About Me:
Our site was designed in full detail from an idea by a firefighter family in the midwest of the United States in April, 2001 to help families. After 9/11 we chose to move further, progressing in social networking and resources to help in "Keeping The Connection" program among wives, mothers and families.

Kari,
Thanks for the comments; I can't tell you how sad I am right now. As you already know - Robin was the best. I didn't know Brian well at all, since he was so new to CTFD, but he was - according to the brothers - one of the good ones.

I am glad to see someone is helping folks in this area. I was shocked at how unprepared everyone was for this horrific event. Nobody had a clue what to do. It was touching to see everyone band together and figure it out together; covering shifts, making calls, running liaison with the media and public... It's been overwhelming.

Anyway - I appreciate you. Tell Flip I said hello. I doubt he'll remember me, though, we were on different units and only worked together twice before he left.

Take care and stay safe,
Jason Edwards CTFD #44
