In 1754 the father of the fire service Benjamin Franklin penned the nations first political cartoon to illustrate his editorial. While the words of that editorial have been lost to time, his illustration still stands today as a testament to this medium.

Ben Franklin would be proud of the body of work and the command of the pen demonstrated by Paul Combs. His contributions to the fire service will stand for the ages capturing in a single illustration the essence of who we are and were we need to be.  Paul reminds us all that we can do better. He is all to humble to even realize that he is one of the most powerful voices of our time.
