Letter: Appreciation for fire response

Everyone at Distinguished Boards + Beams would like to extend their gratitude to each of the emergency responders from Carbondale and Rural Fire Protection District, Basalt fire and Carbondale Police Department for keeping our neighborhood, our staff and our facility safe on Tuesday when we experienced a well-contained yet unfortunate emergency event at our facility in downtown Carbondale.

Thanks to the immediate and flawless functioning of our fire safety mechanisms (the genius work of Tom Bleskan), along with the quick and skilled efforts of the many first responders, the situation was brought under control with surprising efficiency and no damage to the facility.

We would like to extend special thank-yous to those volunteer responders who took time out of their busy days to ensure the safety of our community, and to Rob Goodwin for his diligent investigation support.

Distinguished Boards + Beams
