July 9, 2013 — We never say thank you enough to the brave men and women in Susanville and Lassen County who respond to an emergency, and that should change.
When our homes or land are engulfed in flames, when a friend or family member has a medical crisis, when a crime is being committed or when two vehicles collide, our first responders leap into action without regard for their personal safety. We call, and they respond. Every time.
We can never forget how our community lost one of its own when Luke Sheehy, 28, perished fighting a wildfire last month. All those who knew and loved him will sorely miss him.
