With Heavy Hearts and Heads in Hands

Once again we find ourselves mourning the loss of two brothers.  Lt. Steven Velazquez and Firefighter Michel Baik paid the ulitmate price on Saturday July 24 in Bridgeport Connecticut.

It is way too early to know what happened and why, but we should take a moment to refocus our efforts and make sure we are as prepared as we can be to do our jobs.  We need to be extra vigilant and always expect that the worst can happen. 

So as you head to the station this morning, take a moment to say a prayers for Brothers Velazquez , Baik, their families and the Bridgeport Fire Department.  Then take a moment to make sure you are as prepared as you can be.  We owe to these brothers, and the hundreds of brothers before them that have made the ultimate sacrafice.
