Tonawanda Explorers are Tops in Nation

Tonawanda FD patch

The City of Tonawanda Fire Department’s (Erie County NY) Explorer Post’s motto is “Our Best Today for a Better Tomorrow.”

Their efforts have not gone unnoticed as they were recently identified as winners of a National Junior Firefighter Grant sponsored by Baskin-Robbins as announced by the National Volunteer Fire Council.

The National Volunteer Fire Council (NVFC), in partnership with the Dunkin’ Donuts and Baskin-Robbins Community Foundation, has selected 10 outstanding junior firefighter programs and Explorer Posts from departments nationwide to receive a $5,000 grant through the NVFC National Junior Firefighter Program

 The local Tonawanda News reports that the Post has a history of welcoming teens with mental and physical disabilities into the program.

Congratulations to Chief Chuck Stuart and the Tonawanda Fire Department Explorer Post for making their community proud.

Fire Departments with Junior Firefighter programs can also register their nominations for two other awards at the NVFC site.

of course just like your internet site but you need to look at the transliteration with a good number of of one's blogposts. Many of them will be filled with punctuation difficulties and I believe that it is pretty difficult to inform the certainty however I will certainly can come all over again yet again.

Destiny and Gratitude
Thank you Anna, Patrice and Erica - All of it made for one of the most memorable experiences of my career and life. In fact, as I've told this story to others since the Playback Theater I still find it difficult to wrap my head around all of it. Thanks for the opportunity to share.
