Its Offical

Postby Jeff Silvey » Wed Mar 07, 2012 7:23 am

As you all know Steve Butram took the job of Deputy Chief of the Lafayette FD. Steve had told me when the swearing in was going to be I thought I'm going to support him as a friend & brother FF. It was a very nice ceremony with the council chambers full with family members, freinds, & on duty firefighters. I did have several people ask who I knew I said Steve then they said how you know Steve I said tractors they said you mean those cubs I said yes then they would smile. Present as well were Steve's parents, & his in laws. Congrats Steve you will do a Great job.



Lady pinning Steve's Badge is the lady that got Steve involed in the fire service where he lives. Along with his family.


Yes I had my uniform on as well.

Jeff, You must have looked suspicious to the others if they were so questionable. :lol:

Congrats Steve!

It is common sense to take a method and try it. If it fails, admit it frankly and try another. But above all, try something.
