The Adventures of Paulo and Sven in studdsville: Special Episode.
A special episode of our boys.
About this creation
Today, the firefighters of Studdsville, remembered their fallen brothers.

2 SVFD firefighters died, not in the line of duty, but due to accidents and illnesses.
2 Firefighters who never will be coming home again.

The 3 were:

Chief J.J. Meijdam

Batt. Chief A. Meijdam



So in their memory and for the dedication of Truck 14 a firefighter memorial park was made and unveiled today.



The day started off with Engine 13 and Ladder 14 parading over main street, while all SVFD crews and rigs, and participating rigs and crews from all over the LFC were parked alongside the route.




The rigs were escorted by the Royal Studdsville Bagpipers.




Engine 13 was escorted by a honorguard, made out of MM, Paulo, Sven, Bruce and FF Mariya Brickova.




Ladder 14 was escorted by a honorguard made out of its crew.




The parade drew lots of spectators.




The 2 rigs arrived at the Studdsville memorial park where the Firefighter memorial is placed.




A moment of silence was held.




Squad 15 was parked at the memrial because it was Engine 13 from 1986 till 2009.




Ladder 31 was Ladder 13 at the same time so the rig was also present at the memorial.





Ladder 15 and Quint 1 have crossed ladders because all 2 members were active SVFD Firefighters when they died.




The silence was broken when the Bagpipers started to play Amazing Grace
(For the full expierence, play this Youtube link in the background:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OO5y2O_hv3I )




Then MM stepped forward and placed his grandfathers helmet at the foot of the memorial.




And he placed his fathers helmet next to it.




MM salutes the memorial and walks to the honorguard, when the engine backed up.



Ladder 14 drove forward, and Sven picked up a white helmet, in memory of his close friend Oliver, who died recently after battling a terrible decease.







Bruce placed a helmet for his aunts, who passed away after batteling cancer.





Paulo placed a helmet for his cousin, who is currently batteling cancer, but has been declared terminally ill.





Chief Brown placed a helmet, to remember every person, who passed away from decease.






Chief Brown then held a short speech: "We are here today, to remember our own 2 fallen brothers, and anyone close to us, who was fallen victim to illness.
As we mourn their passing, we also celibrate their lives, for all of these people meant something to someone, they were fathers, mothers sons,daughters uncles, aunts, cousins, or friends, these people fought a brave battle, but lost.
We remember them, so that tomorrow, we can cure all these horrible deceases.
Let us remember in silence."

(after a few minutes, a song came out of the PA system: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9zlkNvEeUok )



Then Chief Brown continued: "In memory of all those batteling and fallen to decease, Ladder 14 will carry the slogan Stairway to Heaven."

Then all present firefighters and other people applauded, and all rigs returned to their stations.



Here our the boys posing with Ladder 14.



The memorial, it represents a fallen firefighter being helped up by 2 of his brothers, while his spirit is watching over them.

The centre slope has the firefighters prayer on it, and a golden FDNY 343 9/11/2001

The left slope holds the nemens of the 2 passed SVFD Chiefs, and if a firefighter from SVFD passes away, his or her name will be added.

The right slope has "In memory of all fallen firefighers anywhere in the world" on it.



So ends this very special episode of my comics.
I made this to make the LFC aware that a lot of people are sick and dying from all sorts of deceases,I myself lost my father and my grandfather to cancer, so if you are able, please make a donation to research, because with your gift, we can hopefully cure these deceases, so that no one else has to loose a loved one.

So special thanks to Bruce, Sven and Paulo.

And a very Special thanks to all departments and companies who wanted to participate.

Thank you so much MM, this creation really touched me, sorry I was not here for when you originally posted it, but I can't tell you what It means to be helped like this, and all those days you put up with me hearing my many compliments about my difficult days, always counted on you bud! :)

Quoting D H Very well done Martijn! Very creative and meticulously detailed. *As a side note, Oakwood FD doesn't exist anymore, so neither does the snorkel ;)
Thanks DH, should I switch the snorkel with one of your active rigs? LOL

Quoting Sven Jagdmann Martijn my friend,I have to say thank you deep from my heart, because you did a fantastic job with this episode. I had goosebumps while reading and watching. This is such a great, heart touching and lovely made tribute to remember all of our deceased family members, friends and firemen all over the world. I'm deeply moved and I think they'll never be forgotten. Thank you again for doing this my friend...
Thanks Sven, your comment means a lot to me. Stay safe.

Quoting Bob K This "comic" is a very nice tribute to those who have gone before us, whether firefighter or civilian. Terminal illness is always rough news to hear for the victim and families, as well as friends. I second the motion to contribute to the research to fight diseases, such as for cancer research, Muscular Dystrophy, AIDS research, etc. In addition, anything you can do to help minimize your risk of contracting diseases is always a good thing. While some disease may be passed on from generation to generation, you can also take steps to prevent being stricken with a disease (i.e. don't smoke...it can help prevent lung cancer. Avoid dirty needles...you don't know if the last user of the needle has a bloodborne illness, such as HIV). That said, bretheren firefighters, mask up at every fire. You don't know what is burning in the dumpster. During overhaul, the air quality remains poor. Why risk your lungs? Mask up at car fires. That stuff is nasty to breathe in. Always err on the side of caution, otherwise you can be the next person memorialized here. Stay safe.
Thanks Bob, I'm glad you support this cause. And your tips for the people who read it are much appreciated. Stay safe also.

Quoting Lego Fire Museum Inc. I lost my Father and Grandmother to cancer. I understand your pain. I admire your tribute to your family members. It is very nicely done. It has a lot more detail than my simple tribute to my Father from 2011. (http://www.mocpages.com/moc.php/279075) Cancer affects so many people and you illustrated this point well with the captions for your photos. I avoided the personal aspects of losing a loved one. You dealt with it head one. Your Father and Grandfather would be proud of you for this. I recently made a donation to Alex's Lemonade Stand Foundation (www.alexslemonade.org/) which combats childhood cancer. It felt good to contribute. I admire your call for action. Hopefully, others will follow your urging and make a contribution to the fight against cancer.
I'm very sorry for the loss of your father and Grandmother. Your tribute to your father sparked the idea for my tribute, then I heard about Bruce loosing 2 aunts and Sven losing a dear friend then Paulo told me about his cousin, and I was moved by these tragedies, so I planned it as a tribute to everyone who is sick or has lost someone they cared about. But I personally think the tribute to your dad is still one of the best non emergency MOC's on here. And I deeply respect you for donating to that cause. That is a story witch started Ladder 14's dedication. I wanted a Tiller, and had a contest on EB, winner would get a money prize, and Paulo made the current Tiller, and I was sold by it. And lack of entries shut the contest down, so I donated the prize money to KIKA (Dutch Children Cancer fund) and ordered the Tiller, and part of the final cost for the rig Paulo donated to cancer research also. So it has done a lot of good things so far. So thanks for your comment, it really moved me.

Quoting Jon D Very nice and touching post MM! Makes me think of the city I live by, their department has a memorial for all their fallen firefighters. No matter how they died, if they were with the department they are honored and their name is added to the memorial.
Thanks, and cool that the city you live by honors firefighters like that.

Quoting Spencer A cool but if its about 9/11 why didnt you send it to mp this early
*sigh* Reading is such a underused skill these days. But to make it easy, the comic is not about 9/11, its about people batteling bad deceases. And my dad would have been 61 on september 2nd, but cancer cut that short 6 weeks after his 55th birtday, so in memory of him, and all that have passed away from illness I made this comic. The Studdsville Firefighter memorial has a plaque dedicated to 9/11 that was also revealed today, that is all.

Quoting dcatch 1 Excellent. The bagpipes really make a difference, and it is an astonishing tribute to the dead. I'm guessing you chose now to upload it because we're near 9/11?
Thanks, and yeah, this week is the perfect moment to upload this, september 2nd was my dads birthday, and september 11th is right around the corner.
