Firefighters volunteer to help community programs
I was delighted to read your 10/23/00 article in appreciation of Firefighter Dave Leggett, who certainly deserves recognition for his many efforts for the safety of our community. I noticed, however, that one aspect of Dave's involvement was not included in his already long list of activities.
For the last couple years, Dave has volunteered his time to become trained in the area of child passenger safety and frequently assists at the car seat checkup events held at Evergreen Hospital.
Many has been the Saturday that Dave has sacrificed his free time to come work with parents to ensure proper car seat use. His willingness to help has been greatly appreciated by myself and the parents he serves.
Our program has also benefited from the volunteering of other Woodinville firefighters, who should be thanked as well: Ian D'Ambrosia, Matt Plush, Matt Roodzant, and Ryan Englund (former Explorer Scout).
