Our hearts go out to all those impacted by Super Typhoon Haiyan (a.k.a. Yolanda to Filipinos). Last week the storm slammed across central Philippines causing incredible devastation to the island nation of 96 million people.
Officials estimate over 9.5 million Filipinos have been impacted by the storm and about 2 million are homeless.

This is just a great human interest story because it has a "happy" ending. My first thoughts were how could someone leave a baby in the woods to perish but then I focused on the positive aspect that God used a family pet to intervene in this child's life which allowed for a rescue. I shudder to think about what may have been but God has a plan for all our lives and this is just one more proof of that principle. (click continue to see picture) CH Ron…

To think a movable barricade could stop this nations hero's is folly.

“Be kind, for everyone you meet is fighting a hard battle.” -Plato
It has been said that everyone is either in the midst of the battle, just coming out of a battle, or about to enter the battle. As first responders we are keenly aware of this, as the tones sound, the alarms toll, the phone rings, we know we are about to enter the battle, often that of life and death. We risk all for people we have never met and will give all for those we love and…

Over the last week I have posted in upwards of 10 to 15 tributes to Police Officers due to their passing. While posting three more this morning I begin to realize a tragic coincidence. Of these officers 7 of them were under the age of 45 and out of the 10 I posted just over the last two days all of these HEROES passed of so called natural causes..I am sorry but there is nothing natural about anyone passing under the age of 45.
Over the last 5 years I have noticed that as the economy…Continue

The beginning of August I received a phone about the loss of one of our local Officers. He was running with some of his team when he collapsed. EMS was called and sadly this HERO, 44 was pronounced dead on arrival. A week or so later I was informed that because he was not "on duty" at the time of his death his family will not receive his full benefits. He was 44 years old with two young children. I was to say the least appalled.
Every year we see our HEROES fall some are not on duty,…
