If the fire service wants to remain relevant at the federal level, we’ll need a strong, vibrant and effective federal agency with the ability to grow, explore and create rather than contract. We should all think about that as we approach 2013 and the 40th anniversary of America Burning. Congress and the administration will continue to scrutinize federal programs and agency budgets for cuts or elimination. This is a town where the squeaky wheel gets the grease. We should apply our collective efforts in 2013 to providing as much grease as possible to USFA; otherwise, the 40th anniversary will come and go with little to celebrate.
