The other night, a water pipe burst, causing damage to four homes, including mine.
Within minutes, the Torrance Fire Department was on the scene and remained there for approximately two hours. They acted in an efficient and professional manner in diagnosing the source of the problem and during the subsequent cleanup operations.
Obviously, the Class One rating the Torrance Fire Department holds is for good reason. On behalf of the residents of the El Camino Parkview Homeowners Association, I'd like to thank the firefighters who responded to the call.
Without a doubt, their involvement kept the damage to a minimum, providing a reminder of how important it is to keep our public safety departments fully funded and staffed.
