CT House and Senate vote to Approve Cancer Bill

Today the Connecticut State Senate voted 35-1 to support HB 5262 which will provide coverage to firefighters across the state who are stricken with cancer, as a result of occupational exposures to carcinogens. We cannot thank Rep. Michelle Cook enough for introducing and fighting for this legislation, as well as the other representatives and senators who supported this bill. Due to today's vote, in conjunction with the unanimous vote from the House last week, fire fighters in CT will have the backing to fight cancer and help maintain long and healthy careers.

Retirees Picnic

Our Retirees Picnic had an outstanding turnout of 30 retired members and 20 current members. This is an awesome opportunity for our retired brothers to get together and share great stories, great food, and great drinks. This is also a perfect time for our new "Probies" to hear all the stories of how it "used to be". All too often we forget those who paved the way before us. They served the city with long coats, 3/4 boots, and open cabs. They would do the job without things like a thermal imaging camera or an SCBA, things we wouldn't do the job today without. Ask a new guy about the 911 bell or where dispatch is (not LCD) and they can't answer you. These are the things that need to be passed on before they are forgotten. This party is a great way to honor the hard work of our brothers before us and remember the pride that comes with the best job in the world. And to that we say thank you for all you have taught us, enjoy the fun!!
