Assistant Fire Chief Higgins and Patrick Hourihan.  Patrick Hourihan was one of the principal members of The Centennial Committee.  The committee was led by Assistant Chief Jim Higgins and made up of 20 sworn and non-sworn Glendale Fire Personnel.  The committee's task was to organize the 100th year celebration and commemorate the event by making lasting symbols for the next 100 years. 

Patrick designed and made the artwork.  There are two much larger pieces.  One of the larger works is hanging in the Glendale Fire Department's Administration building.  One of the smaller badges will hang in each of the Glendale Fire stations.  The artwork was well received.  Patrick Hourihan said, "every firefighter wanted one."

Firefighters Joe Hester, Randy Rodriquez and Jeremy Krossman spoke about the thousands of hours Glendale Firefighters, as volunteers, give back to the community in their numerous charity works.  One particular effort is the firefighters help to "end the hurt of hunger", Randy Rodriquez said was starting a food bank.  This food bank gave out three tons of food in nine days.  One in four children, nationally, suffers from food insufficiency.
