HAPPY FOURTH OF JULY!
July 4th is a time to enjoy parades, family, friends, BBQ and fireworks. Whether you go to a sponsored fireworks show or have your own celebration remember to use the safe and sane fireworks.
This summer seems to by flying by already. Enjoy the day and the rest of your summer. As we have seen so far this potentially will be a very busy summer!
We live in the greatest country in the world. We celebrate the 4th of July as the birth of the United States of America.
On July 4th, 1776 the Continental Congress adopted the Declaration of Independence. This is what established our nation. Our freedom continues to be protected by the men and woman of the United States Military. While you are celebrating our nation please take a moment to reflect on those that are standing a post somewhere to make sure we continue to be a free nation. Remember those that are away from their families this holiday and others, protecting what the Continental Congress envisioned when they drafted the document that our country was founded on. Take a few more minutes to remember those that have given their life to protect our Constitution and keep us safe.
Your 1014 board will be spending our 4th of July either in the station or with our families as well. We wish everyone a happy and safe 4th.
Please remember the busy time of year is now here for us. We have to be ready to answer the call when the phone rings. Be it an overtime, recall or your 1014 board, you have to be ready.
This 4th of July (and every day) do not drink and drive. Drink responsibly. Think before you start. Get a room or use a designated driver. Unfortunately, every holiday we have members that make a poor, life changing decision. Don't be that person this year.
Remember 601 & 602 bargaining units received a small salary increase as of July 1. This will show up on your July 30th paycheck.
