Proud moment for the Homewood Fire Department. Today Firefighter Patton graduated from the Alabama Smokediver Program at the Alabama Fire College.

B-Shift had the privilege of being invited to enjoy lunch with the residents of Skyline Village. The residents also presented the crews with a gift card for Christmas dinner. They had a flag pole that needed a new Lanyard that L-4 was able to replace and hoist a new flag for them. It was great getting to see the residents today and the happiness of the veterans as the flag was raised.
