As I have in the past, I am posting some tribute badges to honor those who died, and lived, as a result of the 9/11 terrorist attack. Let's hope we never again have to experience the horrors of that day.
Friends of The Denver Fire Department, the Denver Fire Fighters Burn Foundation, and the Denver Fire Department Wellness Program present the 5th annual Fit for Fire 5K walk/run/kids’ Siren Scamper fun run on Sunday, September 14 at Wash Park.
The Denver Fire Department in cooperation with the National Fallen Firefighters Foundation has posted a documentary on YouTube dealing with th eline of duty deaths of Bob Crump, Charlie Drennan Jr. and Rich Montoya.
