the thrill of it all

safety and coming home alive. Too many (approximately 100+) firefighters each year are LODD. Recruiting and retaining volunteers is also a major concern for all volunteer departments.

Hi Tom, i read somewhere else that the chapters down south did not want Pa. to be part of this, they said it was sountern chapter thing cause the question was raised why are there no Pa. chapters having a run. So i never looked into past that. I was thinking about maybe riding down once i knew our calendar, will let you know.
