Thankful to the NFD

I would like to take this opportunity to give a big thank you to the Newton Fire Department on behalf of the Newton Arboretum. Their prompt, professional help in burning off our east ditch, the cattails along North Fourth Avenue and a huge burn pile was much appreciated.

I called for help or advice on what steps needed to be taken to burn these areas. Within 30 minutes of NFD arrived and went to work. They not only made short work of all areas but controlled traffic on the beltline road as well.

They were professional and safety conscious as we had many elementary students visiting the arboretum that day. I was very impressed, as were the students.

Our community is fortunate to have the department at our service. They are great.
