Puck the bear had a morning of travel filled with #SouthwestAirlines love! Welcomed to his flight by attendants Stephanie, Jason and Adrian, flight 639 from Orlando to Columbus was a total #LUV experience. Pilots James Roach and Karen Hill commanded a smooth flight. A nice surprise was introduction to #Brutus at baggage claim by agents Stephanie and Kim. Puck is resting up for tomorrow’s festivities at #TheSchottensteinCenter. Come out for some exciting hockey for charity.

Fire Fighter Cancer Foundation, Inc.

#FirefighterDecon #florida #legislationIt is fitting that January 14th was the start of the 2020 Florida Legislative season, and there is another important firefighter measure making its way through the process this year. Local senator Aaron Bean introduced SB 1092, which creates the Firefighter Cancer Decontamination Equipment Grant Program. In summary, “The Program is created within the division to help protect the health and safety of firefighters in this state. The program shall provide financial assistance to help fire departments, including volunteer fire departments, procure equipment, supplies, and educational training designed to mitigate exposure to hazardous, cancer-causing chemicals.”
Florida firefighters are proud to have the continued support of legislators and state Fire Marshal/CFO Jimmy Patronis in keeping all firefighters safe from dangerous toxins. It takes a strong financial commitment from all cities, counties, and the state to ensure that departments have the proper decontamination equipment, washers/dryers, and a second set of clean dry gear to reduce these exposures. “Clean Gear is the New Badge of Honor.”
