Where firefighters come to talk training

       Tradition is a very big part of the Fire Service, Next to Training and Fighting Fires it's a Key element that defines us as to who we are. From the day we walk in as a Probationary Firefighter to day we Retire or Leave a office that we have held , Tradition is there, Its  A Right of Passage .

      Tradition can best defined as a Ritual, belief or object passed down within a Society, also a baiscal character of a society meaningful clothes [ i.e Uniforms , and such] . The concept of Tradition , as the notion of holding on to a previous time . In our service , such things would be the Pinning of the badge for Probationary Firefighters , or the tradition of a Retiring Chief turning in thier Badges to receicve the badge of Past Chief.

      We need to keep these Traditions alive and teach them to our younger genaration of Firefighters , failure to do so will result in a lost too great to the Fire Service .

         "Tradition does not mean that the living are dead,it means the dead are Living"
