I was just reading the news report of the 9 Charleston, S.C. Firefighters that lost their lives Monday evening. I thank God for those that respond to our calls for help, knowing that even with the best of training and equipment, it may cost them and their families the ultimate sacrifice. We all need to be thankful for those Firefighters and keep their families and fellow Firefighters in our prayers.

I know here on irv2 there are many active and retired Firefighters that know too well the pain of this loss. To you, I salute you and thank you for your service to our communities.

I too would like to say " Thank You".

Since the war in Irac, we have moved our Thank You's from our Fire fighters and Police forces to our soldiers who are in harms way.

Bless you all.

As a 30 year Volunteer Firefighter hearing about the tragic loss of the 9 Firefighters really makes me stop and think that any call I go on could be my last. It is a very dangerous professon. All any of us can do is operate as safely as we can. There are always going to be situations that we can not be prepaired for. I think we all know this, but our desire to help our fellow man when they are in trouble outweights the danger that we face.
My thoughts and prayers are with the familes, friends, and coworkers of the 9 Firefighters that died in this tragic event.

I retired from the fire service in January of 2005 after 28 years of service. I can say that yes, I did loose friends along the way and I have seen some of my colleagues become changed for the rest of their lives due to injuries they sustained.

The tragic loss of 9 of South Carolina's finest is an event which brings focus to the fact that Firefighters dare to enter a confined hazardous space when most would turn and run.

I'm sure the story as to why these men perished is not totally written as of this point and I do have a little editorial to share with you that was passed on to me.
