When firefighters are periled, they place their lives second to those they protect. They are forced to face their own fears and grasp for every ounce of courage to perform the necessary task. “The Thin Red Line of Courage” represents the last ounce of courage firefighters find deep in their blood to conquer their darkest fears in order to save and protect life and property. It is displayed to show respect for firefighters injured and killed in the line of duty.

I grew up in a town of volunteer firefighters including my father and brother.  Now, I have several friends who are active or retired firefighers.  Many have suffered injuiries such as fallling through roofs.   We had a house fire when I was a teen; which just adds an extra thanks to the firefighters everywhere.
