The best thing to ever happen to me was when I became an Emergency Medical Technician (EMT) and Firefighter. On December 1, 2007, I met with the captain,

My daughter came to me about a year ago and told me she had written a poem. Knowing she was only 3 yrs old and had just mastered writing her alphabet I knew it would have been a miraculous achievement if she had actually written anything on paper besides the usual smiley faces and scribbled flowers. To my amazement she had not put it on paper; she had made up this poem in her head and had said it so…Continue

FROM THE FFN PIO GROUP:
At first I was a little confused about the following message because I wasn't sure where it originated from and where it was intended to go.
As I read it a second time, I realized that it had come from the US Fire Administration and it was meant specifically for us - the PIO group on FFN. Now, that's pretty cool that DHS has recognized our group as a target audience and partner for…Continue
