With all going on with Fire, Smoke, Covid, etc. these past weeks in Northern California, find time to say “Thank You” to a First Responder.

“You don’t need them, until you need them”

After all these years, I still cannot get out of my mind those brave FireFighters, Police and all First Responders walking up the stairs of the World Trade Center on 9/11.  Their commitment to “Serve and Protect” is unwavering.

On this Labor Day and on All Days, Honor them, Respect them and say Thank You to them.

Firefighter’s Prayer

When I am called to duty, God wherever flames may rage,

give me strength to save a life, whatever be its age.


Help me to embrace a little child before it’s too late,

and quickly and efficiently to put the fire out.


I want to fill my calling and to give the best in me,

to guard my neighbor and protect his property.


And if according to your will I have to lose my life,

bless with your protecting hand my loving family from strife.


With Honor and Respect – Steve Gerbsman, Director Kentfield Fire District
