Today we remember our fallen brothers. I share with you the dedication in the 4th IFSTA essentials manual.
Dedication
...is dedicated to the members of that unselfish organization of men and women who hold devotion to duty above personal risk, who count on sincerity of service above personal comfort and convenience, who strive unceasingly to find better ways to protecting the lives, homes and property of their fellow citizens from the ravages of fire and other disasters...
I believe this also applies to Officer Rupert Pete who protected and served his community everyday.
This devotion comes from an unselfish spirit and a heart FULL of unconditional love. I love and pray for you all.
