We have produced a compelling new video that illustrates the barrage of negative media that fire fighters are facing.

General President Schaitberger premiered the video this morning during the general session of the 50th IAFF Convention in San Diego.

The video is brief, but it accurately represents the prevailing tone of the talking heads who find it easy to blame fire fighters [and all public employees, for that matter] for the economic problems that towns and cities across North America have experienced since the recession began to skewer public budgets.

The video has been posted on the website here.
