We would like to acknowledge and give a tip of the helmet to two of our Firehouse® contributing editors on recent appointments. Gary Ludwig, our EMS columnist, was just appointed deputy fire chief in Memphis, TN, where he will oversee the EMS Division. Billy Goldfeder, who writes the Close Calls column, was promoted to deputy chief of the Loveland-Symmes Fire Department in Ohio. Because of his extensive work on saving firefighters lives, Billy also was just named to serve on the 12-member Board of Directors of the National Fallen Firefighters Foundation. Congratulations to both!
