Back to the Basics

Comments: 0

Well I have to apologize for all of the interested readers out there who enjoy the history of the fire service. I have been busy with a lot of things. As you can read on here I have been busy in trying to keep Fire Station #1 open. I think that this has everything to do with our history.
I have been busy with the MDA also. We have the cookout Wednesday August 3rd (everyone is welcome) go to for more information. I also have to get going on the Fill the Boot Campaign for this year. As always we are not allowed doing it on duty or at the intersections. We will need all of the help we can get. Check out the MDA page of for information on this soon.
I have also been busy with the RFFA’s new website. If you haven’t checked it out, you should soon. Our site is easily the best site in Virginia (among the locals). Of course I might have a biased opinion.
We also have the basketball game coming up on Friday August 5th. Check out for more information.
I have spoken with a lot of people recently in reference to RFFA’s stance on certain subjects, what the local is doing about this and that, and why certain things are happening. I do not mind answering questions here and there, but I am not going to recite the entire meeting every time someone wants to know what is going on. It is your responsibility as a Union member to attend the meetings. It seems as though a lot of you all are interested, I just do not understand why you can’t attend 1 meeting a month. I know you work 2 jobs, so do I and I manage to make it there most of the time. There are a lot of things happening at the Union Hall and within the Local, these things would happen faster if we had more people there to help us. Thanks for all that everyone does with MDA. I look forward to seeing you all out there on Wednesday.
