Siemen's praises NFD for timely response to fire

Mayor Williams asked us share this letter from Siemen's Energy and Automation on Forest Avenue with our readers:

February 16, 2011

Dear Mayor Williams:

On Friday, February 11th, the Norwood Fire Department responded to a significant fire at the property of Siemens Industry on Forest Avenue. The fire involved an area of the plant that allows us to test motors, a process that is crucial to our business and customer satisfaction. With the timely, professional response from the Norwood Fire Department, in conjunction with Siemens personnel, the fire was under control and suppressed in a matter of minutes without injuries.

Norwood fire inspectors and staff members are actively involved with Siemens operations through a partnership incorporating plant tours and training simulations. Without this vital information, the fire incident on Friday could have been far more damaging to the property and to the employees of Siemens in Norwood.

Please join us in extending our appreciation for their continued dedication and hard work. We thank The Norwood Fire Department - Gem of the Highlands!

Best regards,
