OK, I now work for Shelby Fire Dept and starting Thursday I'm assigned to the Truck Co. New ballgame for me since I'm a die hard engine man. Stay Safe Brother!

Brother Firefighters

You may or may not be aware that Derry Fire Department, in Derry N.H have recently negotiated in their contract that 9-11 be a paid holiday for their members in lieu of Columbus Day! In addition, the Peabody Police Department, in Peabody Ma, are negotiating an additional paid holiday for
9-11! By definition, a holiday is something you celebrate, like the New Year, the birth of Christ, Thanksgiving, your birthday, not the untimely deaths of 343 firefighters.

I am sure our brother firefighters in FDNY do not see the loss of 343 fellow firefighters is anything to celebrate. To think that getting paid holiday is a way to commemorate the loss of our fellow firefighters is beyond me. Out of respect for members of the FDNY, I am trying to start a grass roots effort to have 9-11 be declared a National Day Remembrance. Don’t you think that the 343 firefighters would rather you throw back a beverage of your choice in their honor, on September 11th, than getting money at their expense?

Please pass this on to any fire department you have contact and cc a copy to Derry FD.
