Honoring Local Firefighters [VIDEO]
Today, May 4th, we celebrate International Firefighters’ Day!
WNY is honoring those who serve in our community and recognizing the sacrifices that firefighters make to ensure that our environment is as safe as possible. See names of your local servicemen and women inside. Also get a sneak peek at the film "Burn".
“The role of a firefighter in today’s society – be it urban, rural, natural environment, volunteer, career, industrial, defence force, aviation, motor sport, or other is one of dedication, commitment and sacrifice – no matter what country we reside and work in. In the fire service we fight together against one common enemy – fire – no matter what country we come from, what uniform we wear or what language we speak.”
- Lt JJ Edmondson, 1999
