On 9/11, We Honor 16 Years of Service and Sacrifice

September 08, 2017

Sixteen years.

It’s incredible to think that so many years have passed since September 11, 2001. It was a day that revealed to us the worst of humanity — and the very best that our nation has to offer.

When we reflect on 9/11, we remember the lives that were lost. We also remember the courage, selflessness and service that were on full display that day and on so many others that followed.

The crew at Fire Department Coffee is made up of both firefighters and military veterans. It’s given us the opportunity to meet and get to know some of the finest men and women ever to wear a uniform.

Some of them answered the call on September 11, 2001. Many more joined the fire service or the military in the months and years that followed.

Today, we honor them all. Today, we raise our mugs to true heroes.

We work long hours. As firefighters, that’s just how it is. The firehouse has to be manned 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, all year long. No matter when that call comes in, we have to be ready, energized and ready for whatever challenge lies ahead. But we know we’re not alone. We meet people all the time who work just as hard, just as long. Blue collar, white collar. Hard work doesn’t discriminate. We all put in the time because that’s what the job calls for. One thing most us seem to have in...

The Heroes Behind the Heroes: Fire Dept. Coffee Takes Over Pierce Manufacturing

It was 3:30 a.m., and they were smiling. Really smiling. That’s when the workday begins for the first shift of men and women filing into the factory at Pierce Manufacturing. These are hardworking folks who love their job. They loved it just a little bit more on that day last week because we were there to greet each one of them with a fresh cup of Fire Dept. Coffee.
