It all begins with YOU!

The Sunday Preach


"Show me a firefighter who has performed flawlessly and to the letter of the SOP at every fire and I will show you a bold faced liar...The mettle of the character of the firefighter is forged in how he or she adapts, recovers and learns from a mistake. Don't languish over what is done. Accept the situation, address it, and move on, obviously in the shortest amount of time available." (Pg. 287 "Reducing Residential Injury and LODD")
