Help was given from many organizations during fire

The Board of Directors of the Mancos Fire Protection District and the members of Mancos Hose Co. #1 wish to recognize and thank the following organizations for their help during the Weber Fire. Without their dedication and unselfish assistance, it would have been very difficult to achieve the successful protection of homes and property during this disastrous wildfire.

All it took was one call and they were ready to respond with manpower and the apparatus necessary to reach that goal. A friend and neighbor were in need of help and they volunteered to commit their personnel to assist our community during this time. We could not have done it without their help.

Our heartfelt thanks go out to each of them. We were proud to work next to each of these departments: Fire Departments Mancos Hose Co. #1, Cortez, Ft. Lewis Mesa, Ute Mtn. Utes, San Juan Co., N.M., Durango, Pleasant View, Dolores, Lewis, and Rico. Thanks also to Mancos Marshall, Cortez Dispatch Center, Red Cross, Southwest Ambulance, Montezuma Co. Sheriff, Federal Government Management Teams III and II and all incoming wildland firefighting teams.

To all individuals and groups from surrounding communities that provided assistance and supplies to the Mancos Fire Dept.,thank you!
