Speaking on “Suburban Firefighting,” Chief Jim Silvernail of the City of Kirkwood, Missouri Fire Dept, captivated the audience of approximately 400 firefighters, at yesterday’s 17th Annual Lt. Andy Fredericks Seminar.
Our thanks to all those firefighters who attended and especially those who regularly support our seminar, as well as Chief Silvernail for a great presentation.
Proceeds of each seminar are given to four designated charities: the Lt. Andy Fredericks Scholarship Fund, the Lt. Tyler Rush Scholarship Fund, the New York State Firemen’s Home and Burncare Everywhere.
Andy’s company, FDNY Squad 18, was on hand, as always, to sell T-shirts and support the cause.
Also in attendance was FDNY Battalion 19, Engine Co. 75 and Ladder Co. 33 to sell memorial T-shirts for Deputy Chief Michael Fahy, recently killed in the line of duty; proceeds going to Chief Fahy’s family.
Finally, a big thank you to our Membership and Ladies Auxiliary for making this day another huge success.
Great job done by all!!!
From the Chiefs and the Seminar Committee….
