Rich Collins

Immediately after 9/11 we had powerful symbols to emulate, especially the firefighters of New York City. Their courage and sacrifice lived not just in them as individuals, but collectively in them as family -- the kind of family we wanted to be. Rich Collins is a fire captain in the North Bay, and to him family is what defines firefighters -- not only on iconic days like 9/11, but every single day.
