MONROE COUNTY, FL – Monroe County Fire Rescue (MCFR) Deputy Chief RL Colina attended the Executive Fire Officer program at the National Fire Academy (NFA) in Emmitsburg, MD, in April. While attending the program, he was honored to be selected to deliver the flags of fallen firefighters who lost their lives last year to the National Fire Academy Chapel in preparation for the official National Fallen Firefighters Memorial ceremony that took place May 6-7.
“It was an extremely humbling moment in my 26 years as a firefighter," said Colina. "As a member of Monroe County Fire Rescue, it was an honor to be selected for such an important ceremonial process for our fallen Brothers and Sisters. We shall never forget!"
MCFR Captain Cassy Cane was also in attendance at the ceremony. She was at the National Fire Academy as a SAFER grant review board panelist.
