I want to thank the two EMS ladies and police officers who responded on Friday 12/08 and the two EMS gentlemen on Sunday 12/10 to transport me to Chester County hospital. Without all your help to calm us down during this scary time!!!

I would like to thank the crew that saved my life, August 19, 2014. I was riding my motorcycle Eastbound on Route 30 near EBY's auto body when a distracted driver (headed West) swerved out of her lane and hit me head-on. I suffered from a broken back, ribs, crushed hips and internal injuries.

You saved my life ! The broken back could have been complicated by a broken spinal column, however I was moved carefully. The doctors said I should never walk again, however I am walking with a cane.

I was in the hospital and rehabilitation for 12 months. Approximately 1 year later I was allowed to move home.

I will come visit one day soon to thank those who helped me, but in the mean time thank you so much........

On August 19th, a young driver veered into oncoming traffic and struck my boyfriend who was on his motorcycle at the time. He had a crushed pelvis, broken ribs, and a very bad back fracture which, I was later told, was dangerously close to being paralyzing.

The Westwood team was crucial in their role of carefully getting him to a trauma center without further injury and stabilizing his back. I could never thank you guys enough for your care in moving him. You were the first in a long series of heroes all with the goal of returning him to a full life. Thank you again!

The residents of this community are lucky to have professionals of your caliber there when needed.

I just wanted to say "Thank you" to Tory and the young gentlemen (sorry I forgot his name) on the ambulance on Christmas Day. Thank you for your promptness and professional care you gave me and calmed me down and spoke to my Mother very respectfully. I appreciate the great service I received. Thank you again.

Very impressive web site. When I moved from Westwood in 1966, Richard Herman was Chief and Bill Barker was Captain. I was surprised to see the newspaper article when Ross Darlington and I were recognized. Believe it or not, I still have those boots. My brother Bill retrieved them from my Mother's (Nanie Root) house after the fire. The last time I was at the firehouse was after the fire at Mom's house. I talked with Bob Gathercole who was Chief at the time. The history section and pictures brought back many memories. The Fire Company has made impressive improvements over the years. I like the blue equipment. God Bless and watch over the Westwood firefighters.

While visiting my parents, I drove past the firehouse that I grew up with my entire life. I remember when Westwood was truly the pace to be, a great little community that was full of life, full of family. Hearing that fire whistle blow is a memory I'll never forget. I remember visiting the firehouse as a child with my Dad, Harry Sheeler Jr., and my Uncle Bill Proffit and sitting with Chetty Taylor reminiscing about the good old days in Westwood. Times have changed, but the pride you show as a fire unit is truly impressive. Congratulations on many years of great progress, commitment and strength and through your honoring of Chetty.

I recently attended your special Valentine's Bingo Marathon. My daughter and I attended for the first time, as we both needed a "Bingo Fix" since we had not played in three weeks due to the weather. I found the advertisement online and we decided to give it a try. All I have to say is WOW!!! We had the best time!! It was well organized, the food was outstanding, the people were friendly, and well worth the $45.00. I will definitely come back again but this time bring a little more $$$$$.

I stopped by the station the other day in regards to buying a t-shirt. When I arrived, I was greeted by fellow firefighters working on the Rescue/Engine. They showed me around and gave me great information about the station and the apparatus. You guys do an excellent job with the website also. I was really impressed by the people there. Iit seems like a very well organized company. Stay safe and thank you guys from your brothers in Virginia.

I look at this site at least once a week. My dad, Ernie Johnson III, was a member before he died back in 2000. He used to take my sister and I over to the firehouse when we were little. I loved it there. I love how big the firetrucks seemed and the color because its not the usual color. I miss going there when I come down to visit my family. I loved the atmosphere there, it was exciting. You guys are doing a great job and stay safe.

I just found this web page. I lived in Westwood (a great place to live) during the late 40's until the early sixties. As a matter of fact, while reading the history of the fire company, it brought back a lot of names of people I knew. I spent a lot of time at the fire house while I was young. My father was Howard Byerly one of the original members and the first president of the fire company.

I remember being there when they were building the first fire house. My father was in charge of the construction of the building and, as a very young boy, I would tag along with him during those times, thinking that I was really helping. I was probably more in the way than anything. But, they were great memories.

I read in your history that you still have some of the original minutes of the first meetings. I'd like to come by some time, if I could, and read them. I'm sure they would bring back a lot of memories that I have forgotten. I was also there at those first meetings.

You've made great progress since those days. I wouldn't expect anything less from people in Westwood. They were always the best!

To Westwood Fire Company #1 of Valley Township: Our entire family was so saddened to hear about Chetty. A very close friend; as well as one of the most respected men in the entire community, as well as region. I personally knew Chetty many years ago, sharing jokes, and just having fun together. Chetty was a man that made you learn the "REAL WORLD" at a very young age, because of his serious side. Chetty always was admired by everyone, for his loyal concern for the beautiful community. When needed, Chetty was always there. I remember still today, on a Saturday, that we always opened until about 2 o'clock for processing scrap iron for Lukens Steel Company. We always filled any order that Lukens Steel had received via our yard. As you well know, our machinery was going all day long, to produce tonage for Lukens, when the open hearths or electric furnaces got hungry. We were and still are direct processors for Lukens, ever since Harry Riebman, and Mr. Samuel and Mrs. Harriet Houston founded Lukens. Our families were very good friends, and like Chetty will always be friends. Well our beloved friend, you are now in a very special place in heaven now. You are with God and his Angels to look after you now. May God Bless you and your entire family in this delicate time of need. Goodbye, our friend. Elliot Riebman & Family
