I recently met several Pecans for whom the actions of our Volunteer Fire Department/Emergency Medical Service volunteers were the difference between life and death. Thank you to the men and women who train, prepare and stand ready at all times to serve our neighborhood and its people. What a wonderful convenience our first responders provide at Pecan Plantation!
