This morning IAFF Local F-121 President proudly presented Michael Smith the International Association of Firefighters Leadership Award on behalf of District Vice President Jim Johnson.
Mike took on the monumental task of correcting the financial tail spin the Local was in. He immediately went to work devoting countless hours ensuring our Local met its fiscal responsibilities. Without his intervention the Local would have crashed and burned.
Through his effort, time and energy our Local made a miraculous turn around.
Mike you have restored faith in our Local leadership and proven we are here for the right reasons. You have placed our Local in a position to fight for safety, health, security and welfare of our fellow brother and sister firefighters for years to come.
We are extremely proud and thankful of your dedication to such a great labor organization.
Quint 46 and Rescue Engine 47 took in a small fire on Prince George St in downtown Annapolis last night. Quint 46 as the first arriving engine placed an attack line in service and made quick work of a small fire in a utility closet before it could extend further into the structure, units from Annapolis and Anne Arundel County Fire Departments arrived and assisted deploying additional attack lines and began opening up the walls and multiple layers of flooring. Rescue Engine 47 arrived as part of the working fire dispatch and after initially being assigned Rapid Intervention, was reassigned by command to relieve first arriving crews. After ensuring the fire was completely extinguished command began releasing units and crews from NSA Annapolis returned to service within two hours of dispatch. Currently the cause of the fire is believed to be electrical, Annapolis Fire Department is still investigating. ... See MoreSee Less
