Where firefighters come to talk training

(I am a "newbee" to this forum so if I have used the wrong forum please exscue my inexperience).

I am in need of some Fire Department patches.

We have a junior Firefighter Named Aidan Loney that I want to make a FD patch wall for.

Aidan was diagnosed with Osteosarcoma back on March 16th, 2009. He was limping with some pain and eventually had a full leg X Ray and discovered a mass. It was located just above his right knee. Aidan had his knee replaced and the tumor removed on July 1st.

Monday (Dec 14th) Aidan's scan of his leg came back clear. No more surgeons and no more needles!

I want to commemorate this event with a wall of Fire Department patches for his room at his house.

The Olathe FD is actually going through a transition from uniform "blues" to polo's and I will most likely have a patch to trade with, but I won't know for sure until the end of the week.

If you would like to send a patch please send it to me at:

Olathe Fire Department

1225 S Hamilton Circle

Olathe, KS 66061

If you want a patch in return please include a self addressed stamp envelope.

If you have any friends in the fire service that may be willing to send a patch please forward on this e-mail.

If you want to read Aidan's story go to

I will appreciate any assistance with this.

Respectfully submitted,

Bill Schneider

Fire Captain-Technical Rescue Coordinator
