Brothers and Sisters...
Today marks another sad anniversary.. it is the 4th anniversary of the Keokuk fire, which killed Assistant Cheif Dave McNally, Firefighter Jason Bitting and Firefighter Nate Tuck, 39.
Three children also died in the fire... twins Rebecca and Robert Cooper and Jessica McFarland.
Let us not forget their sacrifice to save others...."The education of a firefighter and the continued education of a firefighter is what makes "real" firefighters. Continuous skill development is the core of progressive firefighting. We learn by doing and doing it again and again, both on the training ground and the fireground."
