They get well paid for doing their job and have good benifits and retirement package. How about all the volunters that make milford a better place to live and they do not get paid???

Rich, why the negative attitude? Every resident should contribute to their community in order to make it a better place for their children and neighbors. But there are some jobs where we need a professional staff and when they do well we should praise them, because we are always ready to complain. I believe that Milford is a great place to live. I was not born here, but as an adult I chose to make this my final hometown. I have no regrets.

Ryan, It can't be stressed enough -- as your article points out -- the importance of (working) fire alarms and carbon monoxide detectors in businesses and homes. Our emergency services are top notch, and we would all do well to follow the advice of Cpt. Zak.
