The brotherhood that is present in the firehouse, helping residents in our community, training younger members so they are prepared for the future. I love everything about the firehouse!

I am very thankful for the men and women that serve the community as volunteers. That having been said, This man's death while unfortunate, in no-way happened in the line of duty, however this technicality must be observed, for insurance purposes..

I absolutely agree with old and in the way. Again not taking anything away from volunteering but to me in the line of duty would be it happened while at the scene.
