This page and web site is dedicated to the “OFF THE LINE” Newsletters and BOB Sampson. Bob started this Newsletter in 1994 – 2014, with information relevant to members of HFD retired Firefighters and their Families. I hope by presenting these newsletters, to give our membership and new members a look at our past and history to show what we can do after retirement. I hope to make this page an Archive for all the newsletters for the enjoyment of our membership.

When I am called to duty. God, wherever flames may rage, give me strength to save a life, whatever be it’s age. Help me embrace a little child before it is too late, or save an older person from the horror of that fate. Enable me to be alert, and hear the weakest shout, quickly and efficiently to put the flre out. I want to fill my calling, to give the best in me, to guard my friend and neighbor, and protect his property. And if according to your will I must answer death’s call, bless with your protecting hand, my family one and all.
