Jim has passed, but he left us with a very strong legacy.
Retired and Active FireFighters of The Los Angeles County Fire Department
From our first days as Los Angeles County Fire Department, recruit firefighters, we knew we were part of a very special organization. The people we worked with were proud to be L.A. County FireFighters, and they expected us to be proud too - and grateful for the opportunity to join the organization. You could hear guys complain about things (after all, it's a fire department). But those same guys often could be heard saying, "This is a great job." Most important, nobody ever seemed to quit unless they were killed, injured or retired. A lot of the guys that did leave the job to try something else, were often reapplying to get back on the job.
After retirement we were at odds end as to how to contact all our retired friends. We did have area breakfasts, mostly in the battalion or division that we worked in. They were held once a month, and if you forgot, you missed out until the next one.
