Van Tassel Anniversary

April 3rd is the anniversary of the Van Tassel explosion that took the lives of four of our members. We use this time every year to reflect on the members that we have lost in the line of duty. As much as we love this job and our service to the city, it cannot be forgotten that there is a constant danger that goes along with it. We thank everyone for their support and we will continue to serve with the utmost consideration for safety and professionalism.
