This is a moment that just had to be shared. Captain Colson responded to a call down the street from his home. Once the emergency was mitigated his wife let their eager daughter say hello to her Daddy. She quickly snapped this photo of them just before he swept her into his arms for a hug. I hate to compare but I just have to say it, our Fire family is the best! Thank you Mrs. Colson for sharing this moment with us. Stay safe.

The inception of the PFFA came about as a successor to the Arizona State Firemen’s Association, which was founded in 1924. During that time, Tucson Chief Joseph Roberts was the head of the Firemen’s Association. Interestingly enough, activists in that original organization were mostly chiefs and the organization was open to all firefighters, professional and volunteer. One key activist in the AFSA was Phoenix Deputy Chief, Jake Siken.
