TERRYVILLE, Conn. — A dozen Terryville volunteer firefighters shaved their heads to show support to a young girl battling cancer.
According to Eyewitness News 3, Terryville Volunteer Fire Department firefighters shaved their heads to show support to the daughter of one of their own, who is battling cancer.
The fire department exhibited their new 'do' on a Facebook video with a note stating: "Brotherhood has no borders and we are always here for each other no matter where they are from. Brotherhood isn't about just the firefighter, but about their family too."
When Thomaston and Northfield firefighters heard what the Terryville Fire Department was doing, they also joined the effort and shaved their heads.
Brotherhood isn’t something that everyone outside of the fire service understands. Its not a characteristic, it’s not a value, it can’t be taught...but it is something that the fire service honors and it’s a bond that can’t be broken. Brotherhood has no borders and we are always here for each other no matter where they are from. Brotherhood isn’t about just the firefighter, but about their family too. If something ever happens we all know our families will be taken care of by the brotherly bond. When times get tough, we all step up to make it a little better. Tonight, brotherhood was on display. Fellow firefighters from Thomaston Volunteer Fire Department and Northfield Volunteer Fire Company joined us for haircuts to raise some money for one of our own, who’s daughter is courageously battling an illness. Jordan- we are all here for you, we are with you every step of the way, and we can’t wait to until you beat this!!Posted by Terryville Volunteer Fire Department on Monday, July 22, 2019
