Today, on International Firefighters Day, we thank you for all that you do. I know that many times people don’t “circle back“ to thank you, but as someone whose life was forever changed by Henderson 99, please know that you leave an imprint on the lives that you touch, and we do not forget that impact.
It is because of that experience that I started circleback6.com, a blog for citizens to thank their First Responders. We also have a photo gallery for First Responders to share their pictures. Today, it would be awesome for you to send in your crew pics so that we can celebrate you. Don’t be humble! Or, please let me know if I can use one of your Facebook pics! email@example.com.
Again, thank you for all that you do.🚒❤️🤙🏻
President Joe Andriole and Lobbyist Paul Valletta Jr. was able to secure some much needed PPE supplies for our members. RISAFF would like to thank General Secretary/Treasurer Armand Sabitoni of Laborers' International Union, Mike Sabitoni, President of the R.I. Building Trade Union and Local 251 of the R.I. Laborers Union for securing much needed N95 respirators and protective gowns for Rhode Island's Fire Fighters and Emergency Services personnel.
We also would like to thank John Furtado of A.A. Asbestos Abatement Co. in Johnston for donating protective coveralls. These critical protective items have been distributed and are in use.
Our Fire Fighters benefiting from this generous donation thank you all!
Thanks Joe for all your efforts on this... Great Idea and I too am pursuing this approach with our State AFL-CIO in hopes that our trades can help out our 1st responders in getting some PPEs. Keep you posted. Great Talking with you today! Stay Safe Brother!
Thank you gentlemen for the much needed equipment.

Thank you to the Town of East Greenwich and Chief Patenaude for purchasing a UV-C Air & Surface Disinfection Lamp. The light kills all known bacteria & virus in less than 2 minutes. It takes only 30 seconds to kill the Corona Virus on the surface @egreenwichnews @risaff
