As we wind down the Pride and Ownership series with this final segment, I can't think of a better time to talk about the whole "never forgetting" thing.
For the past 10 months through this Pride and Ownership series, we have discussed again and again just how great this profession of ours is.
Whenever someone mentions customer ser- vice or marketing in the firehouse, a lot of our firefighters and officers lean back in their chairs, wrinkle their noses, and say, “Not again.
Our fire service is rich in tradition and has a history so fascinating that as a firefighter, young or old, the more you dig into it, the more you can't get enough of it.
Words cannot describe the loss we all felt and suffered on September 11, 2001.
