How long have you been a member of HTFC-23 and why did you join?
I’ve been a member of HTFD-23 for about two years now. I joined after my older brother joined and told me about all the stuff he did, so when I turned 16 I went down to the station and joined.

The best part about being a member of HTFD-23 is giving back to your community and helping people in their time of need as well as being a part of a brotherhood with your fellow firefighters.
