December 22

One of the darkest dates in the Fire Service! Again, thank you Firefighterclosecalls.com for helping tell the story of 59 firefighters that died in the line of duty on this date.

I remember my Chief holding training sessions about the three firefighters killed in Keokuk, Iowa. It helped instill in me the need to review these tragedies and honor our brothers and sisters by learning what happened and working to prevent it from happening to our crews!
