343.  On this day, 15 years ago,  there were 343 firefighters that lost there lives at the World Trade Center.  No matter what your political feelings about that day, it was one of the worst days here on our home soil.  These firefighters and other public safety personnel gave their lives for the hundreds of innocent people that were stuck in those towers.  The quote “we will never forget” was then seen on bumper stickers and tattoos all over.  The problem is that many have forgotten.  Many in the public have forgotten what possibly can happen to our public safety personnel and I think many of our public safety personnel have forgotten what we are called to do.  The job of a public safety person is to save and protect you.  You should demand the best from them but dont forget what they might have to give for you.  And those in the field, you MUST give them your best.  Yes we have many things we “need” to do each day but THE MOST IMPORTANT THING is to make sure you are physically ready for the worst day of your career and able to handle and type of incident you have.  Please make sure you do whatever you can to make sure you are ready for when the “call gods” call!  NEVER FORGET WHAT YOUR JOB IS REALLY ABOUT!!!! FEEL THE BURN!!!!!
