  Mrs. BACHMANN. Mr. Speaker, I rise today to congratulate the Cold 
Spring Fire Department on their 100th anniversary this year. It is my 
honor to join with the Cold Spring community in celebrating this 
milestone marking a century of service.
  Since ancient Rome, communities have depended on fire departments to 
control and prevent fires to homes, businesses and public buildings. 
Today's community fire department continues the work of fire management 
and prevention, but has added the responsibility of first responders 
for medical and other rescue situations as well. When so much is 
depending on individuals to volunteer for this dangerous work, we owe 
them our deepest gratitude. As the city of Cold Spring gathers to show 
their thanks to the firefighters who have trained, worked and lived in 
their community, let me add my gratefulness for the support they have 
shown these everyday heroes this last century.
  October is also National Fire Prevention Month, so I also thank the 
Cold Spring Fire Department for their efforts to educate and train the 
public in fire prevention at home and in the outdoors. Mister Speaker, 
please join with me in thanking all of America's firefighters for their 
prevention efforts and then in congratulating the Cold Spring Fire 
Department on their 100th Anniversary.
