In the line of duty

Suffice it to say that public safety is an inherently dangerous line of work.  Nobody dwells on it. These people do their jobs and accept risk for what it is – part of the package. They train for it, they plan for it, and they make things as safe as possible.

And sometimes tragedy strikes.

A firefighter was killed and a two injured fighting a fire in San Francisco yesterday.

As the City family navigates the difficult days ahead we will all remember the sacrifice of those in service and stand with them as they continue to do their jobs even as they grieve the loss of one of their own.

Our hearts are heavy and our thoughts are with the families of the fallen and our colleagues at the SFFD.
