Today, we celebrated with the CFD family at the promotional ceremony for all of our new Battalion Chiefs, Captains, Engineers and Assistant Engineers held at the Emmett Robinson Theatre on the campus of the College of Charleston. It was a special day for those who have worked hard to advance in the department. As we sat in the audience, it was especially exciting to see all of the smiles on the faces of the friends and family members and to hear the sounds of the children. It made my heart smile as I was reminded of my earlier years. If I could offer any words to these men, it would be to be proud of what you have accomplished and to cherish every minute of this journey. This is an exciting time in your lives!
