Letter: Saving lives is worth a little suffering

To the editor:

You have got to be kidding me! I just read the article in the paper (Thursday) about the people complaining about the sirens around Wilson Creek. Give me a break — if it saves one life it is worth a little suffering for five minutes of your life. It’s not like the siren is going to go off every day. Two people just died, for goodness sake! Think of their families suffering. If you don’t like it - LEAVE!

I live right behind Valmead fire station and the sirens go off daily — day and night — but I don’t mind because I know these men and women on emergency crews are going to help save some lives.

Get Over It. Shame on you. A siren going off to warn people in harm’s way on Wilson Creek is better than more lives lost.
