Ginger Bryant does a wonderful job outlining the history of the great organization known as the Orlando Fire Department. The tradition and heritage of this Central Florida boomtown has grown over the years, but the love for the job is still as evident as the members of today as it was for the members of yesteryear. This is a great read, followed by great pictures of the OFD. Great job Ginger!
