Last night ten new firefighters were sworn in at a Lincoln Fire & Rescue badge-pinning ceremony. I've been to many of these graduations in the bast several decades, but this one had a nice twist. Chief John Huff and Battalion Chief Leo Benes had each firefighter introduce his family, and then invited one of the family members to do the honors. It was pretty special. Some of our new firefighters had nearly a dozen people in the audience. I kept waiting for someone to lock up and momentarily forget a brother-in-law's first name, but it never happened!
Congratulations to our newest firefighters as they begin their careers:
I moderate comments submitted to this blog. I redact profanity, inane off-topic comments, bigoted garbage, personal attacks against others, and anything else I feel like deep sixing. I let a lot of stuff through that does not reflect my own opinion or that of the City of Lincoln or the departments I manage. If you post a comment, you never know where it will go: this is all open to the public, so post at your own risk.
