Patrick is a professional firefighter that has dedicated himself to helping others in their time of need. He started off as a volunteer firefighter and was eventually hired on as a full time paid firefighter. He has had a rough go of it the last few months. After being out of work for an ankle injury and using up all his sick and vacation time, he then tore his ACL in a non-fire department incident. Due to Patrick going under the knife and not being able to work much less walk, he had no way to pay his bills. He is not elgible for our sick leave sharing program either. If you know any firefighters then you know there is a true brotherhood amongst us. When one of us is sick or injured, we are all sick or injured. We are trying to collect a few dollars to help keep Patrick going in the right direction because he will be out of work until at least August. Any amount helps.....big or small. If you cannot afford to donate please share so we can get his story out there. Thanks for your support.
