"Not really. The membership votes on who ever they think did a great job over the past year. The Unselfish award is picked by the chief officers on who went above and beyond during the year (training and calls) you know the guys that bust there butt…"

What have you done for you lately?

I know, I know, it’s been about forever sense anything has been posted on here about much of anything. I’ve got a question for you though, what have you done lately to assure that you and your department are remaining safely aggressive? As I continue to read all the remarks about aggressive firefighting being dangerous, and reckless, and bla bla bla I am wondering what we are doing as a group to change this mentality. I know this doesn’t seem like much of anything, but give it a whirl and lets…See More

Hello,      I’ve got a question regarding awards and ceremonies. We are a small volunteer department that has 23 currently active members.

I am asking if anyone would be able to send me a list/breakdown, of what your department has as far as awards goes. We are wanting to create something that motivates members to WANT to make the change…See More

My personal definition of a firefighter: Someone who will risk it all to save a life, whether it is the life of a total stranger or the life of a fellow brother who has been put in harms way. A firefighter is a person with the ability to perform and succeed as an ordinary person placed in extra ordinary positions. A firefighter is a person that can walk into his station and put aside any wrong doings from any of the firefighters in those four walls because those people are his BROTHERS, and no matter what has been done in the past to hurt or tear it apart, it can be pushed aside because family will always be family despite the occasional efforts to avoid the unavoidable. A firefighter is one of a depleting few that will do the job he’s called to do, with an angel watching over his right shoulder and a captain over his left he will face the unstoppable, and stop it.
