One summer night when I was ten years old, my older brother woke me to investigate the lights, sirens and commotion that was happening at the house across the street - my best friend's house. I watched the emergency services rushing in and out for over an hour, with each face projecting emotions of defiance, hope, patience and eventually acceptance. In the end, there was nothing that could be done - my best friend and his family perished in the fire that day.
The heroics of everyone involved in that emergency call-out, however, have always stayed with me - and my brother, who's now a firefighter himself.
To pay our respects to all the folks who work so hard and witness such untold heartache, we'd like to provide this exclusive offer only available to emergency services personnel and their friends & families
