Hockey is something that many people enjoy. When you go to a game you are protected by an elite group of men, women and K9 Public Safety personal and law enforcement keep us safe and save those injured. Some see unimaginable things in the course of their day. And some, like a hockey player suffering the long-term effects of a concussion, find the pain unbearable. To all who stand on guard for us, we thank you.
As we continue to enjoy the best season in franchise history, let us take a moment to remember and honor those we have lost this year.

Firefighter/Paramedic John Ulmschneider.
John as well as another firefighter were both shot upon arrival at a home in Maryland on a welfare check called in. Unfortunately Johns injuries were too severe and he passed away.
Last, we turn to a story that has captured national coverage because its a mystery as to what happened. The search for missing Fairfax county firefighter came to a tragic end this evening as state troopers and park authority found her body in Shenandoah park, an apparent suicide. Thoughts and prayers are sent out to the family and all of Fairfax County Fire Department especially Station 32, Nicole’s station.
To the men and women that put their life on the line for us every day, all your hard work doesn’t go unnoticed or unappreciated!
THANK YOU for your service.
