Thank you Port Clinton Fire Dept.

Unfortunately, I did not have the honor of meeting Firefighters Dickman and Machinski of the Toledo Fire Department.  However, from the many stories and tributes I’ve read and watched on TV, I know exactly what type of person these gentlemen were and I have no doubt their legacy will live on for decades to come.

How do I know this? For the past six years and more I’ve had the privilege of working closely, sometimes daily, with the men and women of the Port Clinton Fire Department.  As I heard and read the many stories and memorials of these two fallen heroes’ lives, I saw in these stories the faces of the members of our local fire department.
