Comments:  I would like to thank every firefighter out there for doing a job that is both dangerous, and difficult. Everyday we read about a firefighter injured or killed trying to save lives. I have the greatest respect for the people both men and women with the courage to undertake such a perilous job. You are my heros, every one of you.

Comments: I was in the South on Vacation when the San Diego Fires occured. When I returned, I decided to become THIRD GENERATION Firefighter here in San Diego. My Grandfather was a Captain, and my father went on to become Battlion Cheif, continueing on to teach fire science for another twenty years. I became EMT.. I passed category one.. now eligible for an interview. I was mentored for that interview by one of my fathers fellow firefighters. The San Diego Fire Department did not choose me for the position. However, I will respect an honor not only the fire department but all those whom make it possible to serve this organization. The responsibilites of the fire department and dedication to duty, make our world a better place. I am sorry I did not make it to THIRD GENERATION! It would have been an honor to serve my city an country.. and to have given back all that which was passed on to my family in years past. I honor and respect all that you do for all of us.. Thank You.. Respectfully.. David Jacobs

Anyone who would lay their life on the line like that. You have showed the true heart of America. When one of us is in need, we reach out not looking to see the color of their skin, but just reaching out to the need. Such an outpouring of compassion. I pray that we never loose the vision. That our hearts will remain tender to the heart cry for many people. God Be With All the families of the fallen ones, the firefighters and the ones they tried to save. I pray that God will Be with you and comfort you as only he can. sincerely, katherine

Comments: Dear Sir/ Madam It is to inform you that we are able to open a non-profit, non-governmental, social and registered organization “Firefighters volunteer Association of Nepal (FAN)”. It is run by the foreign aid and assistances by several donor countries and agencies. It works in the field of decreasing the effects of fire and other disasters. As our country is the developing one, we are unable to collect any amount in our fund. The condition of fire service in our country is very merciful. We are lacking several fire and rescue equipments and the ideas on it due to which even the firemen should suffer in the rescue operation. Sometimes even they have to lose their lives. We want to share the ideas and the advanced technology with you. So we are about to run a library through our organization. Please send regularly complimentary your publication books, newspapers, booklets and any other items in the related topic if you have any of them. Any way we want some help from you. Please don’t deny us. Yours sincerely, ………………………… Kewal Kumar Chapagain President, Firefighters volunteer Association of Nepal.

Comments: My father recently retired from volunteer fire service, but what does retire mean when volunteering, not much, because whenever he hears the siren or the scanner go off he still jumps out of his sleep or stops what he is doing. See, he has done this for over 40 years, and still can fight fires with the best of them. He has had many ranks within the deparment even have moved from different state and when to visit the local dept and joined without thinking about it. It was a busy city fire department with much more calls then what he was used to. I just want to thank him for being a hero not just to me, but to our community. He has seen good and bad while doing this VOLUNTEER work, that if he would of been paid for it, he says he would stop, because it is not about the money, its about helping those in need. But thanks to him, I am here today, because when I was younger I actually almost lost my life, and he was there to help me, What a dad!!! I love you!

Sometimes it seems as if the city really does not appreciate what they do for us until it directly affects them I hope this changes. Thanks to my husband and all those who serve with him.

Comments: A firefighter A firefighter. Not many people think that they are risking their lives When they take a step into a burning building to save that innocent person But who knows what’s in that building when they take a step Could it be them going to heaven? Or could it be them saving lives? No one knows, And that is what is so remarkable about firefighters. Firefighters risk their lives in order to save people that they don’t know. Brave! I would say. But who am I, you may be asking… I am just a simple person, Who is friends with many firefighters. Firefighters who love to talk about their job and how much it means to them. I believe that firefighters are not only brave… But are heroes. They may not believe it, But in my eyes and in so many other people’s eyes… Firefighters are heroes. -AA

Everyday, regardless of who they are, risk their lives to help other people; no questions asked, no matter how great the task. Most of the time they do it with a very little pay. They are dedicated to their profession and I more than proud of my father. I want to say a special thanks to him as well as other firefighters. You are truly special people.

Comments: I too am familiar with what Jen from Helendale is talking about, however, I have a whole different perspective on the matter. It's a shame that she portrays this move as a bad thing. I know for a fact that constant coverage of a Fire Station with Full Time personnel is step forward, not a step backward. Even though her Husband has 11 years of service, the FT Captains that will be replacing him have probably that many years of Full Time experience or many more. I think I will take my chances with fully trained, fully qualified CO's whose only job is the fire service, over a PCF who shows up when he can and has many other things to worry about. I'm sure he does an excellent job within his experience, and now he can do an excellent job as an PCF Engineer or PC Firefighter. I would look at this as a Service Upgrade for the citizens of Helendale. Just my thoughts. Also, I would like to thank all of you who post here. Your thoughts and prayers are greatly appreciated by all of us Firefighters whether we are Volunteers, Paid Call Firefighters or Full Time Professional Firefighters.

Recently he found out that his supervisors are bringing in Full Time Captains to do the job that he already does. These guys will be getting paid triple what he makes and he will lose his ranking and be an engineer again. It is really hard on him being treated like this. He works so hard to provide for us and he is an amazing person. The county may not appreciate him but I do and I know that our community does as well. For all of you out there that may be going through a similar situation, I keep you in my prayers and pray for the best. Thank all of you, for your support is more than apprciated.

My neighborhood and my home stand because of the unknown firefighters who saved them when the Old Fire overran Highway 18 at the Cliffhanger. "Thank you" seems so small a phrase right now.

Comments: Many of us get up each morning to go to work, fearing very little..other than traffic backlogs. As firefighters each of you go to work with greater responsibilities than anyone of us could imagine. You do this because you have a passion for your job,a true belief in human life and how precious every minute can be. You are exposed to the good, the bad and the heart break and in the end YOU DO MAKE A DIFFERENCE. I have watched you save lives , save a home right across the street. Each and everyone of you should be proud of the job you have commitmented to do for all us, the public. I ask that you remember to take time for yourselves and deal with the stresses that face you as a result of what you face and see each day and never forget through all this we do appreciate what you do! THANK YOU VERY MUCH!

Comments: I want to thank ALL FIREFIGHTERS and SUPPORT PERSONNEL, for being so brave and heroic. My husband is the Lieutenant of a Volunteer Fire Department and he loves it. He loves the rush, he loves saving people ESECIALLY SAVING PEOPLE and there MEMORIES. That means a lot to him. I was on the fire dept with him, I too love fire fighting but I was unable to make it to many calls due to us both being on and having young children, next year I'll be back on, and I can't wait to be back in it again. I can tell you though, that these MEN and WOMAN, are true Heros! I have the highest respect for them, there job is so dangerouse everyday there putting there lives on the line to save people, and to me that speaks for itself what great people they all are. My husband is a wondeful fire fighter, I admire him more than he'll ever realize its scary though, worrying about him, worried if he's ok while he's on the calls, wondering if he's going to come home from this call, all I can say is I do a lot of praying each time he's called out. These fire fighters really do a lot more than just physical work but a lot of mental work too, there just as affected by devestation as the people going threw it, my husband comes home very depressed whenever something goes bad, is affected for a long time from it, so I do want to say thank you to each and everyone of you for saving us all, you deserve more than you could ever get from anyone. There is just no way to thank you all enought! GOD BLESS AND STAY SAFE!TRAIN, TRAIN, TRAIN!!! xxx Christina P.

Comments: For all of our country's Hero's: Not one single person can put into words our gratitude towards each and everyone of the Fire Fighter, Police Officers, Rescue Squad, and other Hero's set out to help people in need! No number of medals or awards of honor, can compare to the courageous, brave and wonderful things you do everyday! I myself want to personally thanks each and everyone of you for the decisions and choices you make. When they say Fire Fighters run back into a burning building and everyone else is running out, it's not just because it's your job, you do it because you want to help other and so you deserve everyone's blessing! You devote your lives to saving ours and that means more to me than any award, medal or pay check can do! I For one have always wanted to help people and there is no other better way to do so then to go out and risk my life to save many others that deserve to live just as well as you and me! That's why I'm writing this I have been inspired by many to go out and help in any way I can! Everyone deserves to be recognized not just he people who have saved someone but even the people who are out here to make the world a better and safer place to live! So more than anything thanks, thanks for all you do!

The fireman on that tragic day suffered my loss as much as my daughter and family. They risked there lives to save the children and did save two of the four in the home along with my daughter. However they don't only fight fires, I have a 6yr. old at home who had a seizure and stopped breathing, it was the fire department that saved my 6yr old, I thank God everyday they are right across the street. These men and women diserve Medals of Honor just as our service men. They are fighting wars of tragedy and fires of death every day. I thank them from the bottom of my heart.

Comments: I want to say thank you to all firemen. My boyfriend has finished his FireI and FireII certification as well as his EMT, he has worked so hard to accomplish this and yet he still can not find a job. Although he is discouraged I know that he will be a great Fireman and he is already my hero. Without these brave men and women the world would be consumed by tragedy. Thank you for all that you do, I know it is hard work but you touch the lives of hundreds.

Comments: There is alot of beautiful thank yous on this page and I would like to add that these wonderful firefighters are there for us no matter how big or small the circumstance. I thanked our local firefighters with several dozen cookies after the "OLD FIRE" which was so minor on my part. They deserve rewards daily. It would be nice for everyone to periodically take them some cookies or ice cream or cake or something nice to ALWAYS remember them and say thank you a million times. They are exceptional and are definately my heros. I love all firefighters!!!! Instead of actors getting hundreds of thousands of dollars for movies they make, they should get a fair salary and the firefighters should make the millions!!!!!!!!!!!!!Please continue to thank them year round.

Firefighters from the Mentone area were able to save our neighbors home, but ours was just too far gone to save. We spent the next two weeks thanking every firefighter we could. They came from all over the United States of America! We LOVE all of our firefighters and thank them with all our hearts for all the homes they saved that day ... and everyday! God bless you all.

Everyday I look out my back windows and see devestation, a complete neighborhood that was burned to the ground. I see people come back to what used to be their home and I feel VERY sad for them. Luckily, our community is strong and rebuilding is on it's way! I thank you soooo much for all your efforts!! May God be with all of you during the fire season to come!

He spent a week on the fire as a Strike Team Leader. We thank god for each day he returns to us. On another note the Hesperia Fire District may not be part of Hesperia's tradition for much longer - seems as though the Council would rather contract for service? Show your support for the firefighters on April 7th, 2004 by keeping them together! Come to the Council meeting. Thank you

Many of us lost our homes, but many more would have lost much more if it wasn't for your dedication and unbelievable bravery. My husband and I had just bought our first home very near waterman canyon, when the fires hit our area. Thanks to all of you, our dreams were spared. Words could never express the feeling of gratitude we feel for all those who worked so hard to protect our wonderful city. Thank you all so very much. God Bless You All!!!!

Comments: People often thank me and praise me for the work I do as a Special Education teacher,but firefighters are the brave ones. I can't stand when it is 90 degrees out and it has to be so difficult to withstand the intense heat you battle all to save somebody or something that may not have personal value to you.

A special note from the Webmaster of IncidentControl.com.......
I have spent a great deal of time during the past few years on photos and stories about wildfires and must say that I am proud to live in this community and to have met so many professional people willing to risk theirs lives to protect us and never once heard one of them complain about the job they were doing.

From Caltrans workers manning a gate hours on end without a break in blistering heat, to firefighters standing all day watching for burning embers or the firefighters climbing on terrain that is made for big horn sheep, I have not ever heard a complaint!

Residents wish to thank ALL Firefighters, the Forest Service, Federal, State and County workers, companies, individuals and volunteers who have ALL contributed so much in protecting us.
