Thank you and best wishes

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! circleback6@yahoo.com. Again, thank you for all that you do.🚒❤️🤙🏻 Wendy Foster
