On January 25th, the Manhattan Beach Firefighters in California, hosted the sendoff of the FireCareers- 9/11 Patch Project Bus. This national tour is about spreading awareness of the fact 10 years has almost gone by since the 9/11 tragedy, to recruit fire departments to wear on of the 9/11 Patches and to raise funds that will be donated in Manhattan (NY) at the end of the tour. Here is a CBS news clip of the sendoff http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gPq1BaiRgNQ

The enlarged patches in the video, came off the 9/11 Rose Float that was featured in the Rose Parade on January 1st this year, in Pasadena. Jerry Thomsen of LACoFD and his wife Merrie made this happen. The NEVER FORGET torch was passed from Jerry to the Firecareers-9/11 Patch Bus in this ceremony.

Fire Departments in California, Arizona, Nevada, Utah and Idaho have hosted tour stops so far. Here is a video link to a Channel 11 news story from the stop recently in Jerome, Idaho: http://www.kmvt.com/news/local/9-11-...118717379.html

We are asking for everyone's support to help the bus complete the tour and raise funds for the FDNY Bravest Scholarship Fund, Terry Fund and the Feal Good Foundation. Get you name and/or logo on the side of the bus by following this link: http://www.9-11patchproject.org/sponsorships.html
