It didn't take the fire department long after seeing the fire truck and the response the women of their community had, to understand how great a project this is for their community. I am already in the works to get them the art so they can get their shirt made and ready for next year. They are a proactive fire department and I am sure glad that Mark Woolbright suggested I stop in and see them.
On my way to Topeka we made a special stop at Shawnee Mission Fire Department, a suburb of Kansas City, they to took a liking to the event and already are printing up their shirts. Tim Cordin a Phoenix Fire Engineer traveled with us a week and set up our special visit to these great folks.
Chris Torres from Las Cruces, who has been traveling with us the entire time, is a natural in front of the camera, he has been a very important part of this journey.
