We want to express our gratitude to Loveland Fire Rescue Authority for their time in helping one of our Veteran families in Loveland. The Vietnam Army Veteran developed Parkinson's disease, diabetes, asthma, and prostate cancer due to agent orange. As his health continues to decline, he and his wife are downsizing their home because they will be moving into an assisted living facility.
We needed help moving large and heavy pieces of furniture from their home to our storage unit. The items will be donated to other Veterans. We had the pickup and trailer but were short on manpower.
Through our connections at Frederick-Firestone Fire Protection District, it was suggested we contact Division Chief Greg Ward in Loveland to facilitate this effort. He was eager to help and made things happen in a big way. He turned over the coordination to Captain Robert Carmosino, who became our point of contact.
Captain Carmosino arranged for nine LFRA volunteers to meet us at the Veteran's home. Within 30 minutes, they had the items out of the home and loaded on the trailer. Further, some of those volunteers met us at our storage facility and moved the items inside. This was above and beyond our initial request and was much appreciated!
The Veteran and wife were overwhelmed by the service and efficiency provided by LFRA and are grateful beyond words.
Never underestimate the power of teamwork and your local fire department's service, dedication, and compassion!
