I remeber I was talking on-line to a firefighter from central NY when he asked me if I had heard what happend over in Mass. I looked at firehouse web page and was shocked to see what had happend. Only a few things can make me cry, that was one. I also remeber marching down that cold street in Worcester with 30,000 other firefighters and emergency personal. It was something I will never forget. The people of worcester were also amazing. I couldnt hold back my tears when I saw the little kids holding signs saying "thank you firefighters" and many other things. I will never forget the Worcester fire department and their tragity. Welcome home brothers, 5-5-5-5

I believe all of us in the Fire Service can sum up our feelings about this tragedy in one word, Heartbroken. It is a terrible thing to have happen to any of our fellow brothers. May God watch over the souls of our fellow brothers and may they forever rest in peace. 3-3-5.

Tonight my department had an RIT drill there were six FD's on scene, You could tell that every one there tonight had the thoughts of what happend in Worcester on there mind. We used this tragedy as a teaching toll to see what we can learn from it so we can prevent something like this from happening

Thats the only probelm with this job. A life could be lost so FAST it's not funny. You fear for the person your trying to save you kinda forget about yourself. You just hope you get that person whoever it is out.

All I remember is that I was on vacation, and I was stuck in front of the TV for most of the night and all I watched was the news for hours on end.
To the fallen 6, lets never forget.
If you sent us to HELL, WE'D PUT IT OUT!!

I was at home watching the local news eith Barbie & Ken, then it switched over to the national news and I saw the story. It was one of the few things that has ever really hurt me.
Prayers for the departed,
