Without Representative Elkin's help, the fire stations would still be shells; little more than big storage sheds for the emergency vehicles. What we have now is the foundation for this fire department to carry it into the coming decades. The high level of emergency response is directly proportional to Jim's willingness to help. I want to thank Representative Johansen for his tribute to Jim in the State Legislature.
Jim was and is an honorary
member of the North Tongass Volunteer Fire Department. We will
all miss his strength, wit, wisdom and humor. Being around him
made us all excited about what we were doing. Now we are on our
own. Thanks Jim, we ll take it from here.
