Staff shines during fire

July 12, 2007

I would like to thank the Eudora firefighters, police officers and City Hall staff for all their efforts during the tragic Fourth of July house fire. It was a long night of work and worry for all involved.

The entire neighborhood around the fire had to be evacuated at 2 a.m. The efforts and sacrifices of all our civil servants are greatly appreciated. In particular, City Administrator Cheryl Beatty, Pam Schmeck and Donna Oleson acted quickly to offer support to those of us who were displaced by the fire. They opened City Hall for us to gather and patiently addressed our many questions and concerns. They contacted the Red Cross and secured rooms at a hotel for those who needed them. I want to say thank you and commend them for their professionalism and compassion.

We are thankful no one got hurt and our prayers go out to the family displaced by the fire.
