The events of Feb. 15, 1999 came on the heels of romance and love for all of us at station 13.

The eyes of my grandfather

Dear Friend,

Please allow me to invite you to the group called HazMat Placards to Success. This group will allow firefighters to discuss a step by step process for a Hazardous Materials response. From the firefighter to the hazmat technician. The first step has been posted in the group, with many more steps to come.

Thank you!
Todd McKee

Sorry for the delay in getting back with you. I have been out of town and I needed to check with Roger. He said he is willing to do the class again we just need to pick a C-shift day so he and I are both off. Call me at 817-929-1108 and we can pick a couple of days to look at.
