Where firefighters come to talk training

This one hits close to home…Pat Taaffe is a friend of mine and fellow fireman for St. Johns County Fire Rescue. Pat is assigned to Engine 12 C and we are both in the same battalion. I’ve known Pat for many years and can remember him riding with us on Squad 17 after he came to St. Johns County. He has dedicated over 20 years to the fire service and I can personally say he is a great guy. There is no way to tell how many people Pat has saved or affected, but he always shows up when the tones drop. Pat has been a big supporter of Tactical Advantage Training from the start…Now Pat needs all the help he can get. A couple weeks ago, Pat went in for a check-up and found out he has Stage 4 colon cancer that has moved into his liver.  He started his fight against cancer today with chemo.  Now let us stand together as firefighters and help him out. I’m not asking you to give money, but if it just means skipping your Starbucks for one morning to throw a little change Pats way I’d be grateful. The Go Fund Me account is listed below along with the Pat's Fight Facebook Page.
