At approximately 8:00 a.m. Monday, April 2, 2018, CEI (Certified Express, Inc.) unveiled their latest show truck at Fire Station #1 in Neosho.  This truck is a tribute to fallen firefighters and includes the names of three local firefighters who lost their life in the line of duty.  These three firefighters represent Neosho, Carthage and Seneca fire departments.  Their names are displayed on the back of the sleeper cab beneath a banner reading “We’ll Take It From Here”.  The firefighters representing each department are Timothy Hardy, NFD, Neosho, MO, Tyler H. Casey, SAFPD, Seneca, MO and Steve Fierro, CFD, Carthage, MO.  This is certainly a great tribute to men who were willing to risk and then give all for others.
Each department was represented this morning at the time of the reveal.
The accompanying photos will say more than we can ever put into words regarding this tribute.  While not complete at this time, the respective departments will be assembled once more when the remainder of the graphics and plans are installed.  As stated, not verbatim but in essence, by a representative of CEI, “This has become a work in progress and as one part has reached completion, the vision has expanded”.
Please join us in extending a “Thank You” to CEI and their employees for providing this tribute to these local heroes.
