Many thanks to fire and police departments during recent blaze


We recently witnessed a horrific fire disaster in the core of our community.  Multiple businesses; a veteran’s home, went up in flames.

We, collectively, need to pause for a moment, in humbled gratitude, to Rome’s Bravest, Rome Fire Department; and Rome’s Finest, Rome Police Department, for saving a human resident and his canine from the inferno and preventing the entire surrounding block from such a fate. 

If they were able to do so, they would have saved those creatures inside Peterson’s.  To paraphrase a comment from history --- so many of us owe so much t o so few among us.  Again, thank you RFD & RPD for being on the front lines each and every day protecting our community!
