Whenever you roll out the door for any reason!  It is a reminder to ALL OF US! We are not immortal! We must practice safety and common sense at all times.

Our enemy, fire, does NOT care if you are Career or Volunteer - it will kill anyone, anytime, anywhere! Our families need us, our teammates depend on us, and those we protect KNOW that we will do all we can to save their lives.


Property conservation and/or environmental issues are NOT reason for our failure to be safe!!!
