Dear FireRescue1 Member, 

As we gather with family and friends this holiday season, let us pause for a moment to appreciate our incredible support systems, while also reflecting on how we can improve and prioritize these relationships. In today’s newsletter: 

I hope you’re able to make the most of your time with your family and friends this holiday season. 

Stay safe and take care.
