Photos from 2013: A tribute to the firefighters who serve Genesee County
Submitted by Howard Owens on December 24, 2013 - 9:37am
A year ago today, two volunteer firefighters responding to a fire in Webster were ambushed, shot and killed. It was an unspeakable tragedy that resonated throughout the communities of Western New York.
Our firefighters face enough risks and challenges without being senselessly targeted.
Last year, we published a slideshow of the year's worth of photos of Genesee County's heroes, and to keep the tradition going, here are some of the photos from 2013 of both career and volunteer firefighters working, training and serving our community.
