To the Editor:
My name is Mark Trimble, I am a resident in the ‘Traditions’ housing track off of Goodenough Road and a retired law enforcement professional.
I would like to extend my sincere thanks to all the Emergency Services Professionals who responded to the Goodenough Road Fire Incident on March 8th.
It was a tremendous display of skill and coordination between the responding fire departments, law enforcement agencies and other emergency services first responders.
The fire coupled with 40 mph winds created a scenario that could have easily destroyed dozens of homes and created conditions that threatened the lives of residents and the responding firefighters.
Considering the combination of the fire and high winds, the firefighting professionals had the fire contained in an extremely short period of time. The law enforcement officers from Ventura County Sheriff’s Department and California Highway Patrol were extremely helpful and professional in assisting the residents whose properties were involved in the evacuation.
Thank you again for your extraordinary efforts and skills.
Commander Mark A. Trimble (Ret.)
