Governor Charlie Crist made a stop in Oldsmar on June 25th to sign into law Florida Senate Bill 198, which formally adopted a state flag in honor of Florida’s fallen firefighters. “The Firefighter Memorial Flag honors those who made the ultimate sacrifice in the line of duty. Our hearts and eternal gratitude go out to these public servants and their loved ones,” said Gov. Crist during his address. “Florida’s firefighters are public servants of the highest caliber, risking their own safety every day to ensure their fellow Floridians are safe.”
