To the Editor:
This year has been an unusual weather-related 2012. No snow, very hot summer, local and faraway storms, and an unseasonably warm fall.
The unsung heroes are the men and women out on the streets, and ComEd personnel should be thanked for their dedicated service. I was a volunteer firefighter for 25 years and personally witnessed what the men and women on the streets and in their bucket hoists do, working with wires, transformers and trees in very trying weather conditions. When the crews are called out by our police and fire departments, they are on the scene ASAP doing what has to be done. Their job can be very dangerous.
Our police and fire departments do a great job, but so do our ComEd personnel, out on the streets facing snow, heat, storms, accidents and construction issues.
Thank you, ComEd. A lot of us are happy with your service.
