Letter: Fast response in Eagle Co.

Joseph D. Hoy
Eagle Co. Sheriff
Vail, CO Colorado

An odor of natural gas prompted the evacuation of the Eagle County Detention Facility Feb. 2. The command presence and professionalism was vital in safely moving, securing, and containing inmates in the court room (away from possible harm) until the gas odor was able to be mitigated.

I would like to thank all those that came to our assistance: the Western Eagle County Ambulance, Eagle Fire Department, Eagle County Facilities and Maintenance, Vail Public Safety Communication Center, Eagle Police Department, and deputies from the Eagle County Sheriff’s Office. Your fast response and professional demeanor make you a true asset to your profession.
