Yesterday some of our members participated in the 9/11 memorial stair climb at FDIC. Each member climbed the equivalent of the 110 flights of stairs of the World Trade Center as tribute to the 343 FDNY fire fighters lost on that tragic day. ... See moreSee less

Impressive! Thanks for keeping us safe.

Thank you for your commitment!

This is the true meaning of “Community”. I have met and worked side by side with many of the FF of our great community. I have also been a parent of a kid involved in an accident and had them be the First Responders. I have been the patient pucked up off the floor after falling off a 12 foor ladder and could not help myself! I can say from every aspect of “Community” what these fine individuals mean to our city! Years ago my kids baked cookies and dropped them at the station just to say “thanks”. Just because. They were gracious! I don’t know that they hear it enough. Thank you!!!

WFD is terrific!

Thank you so much for taking care of our community 🙏

Touching memorial

God Bless them 1 and all stay safe

There are no words to express what that means to your community! Thank you for all your hard work, sacrifices and dedication! Much love to you all!
