🔥 Honoring Our Heroes: Ukrainian Firefighters @roman.kachanov.ua @chernomor.a.a @nachkar393 Work Together with the Chicago Fire Academy and the FD Marine Station 🔥
When our brave Ukrainian firefighters visited the famed Chicago Fire Academy and the awe-inspiring Chicago FD Marine Station, it was an incredible experience!
These brave men and women, who have experienced the challenges of working in war zones, joined forces with Chicago’s outstanding firefighters to exchange knowledge, share experiences, and build the connection of worldwide unity.
The hands-on training sessions allowed our heroes to gain knowledge and skills from the Chicago Fire Academy’s recognized professionals.
Our Ukrainian firefighters had the great opportunity to see the incredible world of firefighting on the water at the Chicago FD Marine Station. They were astounded by modern technology and impressed by the bravery and ability of the maritime firefighters who protect the city’s coastline.
Curtis Hudson, Assistant Director of training at Chicago Fire department, even cut off his chevron from his uniform to give it to Ukrainian firefighters! Such a moment of unity will be remembered for a lifetime! They also took part in a heartfelt ceremony when they signed both Ukrainian and American flags, signifying the strong tie between our two countries and their firefighting brotherhood 🇺🇦🤝🇺🇸
