What is that white stuff on the ground in your photo? Seriously I just wanted to say that I am glad you are on board now with the WRFD. I'm looking forward to working with you to make it the department that it should be.

Please allow me to invite you to a site designed by responders for responders... the crew that is doing it is CISM multilevel trained and are there for the guys after the bad calls. It helps the responders that do not yet have a team or would be worried that they asking for help would be seen as weakness. Please join and share it when you can. As a chaplain with over 25 years of service to fire departments I am excited with it's potential to provide support.
