Billy Self Memorial Golf Tourney

7th Annual Billy Self Memorial Golf Tournament
Sponsored by Birmingham Firefighters Association
Local 117

The 7th Annual Billy Self Memorial Golf Tournament to benefit Camp Smile-A-Mile was held Wednesday at Highland Park Golf Course. The Tournament, to benefit kids with cancer, was sponsored by the Birmingham Firefighters Association, Local 117.

There was a huge turn out and everyone seemed to really enjoy themselves. There were so many people playing that the course used all their golf carts. Most importantly, the Firefighters were able to make a large donation to help kids in need.

I want to say a special thank you to everyone at Local 117 for inviting me to attend. I also want to thank William for driving me all over the course. We didn't hit a single tree.

Northside Structure Fire

Birmingham Fire & Rescue

Monday, I happened to be at Station 1 when the station tones started sounding. As dispatch starts to call out the list of companies, I heard a voice over the station PA system, "Everybody". Everybody! That meant Engine 1, Truck 1, Rescue 1 and Battalion 2, who happened to be there.

The call was for a reported structure fire near Carraway.

I left out the back and stopped in the alley. Here they came. A line of apparatus heading up 19th Street.

Engine 9 jumped on the fire quickly and, with Engine 13, handled the fire.

Great work!

Companies on the scene included:
  • Engine 9
  • Engine 13
  • Engine 1
  • Truck 1
  • Rescue 1
  • Battalion 2
  • BPD 123
