The 51st

Congratulations to the newest members of The Providence Fire Department!

The 51st

The graduates:

“Every person who raises their right hand and takes the oath of office is from that day forward until the day they die a firefighter.

While never forgetting who we were before, we know that we will never be the same. It is an honor to belong in the fire service, not only because of who we are, but also because of those who came before us, and wore the uniform well, worked, lived and sometimes died doing the job.

At the end of the day, when the smoke has cleared, and the fires are out, and we make it home, we can rest easy, knowing that others like us are on duty, keeping things safe.

We know this because we live it, every second of every day, for life.  –  Michael Morse, Captain, Rescue Co. 5, (ret.) 1991-2016, 42nd Academy
