We are a fire department family. I am a retired Fire Chief. My wife works for FEMA and with fire departments across the USA. One of our sons is a firefighter.

Beginning this month, my wife and I will bicycle across America -- one fire station at a time.
We ride to honor America’s heroes, our firefighters.
