We Remember Night – May 19, 2017

On May 19 at 2100, members of Ralston Vol. Fire Department and Rescue Squad, Inc. participated in “We Remember” Night in conjunction with the Firefighter Behavioral Health Alliance. Each year, over 100 first responders commit suicide. Organizations across the country have been diligently working to help reduce the suicide rate and understand the struggles first responders go through. Ralston Fire works to take care of our responders and their families, and never forget those who lost their lives.
