FIRE INTEREST

Britt,

 
I am currently doing a 1 year tour at Ali Al Salem Air Base in Kuwait.  You have a great website and I just wanted to wish all my fellow brother and sister firefighters from the Cape & Islands a Merry Christmas and a safe New Year.  Keep up the great work you all do!  Thanks.

Britt,

 
I have seen many, many websites and when I came across yours today I just had to tell you this is by far the best FD site I have accessed.  You website should be the "standard" for all large FD sites, it is so easy to navigate and it contains so much info. Keep up the good work!!

Britt,

Man, what can I say except AWESOME website!!  I could not believe the amount of information you have collected.  I am a firefighter/EMT here in Virginia.  I am also a dispatcher for the county, dispatching police/fire/ems.  I have always wanted to do a site for our fire/rescue departments like you have done for your area. 

Sincerely,

David Morgan  


Britt,

Love the supersite. I've been listening all day in Germany. Its really fun. Yarmouth police responded to a residential alarm and I could here the actual alarm going off over the broadcast of the police officer.
AWESOME. Keep up the great job on the website...

SrA John D. McPherson


Britt,

I think the word is WOW! You have done a fantastic job assembling this site. I came in looking to trade patches and stayed as long as I could looking at just a few of the elements that you have put together. I'll be back.
