  3. We will miss a tremendous leader who dedicated his life to bettering the emergency services in Wilton and in Saratoga County. The thoughts and prayers of all the emergency services community go out to Cathe and all of Arnold's family. One only need look around to see the legacy of Arnold Bruno in the Wilton Emergency Squad, the Town of Wilton and their emergency planning, the ham radio community, and in the many organizations he contributed to. Godspeed to our brother and dear friend.
