NEW 01/14: SPECIAL UPDATE!

After recovering from the shock I received looking at his web site today,

I want to offer a very special congratulations and a "WELL DONE!"

to C-O-MM's very own Lt. Britt Crosby and his wonderful

wife Dispatcher Robyn Crosby on their upcoming, and yes, very

unexpected retirement from the department on January 21, 2011.

It is safe to say that Britt and Robyn have been and continue to be

outstanding ambassadors of the fire service and have

gone above and beyond in serving their community and department. In addition,

Britt's passion for the fire service, and Robyn's patience with his passion,

are evident in the amazing web site CapeCodFD.com that Britt has

owned and operated for over 10 years. From being a "pioneer" as a

paramedic on the Cape to his coverage of FD happenings all across

Cape Cod and southeastern MA, many people have benefited from

his endless dedication to "the Job!" Britt and Robyn's departures after a

combined 63 years of service will leave two very large voids to fill. You will both

be missed yet you have truly earned this great achievement!

Congratulations my friends from MassFireTrucks.com!!!

Special Note:

Sunday September 11, 2011 marked the 10th Anniversary of the Attacks On America

on September 11, 2011. Please remember the thousands of innocent Americans

who perished that day, the incredible efforts of the First Responders

who gave their lives trying to save others, the Ground Zero

rescue teams who worked for days, weeks and months at their

own peril looking first for survivors and later to bring home those lost,

and all of our men and women in the Armed Forces who

have been fighting to protect our Nation's freedoms ever since, especially

those who have made the ultimate sacrifice. We pause to reflect on

the memories and service of all these Americans, and we

ask God to Bless them, their families left behind, and all of us.

God Bless America!
