The recent range fire has educated all of us about the dangers that it created. The Rocksprings/Edwards Volunteer Fire Department, the Edwards County Sheriff’s Office and all of the other volunteers experienced difficulty getting through ranches to fight this fire. We are suggesting and requesting that you assist us in getting your combinations and/or keys to your gates so we can serve you better and not having to cut locks, chains and fences.
