Subject: Boston Firefighter saves little black girl - Just one of the many reasons to say thank you to them!!
Subject: A Note from a Vietnam Veteran on Veteran's Day
As a Vietnam Veteran, I am asking you all to honor Veterans by taking the time to care for the principles of this country--the Constitution and the Bill of Rights.

I don't care who or what you believe in, our common ground is the United States of America. Please take the time to offer your prayers and thoughts for a better, more compassionate, more tolerant, and fairer country.

Veterans' sacrifices (some with their lives) were and are made to protect your freedom, and liberties, not for anyone to make thoughtful and wise decisions, that is up to you!!

Thank you,
A Vietnam Veteran

PS: My Tour of Duty was March 67 to February 68.

Featured Volunteer Fire Department - Fallon/Churchill Volunteer Fire Department

The Fallon/Churchill Volunteer Fire department was chosen to be featured here, because it is the first volunteer ISO Class 1 Fire Department in the country.

Fallon/Churchill Volunteer Fire Department
The two fire departments featured on this website demonstrate that it does not matter, if you have a small nor large, paid nor volunteer, it is possible for a fire department to have the highest possible ISO class rating.
The count of ISO Class 1 fire departments is increasing, and many fire departments have been working to improve their ratings, but it does puzzle me in the light of the potential savings, millions and even billions of dollars, why don't more fire departments have higher ratings?
