Having worked extensively with Chief Curia regarding FD Communications over the last few months I can say he is the right person for the job. He cares about his firefighters and FD and will continue to do a good job leading the city. Congrats Chief!

Does Durham Fire allow members who are veterans to wear their ribbons or do they use US military ribbons to reflect departmental awards?
