Great job IAFF and all involved.
As always, you took your stand, got together, fought using the facts of the case, and prevailed.
It's been working like this for years.
It only took 100’s of lives to persuade them. John Steward made it his final mission. Unfortunately, Mitch McConnell will shoot it down. Great job folks “United we Stand, Divided we Fall”. 👍
Thanks to Ray, Lou and all who made the trek to Washington to see this to fruition.
Thank you John
Thanks to John Steward!!!
Thank you to all First Responders September 11,2001...
Good job. But Congress should’ve done it YEARS ago...
First responders deserve everything along with all veterans no illegals at all
Is she the best speaker they could find to read this she hasn’t a clue what she’s doing there
Too bad the Congress had to be shamed for this to happen .
Glad this has passed, Ridicules that there had to be a fight for this.
Union strong nice job all of the fire, police and trades
The pile should have been bioremediated using Compressed Air Foam to render the Hazardous Materials safe. I don’t hear anyone saying that we can prevent the type of cancers that Zadroga and Phifer contracted by using advanced firefighting technology! Stop using
Long live Jimmy Max, And Ray
Quit fidgeting and lording over the speaker Chuck Schumer! Who are you to interrupt her. Did she forget to say your name you media hog.
Still not Voting for Democrats again
It’s about time.
Hard fought and well deserved congrats brothers

In Tampa, as with other major American cities, the evolution from all volunteer to career fire companies occurred due to the arrival of steam technology. Tampa’s first organized volunteer fire department was founded in1884. Seven “bucket brigades” were organized to serve the city. On May 10, 1895, the city council passed ordinance #307 authorizing Tampa’s first professional, paid fire department. A. J. Harris was named chief to preside over 22 fire fighters in five stations at an annual budget of $18,000. The paid firefighters worked in the stations for ten to twelve days at a time. Most of the firefighters lived near their duty stations and were permitted to go home for meals, provided they could return within one hour. Their salary was equivalent to that of police patrol officers, about $600 a year. From May 10, 1895, forward the fire department began to evolve. First the “bucket brigades” were slowly replaced by hand operated pumpers pulled to the scene by the firefighters. Fire hydrants and steam engines were introduced to do the work of pumping water to firefighter’s hoses. With the introduction of steam engines came the requirement of horses to pull the extremely heavy apparatus. read more
