Respect for Our Brothers and Sisters

This past week, we all shared in the sorrow of our brothers and sisters of the Columbia Fire Department in the loss of Firefighter Chance Zobel and the serious injury of Firefighter Larry Irvin. While the events of this week bring us much sadness, they also provide a reminder that life is so very fragile and that we are all fortunate to be a part of this great organization we call the Fire Service. The outpouring of support and respect for these firefighters and their families was truly something to see as Fire Service personnel from all over South Carolina and from many other states came together to honor these men. Our thoughts and prayers will continue to go out to the entire Columbia Fire Department family in the coming days.
