These guys have been serving our community longer than I've been alive. Back in the day, there was a sense of emotional fulfillment that came with belonging to this brotherhood of public servants. It was never about money. The camaraderie within the FD back in the day, was much more pleasant than it is now. The men pictured here are my heroes...and over the years, they've been heroes to thousands of others. I've learned so much from each and every one of them because they teach and lead from their experiences. They are pure strength. They offer hope when all else has failed. They deserve our utmost respect. Thank you for posting this picture. I love them all.
That's Ex-Chief George Laakso, not Dick Grover who wasn't even there.
Great group of men. My condolences on their loss of Rodney.
Such a great group of gentlemen
That is ex chief George Laakso not Mr. Grover

A lovely tribute to one of the nicest men I have ever known.
You were so loved, Rod, and made the world a better place.
