Remembering fallen firefighters and keeping those on the job safe--San Antonio's Fire Chief is taking the effort to the national level.
Chief Charles Hood has been appointed to the Board of Directors of the National Fallen Firefighters Foundation--which does more than just remember those who died in the line of duty.
"One of the most dangerous careers is being a firefighter--so--a lot of things the National Fallen Firefighters Foundation does is firefighter safety and improving the safety of firefighters around the country" Hood told 550 KTSA News.
The Natinal Fallen Firefighters Memorial is in Maryland. Here in San Antonio, the Chief recently unveiled a memorial at the fire training academy--with the names of 28 local firefighters who died in the line of duty.
