Brothers and Sisters,
I was asked to pass on the following information regarding retired member Harvey Sanders and his wife Pat. 

Both Harvey and Pat sustained serious injuries from a motorcycle wreck on the westside on Tuesday evening.
As of last night, Harvey's condition had not changed.  He was sedated in prep for surgery this morning for his hip which sustained severe damage in the accident.
Pat is not out of the woods but the swelling is starting to subside.
No visitors are requested at this time except for family members.
Please keep Harvey, Pat and their family in your thoughts and prayers.

 

Hank has reserved the entire Phase II building - all 23 rooms so that you all can be together and have better interiors.  The guys need to reserve early and be sure to tell the gal taking the resevation that they are with the CFD and they want Phase II.  Reserve now and cancel if you need to next year.  Thought you might put this information out on your web site. Hank has asked for March 4, 2012, for the Center, Golf will be on the 3rd....

I DON'T THINK IT CAN BE SAID BETTER!!!


ALWAYS A FIREFIGHTER


Once the badge goes on, it never comes off, whether they can see it, or not. It
fuses to the soul through adversity, fear and adrenaline and no one who has ever
worn it with pride, integrity and guts, can ever sleep through the 'call of the
wild' that wafts through bedroom windows in the deep of the night.

When Firefighters Retire

When a good firefighter leaves the 'job' and retires to a better life, many are jealous,
some are pleased and yet others, who may have already retired, wonder. We
wonder if he knows what he is leaving behind, because I already know . We know,
for example, that after a lifetime of camaraderie that few experience, it will
remain as a longing for those past times. We know in the firefighting life
there is a fellowship which lasts long after the uniforms are hung up in the
back of the closet . We know even if he throws them away, they will be on him
with every step and breath that remains in his life. We also know how the very
bearing of the man speaks of what he was and in his heart still is.

These are the burdens of the job. You will still look at people and
still see what others do not see or choose to ignore and always will look at the
rest of the firefighting world with a respect for what they do; only grown in
a lifetime of knowing. Never think for one moment you are escaping from that
life. You are only escaping the 'job' and merely being allowed to leave
'active' duty.

So what I wish for you is that whenever you ease into retirement, in your heart
you never forget for one moment that 'Blessed are the Firefighters for they shall
be called children of God,' and you are still a member of the greatest
fraternity the world has ever known.




Civilian Friends vs . Firefighter Friends

CIVILIAN FRIENDS: Get upset if you're too busy to talk to them for a week. 
FIREFIGHTER FRIENDS: Are glad to see you after years, and will happily carry on the
same conversation you were having the last time you met.

CIVILIAN FRIENDS: Have never seen you cry. 
FIREFIGHTER FRIENDS: Have cried with you.

CIVILIAN FRIENDS: Know a few things about you.. 
FIREFIGHTER FRIENDS: Could write a book with direct quotes from you.

CIVILIAN FRIENDS: Are for a while. 
FIREFIGHTER FRIENDS: Are for life.

CIVILIAN FRIENDS: Have shared a few experiences. .. 
FIREFIGHTER FRIENDS: Have shared a lifetime of experiences no citizen could ever
dream of...

CIVILIAN FRIENDS: Will take your drink away when they think you've had enough. 
FIREFIGHTER FRIENDS: Will look at you stumbling all over the place and say, 'You
better drink the rest of that before you spill it!!' Then carry you home safely
and put you to bed...

CIVILIAN FRIENDS: Will ignore this. 
FIREFIGHTER FRIENDS: Will forward this.

There are those that think they understand. And then,. . . . There are firefighters
