The Brotherhood Ride is on their 4th day of cycling through the State of Florida in honor of fallen first responders. Along the way, they are stopping at different agencies, meeting with families of the fallen they are honoring, stopping at different memorials sites and monuments, etc.

This video is from day 2 sent in by our very own Firefighter Jonathan West who is on the ride. This is his 1st year. The 42 riders made up of fire, law enforcement & EMS personnel and a support team, stopped by a memorial in honor of Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office Sergeant Brian LaVigne to meet with his co-workers and pay their respects.

The team started cycling this past Saturday in Fort Myers and will be riding until this Saturday, ending in Jacksonville.

So proud of all who are riding.

The Heights Elementary Panthers rock!

Today, we had the opportunity to visit with the kindergarten students at Heights! They are learning about community helpers, so we took the time to discuss fire & life safety, present our Friendly Firefighter program, and learn about what they know about firefighters. They were a bright bunch!

Fire Chief Seth Comer made a special appearance and talked about what it’s like to be the Fire Chief and what a fire chief does!

As a thank you, they presented us with a wooden flag and a basket full of goodies to take back to the station.

At the end of our visit, the students lined the bus ramp and waved us off!

They’re off!

Firefighter Jonathan West is on day 1 of the Brotherhood Ride!

FF West will be riding in the Brotherhood Ride Jan. 21 – 28. This ride will be dedicated to 85 Florida First Responders who died in the line of duty in 2021, while protecting their communities.

The team will honor them by cycling through the State of Florida for eight days, covering over 600 miles, stopping at different first responder agencies along the way. The team, made up of first responders, consists of 42 riders and a support team. The Brotherhood Ride provides financial and emotional support to the families of the fallen.

This morning, a send-off ceremony was held at Lee County Sheriff's Office headquarters to see the team off and wish them a safe journey. Truck 74 joined South Trail Fire Protection & Rescue Service District Ladder 62 to display the American flag the riders rode under when they took off.

Our Community Relations Specialist Megan Contreras has been affiliated with the ride for several years, and every year starts off the ceremony by reading the names of the fallen first responders since the inception of the ride in 2009 to now. This year she read 224 names.

This is our fire district’s first year having a rider on the team.

Thank you all riding for vowing to never forget those who paid the ultimate sacrifice.
