IAFF Local 4416 President Tony Murray accepted the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge from members at Zionsville 91A. Members at Noblesville 73A helped to ensure Murray got the full force of ice and water all to raise awareness and kick off this year's fundraising efforts for this important cause. Fire Fighters and Local 4416 have a long history of members taking to the streets to raise donations for MDA each year around Labor Day. This year is no different as Fire Fighters will hit the streets again in the coming weeks to Fill-the-Boot and raise money for treatment, research, and a cure for many neuromuscular diseases such as ALS and other forms of MD.

In 2008, the FDNY allowed an NFFF film crew unprecedented access to members of that legendary department. These brave men and women shared their commitment to safe practices and courageoulsy told the stories of how they escaped death but, in some cases, not severe injury. This film, the Courage to Be Safe®: FDNY, has been viewed by tens of thousands of firefghters in the interveneing years since its release. It has garnered awards both in and outside the fire service, including being honored at the New York International Independent Film and Video Festival.
In October, 2010, fire service film producer Rob Maloney took his crew to Chicago to begin a second film, Courage to Be Safe®: Chicago Fire Department. Chicago Fire Commissioner Robert Hoff, impressed with the FDNY piece, requested that the NFFF do a similar proejct for Chicago. While in the Windy City, Maloney's team filmed dozens of Chicago Fire Deartment staff--all of whom tell their stories in a straight-forth and compelling manner.
