Today we attended the unveiling of a statue honoring 150 years of volunteer fire service in the city of Golden, Colorado. The department started at roughly the same time as the Coors Brewery and the School of Mines both here in Golden. The department is now a hybrid department with mostly paid professional firefighters with an additional volunteer crew. EMS is provided by an outside agency.

"The detail is amazing right down to the stitching on their turnout gear and the air packs." - Brian Curry
