Boston is a stones throw from Quincy, and many of our staff have deep ties to the area.We also have deep ties to the fire service, with children, in-laws, siblings, parents and co workers serving in the local fire service. So the tragic loss of two of Boston's Bravest, Lt. Edward Walsh and Firefighter Michael Kennedy hits us hard and we send our condolences and support to the families and members of BFD in these difficult times.

To honor these fallen guardians of life safety, we took a moment yesterday to pause and reflect on the dedication of the BFD and firefighters everywhere and how dangerous answering this call to duty can be.We listened to students from Berklee College, a neighbor to the fire house where Engine 33 and Ladder 15 are stationed, salute the fallen with a musical tribute.

Take a moment and listen, remember our fallen brothers, and give thanks for those who sacrafice their lives to protect us.
