Worcester Cold Storage Fire
Can you believe it's been 9 years already?
I was on the air at night back then, and I got a call from the diner next to the fire...
I heard the alarms that firefighters were lost inside...
It's not a good sound.
9 years ago tonight, we lost 6 very brave men... and if they had it to do all over again, they would!
That's the job.
We always hear about 'Homeland Security', and 'First Responders'...
Well, 9 years ago tonight, we lost 6 of the best!
On the bright side, 9 years ago, Denis Leary started his Fire Fighter Foundation...
He's done so much good, both here in Massachusetss and around the country.
Denis along with his staff, and your donations, has done things that they shouldn't have to do...
Things that should already be taken care of with our tax dollars.
In this time of economic panic...
Just remember who's lives are on the line the next time a fire starts!
It's you that they are protecting, so why cut the funding to the people that protect you?
Remember what happened 9 years ago tonight!
