Independence Day is the day we celebrate our firefighters and communications team at Fire Station One (aka, The One House). The Community Fund provides the food and the crew does the cooking. Several neighbors dropped by as did Councilman Larken Egleston and former member of council Patsy Kinsey.
All eighteen people on duty were enormously pleased that First Ward cares enough to treat them on a holiday. Independence Day at the station has been a tradition for ten years and should continue for many more.
Morale is high and response times are great. We, in Charlotte, have one of the best Departments in the entire country. Our firefighters are well trained and highly motivated an it is a pleasure to spend time with these heroes.
