The First Responders. Tony and his wife have been together for 30 years now. They have three children. They have the same values and beliefs and that is what keeps them together. Along with Jesus Christ. He is their glue. We want to honor those who need it most. The brave men who gave so much to help innocent lives and who would do it again if asked. They are true heroes. If we can honor them and raise support for them, then we have been successful. Our journey has brought us ,so far, many wonderful caring people that we never would have met if not for the Fire Truck. That alone is a blessing. Thank you.
