Breck And LAST

Ahna, Ezra, and I went up to Breckenridge over the weekend to spend some time up in the mountains…the excuse was that I had a meeting up there (more on that later). My folks and Rena were already up there for a conference that my Dad was speaking/attending at, so we met up with them for breakfast on Saturday and enjoyed a nice walk around downtown Breckenridge afterwards. It was cold up there: like 0-5 degrees with lots of snow, so Ezra packed into his snowsuit that Grandparents Bersagel got for him.

The meeting that I attended was my first with a new team that I am on called the Colorado L.A.S.T. (Local Assistance State Team), which is a state-level resource for the National Fallen Firefighters Foundation. We will respond to any and all Line Of Duty Deaths of firefighters within the entire state of Colorado. The team is comprised of about 10 people, and took an application and interview process tojoin. It’s something that is extremely important to me, and I am honored to be selected to be on the team. My specialty will be Logistics: helping the family and local jurisdictions in coordinating the services, and everything that goes into those services (bagpipes, honor guard, etc). I pray that my service to this team never goes beyond simply attending the meetings, but if I am ever called out, I will do it with the greatest sense of pride.
