To the Editor:
The city of Shelton has always been protected from fire and other disasters by its brave volunteer firefighters who come from all walks of life, many of whom are following their relatives into the fire service some three to four generations deep. There are four fire companies in Shelton with a compliment of 246 firefighters who race to the aid of its citizens without question 24/7, 365. These volunteers train and practice just as paid fire personnel do to be there in our time of need. On Sunday, Aug. 18, the celebration of the 100th anniversary of the Huntington Fire Co. #3 began with the dedication of their newly constructed memorial brick garden just across from the Shelton Community Center in front of the fire house.
