Our mission is to honor the service and sacrifice of public safety heroes who give their lives in the line of duty - by caring for the loved ones they leave behind.

A little fun on this Friday - yet another example of how our public safety officers never know what emergency they will be called to help with next...

All parties were pulled to safety in this situation, including the rainbow unicorn!

For two weeks, 40 Kentucky firefighters assisted in fighting the wildfires in Yosemite National Park. They have all returned home safely, but those who are available will return to help again soon as there are still many fires to fight out west.

"Everyone is so thankful that you're there. Even just stopping at a gas station, so many people came up and were like 'Thank you for saving our houses.’ They want to give you a hug and shake your hand,” Chief Forester and Squad Boss Kristian Pickering said.

Our thoughts and prayers are with the thousands of firefighters working tirelessly to put out these fires, their families and the people who live in the affected areas.

Congratulations to our friends at Bowling Green (KY) Fire Department for achieving Reaccredited Agency status from the Commission on Fire Accreditation International (CFAI). We know they work very hard to provide the highest quality service to their citizens and that they are very deserving of this great honor!
