Hello there!

My name is Kendra Bilger and I was involved in the accident on 29 September
on Route 1 and Harrison Road. I just wanted to write an email to thank all
who came out to the accident and helped. While I do not remember much of
that night, my dog was well taken care of, as was my fiancé and I. Thank
you for your professionalism and quick response!

Respectfully,

SGT Kendra Bilger

THIS IS A BIG "THANK YOU" FOR ALL THOSE WHO HELPED OUT ON THE HIT AND RUN ACCIDENT THAT HAPPENED ON THE EVENING OF SATURDAY AUGUST 31, 2013. ON OUR WAY HOME ON ROUTE 208, AND THE INTERSECTION OF LEAVELLS ROAD OUR TRUCK WAS STRUCK, OVERTURNED AND LANDED IN THE DITCH. THE OTHER DRIVER KEPT ON GOING. PASSER BUYERS HELPED MY HUSBAND AND I OUT OF OUR F150. A COUPLE OF MEN HELPED TO GET MY HUSBAND OUT AS HE WAS HAVING A HARD TIME MANEUVERING HIS LEGS, AFTER HE GOT HIS SEAT BELT UNDONE. I REMEMBERING HEARING A LADY ASK HOW MANY PEOPLE AND WHERE WE LOCATED IN THE TRUCK . THEN I RECALL HER SAYING SHE WAS GOING TO BREAK THE GLASS ON MY SIDE. I DO NOT RECALL EXACTLY HOW I GOT OUT BECAUSE I HAD A HARD TIME GETTING OUT OF THE SEAT BELT WHICH I FINALLY DID GET UNDONE. WHEN I DID, I JUST STARTED TO CRY ABOUT MY TRUCK WHICH WAS MY CHILD!! ROBIN WHO SAID SHE WAS A VOLUNTEER TRIED TO KEEP ME CALM. I DID SEE ANOTHER GUY IN A GRAY SHIRT NOT SURE HOW HE MAY HAVE BEEN INVOLVED. SHE STAYED WITH ME UNTIL THE RESCUE CREW CAME. I BELIEVE SOME OTHERS FOLLOWED THE DRIVER THAT HIT US. AN AMBULANCE RIDE WITH HARRY AND CHRIS TO THE HOSPITAL I WENT. WE ARE VERY LUCKY TO HAVE COME OUT OF THIS WITH JUST SCRAPES, BRUISES, ACHES AND PAINS. SEAT BELTS DO SAVE LIVES. AGAIN "THANK YOU" TO ALL INVOLVED IN THIS ACCIDENT.

Just learned of the brush fire @ Curtis Lane... I have only been at my house for a little over a year & had to Google it since it sounded familiar. Turns out I am less than about a mile & a half "as the crow flies" from Curtis Lane.

I would like to thank the SVFD crew that worked the brush fire today. Recently divorced, I have no family on the East Coast to go to. I am really glad I had a house to come home to after work today. I don't know what I would have done otherwise. I hope all went well & there were no injuries. Y'all have my deepest respect for what you do! Y'all are our hometown heroes!!

Thanks to all of the SVFD for all that you do!!

From a retired Corrections Officer.

Chief -- my brother-in-law, Roy Chittum, is a life member of the Spotsylvania VFD. He went missing from his home in Barrington, NH this past weekend. A recent article on his disappearance and the status of efforts to locate him can be found at http://www.unionleader.com/article/20120827/NEWS07/708279888/0/NEWS0602.

Roy hailed from Spotsylvania County and if he reaches out to any of his old acquaintenances there, the Barrington PD and his family would deeply appreciate knowing about it.

Thanks,

Thank you to Company 4 for responding to our house on June 1 for a lightning strike that caused a fire in our basement. Thanks so much for the quick response! And thank you for keeping me informed about what was happening inside my house and what my husband and I needed to do afterwards. Can't thank you enough!

Dear Spotsylvania Fire & Rescue,

I wanted to write you this email in regards to one of the pages on your website

http://www.spotsyfire.org/apps/public/news/newsView.cfm?News_ID=152

This was the car accident that my little sister was in. I was looking through some of the pictures, and as painful as it was, I could only see the name of one of the firefighters/rescue workers that was at the scene (CHartle). I wanted to send my deepest Thanks for him being there. My entire family is so grateful that you guys were at least able to save my niece. Thank you so much, I cannot even begin to explain the emotions running through me right now.

Thank You,

Lisa Kirby

My name is Jodi Harrison and I am the mother of Michael Harrison, whom you rescued from the double entrapment on 208, August 14, 2011. I wanted to thank all of you who saved my son's life. Had he moved the wrong way, his broken neck would have pierced his spinal cord. In all he broke his neck, back, shoulders, hip, shattered pelvis, ruptured spleen, bladder and kidney, colapsed lung and other semi-minor issues too numerous to count. He is still in recovery at UVA, but is expected to make a full recovery. My gratitude is will forever be given to the firefighters and rescue personel of Spotsylvania County. His life will forever be changed, but because of you he is alive! Thank you from the bottom of my heart!

Congrats on getting your new Squad in Fire Apparatus & Emergency Equipment Magazine!!! Looks GREAT! Do you still have the Goldleaf installed on the truck by hand? That truck will serve you well and I bet the guys at Company 4 are just smiling from ear to ear. Can't wait to see some up close pictures on this website! (Soon?) That care and stay safe.

I want to thank the men and women who selflessly give of themselves at the times when the rest of us need them the most. As private citizens of the community they, as well as their families, give their weekends, their evening family time, as well as a good nights rest to respond to someone else's emergency. They give of their own personal resources at a time that is difficult at best. The only thing that they ask for is that someone would do it for them in their time of need. As family and friends of these men and women and as an entire community, we who do not VOLUNTEER, need to make sure that they have the necessary resources to continue doing what needs to be done. We all have a voice.
