Sheree and I, along with the employees of FEMA, were saddened to hear about the passing of Hal Bruno. Hal was a national icon serving for more than 60 years as an active member of the fire service community, as well as a dedicated national journalist for ABC News and Newsweek. As an active member of the fire service community, Hal served as a dedicated volunteer firefighter, advocate, commentator and leader and was selflessly committed to fire safety initiatives. As the Chairman of the National Fallen Firefighters Foundation, he displayed a commitment to expanding services and resources for the survivors of fallen firefighters. Our sincere condolences go out to Hal’s family, friends, and colleagues in the fire service and in journalism. He will be greatly missed. And please share this tribute page and video of Hal.
