Denver firefighters opened their doors and their hearts to share painful lessons to help improve firefighter safety across the country and around the world. The National Fallen Firefighters Foundation (NFFF) has released Denver Fire Department: Leadership So Everyone Goes Home, a documentary highlighting the department's efforts to make improvements after the tragic loss of three Denver firefighters over a six-year period.
The documentary, produced by STATter911 Communications in association with Greg Guise Media and PC Productions, focuses on the line-of-duty-deaths of Firefighter Robert Crump in 2000, Assistant Chief Charles Drennan Jr. in 2001 and Lt. Richard Montoya in 2006. Members of the department, from the rank of firefighter up to the fire chief, share their insights into the loss of these three men and talk about other incidents where Denver firefighters have been seriously injured.
From the National Fallen Firefighters Foundation, "Charleston 9: The Ultimate Sacrifice", looks at the dramatic changes made in the operations of South Carolina's Charleston Fire Department following the deaths of nine firefighters on June 18, 2007. The video, produced by STATter911 Communications and Greg Guise Media, focuses on how the leadership of the late Chief Tom Carr helped the department recover after such a devastating loss.
