Man down

Posted on February 25, 2009 at 8:51pm 3 Comments

As I sit here looking over all these pages of FF and EMT's I reflect back on a man who changed our dept. HE was on our fire board for over 30 years. Was a great community leader. Never knew a stranger and would give the shirt off his back. Fought tirelessly for all FF and EMT's to ensure proper trainign and funding. This man was callled to heaven Sunday Feb 23,2009 at the age of 82. He will be sadly missed by all and never be replaced.

Hey man thanks for the add yea i don't know about "big boys" we just have the luck i suppose you can say at the moment were strictly volly's no pay of any kind so its hard at times, and usually only have 10-15 guys per major call so were just blessed i should say, and to my knowledge have only lost about 2 complete structures out of about 40 this year and there were no saving them when we got there; but heck yea man if you ever make it this way we'll for sure hang out

Here's part of the article: GEISTOWN, Pa. — Joshua Chilcote in many ways is just your typical 14-year-old teenager. He attends high school where he runs track and plays soccer. He also listens to his iPod, talks on his cell phone and plays video games just like every other kid his age. But unlike most of his peers, Joshua has accomplished something quite extraordinary —winning an AFG for a brand new fire engine.

I hate to say it, but that truck won't rot in the bay. It stays busy enough. That pic is a few years old. Blondie there,17 ,operating the truck is making me a grandfather before I wanted to be. And yes, I still love her to death.
