Letter: Feeling unsafe in Shirley

Shirley fire chief much appreciated by local resident

Feeling unsafe in Shirley

As a mother of two young children it’s nice to know that there are people in our community who are willing to save our lives without hestition. ‘

I have known Donovan Ray for many many years and can say that I absolutely trust my family’s life in his hands.

I had a dealing with him 10 years back and he does not hesitate to help — no matter the situation.

There are people in this community that when they call 911 they ask for the Shirley department to not come, that changed with Donovan in charge.

In a small community like ours you need to trust who’s in charge and that trust comes with time! I really do not feel as safe as I once have.
