  • All Firefighter Nationwide...Special Notice

    Hon. President G.W.Bush Has decided to REMOVE funding of the FIRE Act, which effects EVERY One of Us. It is imperative that we all send letters to him asking him to reconsider this decision. I am asking that you all, your family members,friends and supporters of Firefighters send this letter as Soon as Possible.
    This is a major funding that will benefit all of us nation wide as well as helping local communities in offsetting cost of running fire service. We are this nations First Line of Support in most Emergency situations.

    Thank You

    Please go to Link below for a copy of letter which can be mailed by anyone.

    Letter to President Bush

    Would someone who has the "I Wish" poem in their hard drive please send it to Mr.Bush?

      President Bush's E-mail address is [email protected]
      Thought it might come in handy, I have written President Clinton on that before and got a reply via US Mail, so it should work.
