Marilyn Marcroft, El Dorado Hills "They saved my husband's life 20 years ago … arrived in five minutes and kept him from dying. He's had 20 years to see his daughter grow up and get to know his grandchildren because of the El Dorado Hills Fire Department."
Julie Rand, El Dorado Hills "I haven't had to use it, thankfully, but I'm glad to know they're there for us. I read about their retirements in the Village Life."
Dennis Cox, El Dorado Hills "There was a fire behind our house a couple years ago and they showed up right away. I don't care how much they make or what they do between calls. I want them there when I need them, same for police."
Debra Macgregor, Rescue "The Rescue and Cameron Park Fire Departments saved our home. We had a burn pile from the prior day that flared up while we were gone. It burned right up to our house. They got there just in time."
Darlene Neeley, El Dorado Hills "They've taken 15 rattlesnakes out of our yard. The last one was 4 feet long. This nice woman firefighter took it out and put in a tube. I don't know what they do with them, but I'm sure glad they do it. Now I feed the blue jays. They chase the snakes out."
