Always in Service

THANK YOU TO ALL THE FIRST RESPONDERS WHO HAVE HELPED DURING HURRICANE HARVEY AND HURRICANE IRMA!

Always in service was the theme for National EMS Week (May 2017) and could not have captured recent events more appropriately. This has truly been an unusually difficult start to the school year for many of our customers across Texas, Florida and Georgia as they have dealt with the devastation and loss of home, schools and communities caused by the hurricanes. There were so many stories of the tireless work by the first responders who placed themselves in harm's way to help their fellow citizens. I want to give a special shout out to the responders in Jacksonville, one of whom swam into my son's apartment building to tell everyone to stay calm and not to leave! Pretty funny thinking about a fireman swimming to the rescue. THANKS!!

Warrior Sailing

If you know a veteran that you think could benefit from facing a new challenge on the water, please check out the warrior sailing program. No prior experience is required. They hold a series of classes during the year and participate in races like the ones that will be held at the Annapolis Yacht Club in October. According to Jen French, the founder of Warrior Sailing, "Military veterans and active duty personnel who have been diagnosed with a disability are welcome to participate in the Warrior Sailing Program. Among the 250 participants about 75 percent suffer from post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) or some type of brain injury. Participants range in age from 19 to 80." In a news article announcing the event at Annapolis, French stated, "We're not just taking them for boat rides. We're teaching them the sport of sailing. By and large, they've never been on a sailboat before. To learn more about the Warrior Sailing Program, please see WarriorSailing.org.
