BROTHERHOOD ABOVE ALL ELSE
Updated On: Apr 17, 2012

As members of the International Association of Fire Fighters we take an oath to serve and protect one another as well as the public. Brothers Jed Hyland, Steve Keffer, Paul McClure, Clinton Anderson and Si Do are leading by example and reminding us all that loyalty among Firefighters is paramount. The selfless act of giving their lottery winnings to the Firefighter Survivors Fund to benefit Vincent Cordova will endow this union with inspiration for years to come. Captain Jed Hyland submitted this letter to the membership:

Dear IAFF Members,

IAFF local 244 members at AFD station 8 won a sliver of the widely publicized "Mega Millions" lottery on Friday. We hit five out of six numbers and are to be awarded a cash prize. In an effort to continue in the charitable work begun by our generous and selfless brothers and sisters, the prize winning crew have pledged an equal share of their winnings to the IAFF Local 244 Firefighter Survivor's Fund. Our contribution was inspired by the bold advocacy and selfless generosity exhibited by so many in our membership, and by our sincere desire to help our Brother Vince Cordova and his family, OUR family, in this time of crisis.

 

Respectfully and Fraternally, 

 

Jed Hyland, Captain

Albuquerque Fire Department

AFD Fire Station 8
