Correction: Firefighters prevent fire

Jeff Berino Deputy Chief of Lake Dillon Fire Authority

RE: Fire can be ‘flat-out fun’ (SDN Feb. 1)I’m sure many people are looking forward to a well organized event at Frisco’s “Spontaneous Combustion” which is a part of a long list of activities in the Frisco area this weekend. I think it will be a fun family event; however, I take issue with Mr. Fayhee’s comment that “Jeff (Berino) like most firefighters loves fire.”I’m sure it was taken out of context from Mr. Fayhee in doing the article. I kind of chuckled at the written comment, because that is how John talks, however a phone call to our station voiced some concern that the article implies that firefighters like fire. Like other firefighters, I take fire prevention and education very seriously, and have spent the vast majority of my 26 years in the fire service doing that very thing. I wish the attendees of the event a fun and safe time.
