Bridgeville cops, firefighters should be applauded for extra effort
To the editor,
The Bridgeville Borough Police Department and Bridgeville Volunteer Fire Department deserve a standing ovation for their thoughtfulness and caring for their community. What I recently viewed on the local news media was the ultimate act of kindness.
A portable basketball hoop was purchased, assembled and delivered by members of both departments to a youth(s) who were using a recycling container as a makeshift basketball hoop. The fire department showed there is more to being a volunteer firefighter than just fighting fires. The police department showed there is more to being a police officer than patrolling the community, issuing traffic citations, issuing non-traffic citations for summary offfenses, or writing affidavits of probable cause and criminal complaints for misdemeanor and felony level crimes.
Being involved with and caring for your community are other duties these two departments exhibited to the extreme with such an act of kindness and caring.
I am sure the portable basketball hoop is getting a lot of use on that street in Bridgeville.
