Greetings from the UK. I'm a Fire Fighter in the UK, Avon Fire and Rescue Service. Congratulations on a great web site guys, really good. Would be interested in contacting other Southard Firefighters and knowing the origin of your Fire Departments name. Love never a dull moment. Have been a firefighter for 27 years my father before me who clocked up 32 years service and my Brother also long service. Keep up the good work guys.
I grew up in Howell and spent much of my young life at the Southard FH with my dad, Pete Zari, Ex-Chief and Lifetime member. Many, many great memories. I truly respected those fire fighters. My respect for them has had a long lasting effect on my life where I have tried to live up to their standards. Even though I only served as a Southard probie for a short time, I am truly proud that my grandson became a brave and dedicated FF to follow in my Dad's footsteps. He wore my father's Chief's cap at his academy graduation and I could not have been more proud. Thank You boys!!
Its been a long time from the area of howell was on both the Fire dept and first aid sq in the mid 80's Southard has come a long way . Keep up the great job . To the paid guys keep the spirit of the Dept alive .
