Lightning struck my tree and a huge limb fell on power lines and caught fire. Immediately, the Fire Department was on the scene, and City workers (Public Works) fixed the situation quickly and very professionally.
Nobody got hurt, our power is on, and we all appreciate a job well done. Thank you to everybody involved.

I have a situation that required me to reach out to the Fire Departement, (Deputy Chief) Mark Einwich and (Fire Marshal) Dustin Schultze for the advise and help. Albeit the result is nowhere near the end however, I wanted to let you and the Mayor know the Geneva Fire Department, and especially Mark and Dustin, are outstanding. So please let the Mayor know the team is top notch.
