RE: “Trials By Fire” (GT, 1/19): Thank you, Ryan. Very well-written. Your words let me feel the intensity of not only your training, but your emotions and pain. I’ve broken and bruised my ribs numerous times (motorcycle mishaps), and am here to state that bruised ribs are just as painful, and take about as long to heal, as broken ribs!
I appreciate your verve, and your commitment to our neighborhood, and our fire department. I’ve been living in Lompico for over 42 years, and share your concerns for our beautiful little box canyon.
Proud to have you in our department.
Director, Zayante Fire
