Firefighters Day 2019

Today is Firefighters Day -- a day to thank those who are firefighters - whether volunteer or career

This day goes back to 1999 - more background here

Finally - the creator of Firefighters Day, Lieutenant JJ Edmondson, said this:

The role of a firefighter in today’s society–be it urban, rural, natural environment, volunteer, career, industrial, defense force, aviation, motorsport, or other is one of dedication, commitment, and sacrifice–no matter what country we reside and work in. In the fire service, we fight together against one common enemy–fire–no matter what country we come from, what uniform we wear or what language we speak.
Those all who serve as firefighters -- especially those in Wildwood, Tyee Lake or McLeese Lake - thank you to your dedication to your local communities and know that you are appreciated for the service you provide to your local residents'...
