Please help me so that we do not lose another one of our wonderful Frontline protectors.

Thank you so much for taking the time to celebrate and shower our baby girl with love, gifts and such creative birthday wishes. She is definitely loved and is still smiling from ear-to-ear. Y’all are the absolute BEST!🎉
William Prevatte Monday August 26, 2019 [email protected] Re: Kayla Richard Ronsonet 43 from Iberia LA: Middletown Connecticut: 43 year old Kayla Richard Ronsonet is a resident of Iberia LA and is a 17 year veteran of the Iberia Parish Sheriff's Office. And is a single mom of two teenagers Drake and Kenzie Ronsonet. And their mother is in need of a kidney transplant and support. And suffers from renal failure I extend my deepest thoughts and prayers for the family of Ms. Ronsonet It would be a great privilege and honor to put together a lemonade stand entitled. The 1st annual William Prevatte Lemonade Stand to help raise funds for the expenses and medical bills for MS. Kayla Richard Ronsonet. And to encourage people and the public to get tested and to donate a kidney and to help save a life do it for yourself and do it for the person that you love. The William Prevatte 1st annual Lemonade Stand in dedication to help raise funds for the expenses and medical bills for MS. Kayla Richard Ronsonet. I encourage the public and the Middletown Fire Department Main Street Station and city leaders and community members to help raise funds for the expenses and medical bills from Kayla Richard Ronsonet's medical attention and treatment. And this lemonade stand in honor and dedication of Kayla Richard Ronsonet will be a huge success in getting funds donated as a result of Ms. Kayla Ronsonet needing a kidney. So I ask the Middletown Fire Department Main Street Station and fellow firefighters to donate funds from the lemonade stand to help save the life of 43 year old Kayla Ronsonet who desperately needs a kidney. In closing I would just like to say my thoughts and prayers are with the families. And the funds going to be raised I have a goal of raising $250.00 in expenses from the lemonade stand for the medical bills and treatment. So right now do me this favor donate. And help me save a life. Thank you very much, William M. Prevatte Middletown Connecticut Resident
Did you know that Louisiana has the highest rate of drownings in the U.S. for kids ages 1-14 years old?! You can find more information on water safety at https://www.poolsafely.gov and https://www.childrenssafetynetwork.org/…/drowning-prevention
Shift 3 with NIFD completed a walk through a few days after the Fremin's incident to see the actual layout of the scene. Totally different thought's on this when you can actually see. Some may look at this call and view it as a total loss. When looking at the bigger picture of this, 3/4 +or- of the total structure was saved by responding crews. Building construction, deployed sprinkler system in other sections of the building and commitment of all personnel on hand had a huge part of preserving property and ensuring all occupants were safely out of the structure. It's not often when NIFD, IPFD and all other responding departments work together at such a complex fire scene. As a Captain with NIFD, I want to personally thank every fire personnel that responded to this scene. From the firefighters that may have made it as nozzle man on the tip of an attack line, to the personnel running back and forth filling much needed SCBA bottles. We all had our part and worked together as a unified team to contain the fire. I would also like to tip my hat on the professionalism displayed by incident commanders Asst. Chief R. Benson and Chief G. Bonin in this rare occasion. Your combined years of service and dedication to personnel on scene were utilized in making sound decisions. At the end of the day the scene was terminated with everyone going home safely. All personnel should pat yourself on the back on a job well done....
