Hi, I am Rich Dean of Butler NJ USA. a 25 year member of the Kinney Hose Co. 1 of Butler Fire Dept. (volunteers since 1902) <www.fire-ems.net/firedept/view/Butler2NJ> and have been employed as a telecommunicator (dispatcher) for the Borough of Butler Public Safety & Public Works/Utilities Comm Center for over 23 years. Since 1980 I have had the honor of being the recording secretary for the five county NorthJersey Vol. Firemen's Association <members.aol.com/njvfa>. Good luck on this new venture by Firehouse Magazine, which I am sure will be successful just as I was sure when I became a charter
subscriber back in 1976 when Firehouse was
first started up by Dennis Smith.
