Thieves Stole a Water Tank From the Leggett VFD And They Shut off the Station’s Power Which Could Have Delayed the Firefighters’ Response to an Emergency
“The people responsible disabled the Fire Station power which shuts off our water pump, radio, and garage doors,” The Leggett Fire Department reports. “This could cause a delay in emergency response. The Fire Department is offering a $1000 reward for any information that leads to the recovery of the tank.”
Beyond the financial loss, beyond the danger to the community when the electricity was shut off, there is a sense of loss that someone would do this to the folks that are there to protect us all. As the Leggett Firefighters Facebook page notes, “The all volunteer members of Leggett Fire are disappointed that anybody would steal anything from a Fire Department. Karma comes back around.”
If you have any information, please contact the Mendocino County Sheriff’s Department at (707) 463-4086.
