I started a Facebook group not too long ago. It picked up some traffic, but not too much (several hundred people from an array of departments).
I just had to recreate the group, since Facebook is archiving groups that don't "upgrade." What this does is erases everything from the group, so I have to start from scratch once again. I've invited a couple hundred people, and I've posted some articles from a couple of websites (this one included).
This is not an organization, nor do we take donations. This group is meant to spread awareness about firefighters throughout the world. What I hope to see is other fire departments interacting with fire department supporters, people posting pictures, and people posting experiences.

Spread the word. I'll do my best to constantly update the page with fresh stories pertaining to firefighting, as well as other emergency service branches.
