Master Firefighter Branzell Signs Off

Master Firefighter John Branzell is retiring after 27 years with MCFRS. His current and last assignment was with the Emergency Communications Center (ECC) on B Shift. 

ECC is the primary link between a resident, who reports an emergency via 9-1-1, and the fire and rescue personnel and equipment, who respond to an incident scene. The ECC's mission is to obtain the necessary information to dispatch the proper response quickly, provide appropriate pre-arrival instructions, ensure fire and rescue response personnel have adequate situational awareness of the dispatched event, and to manage all response communications and technologies. Master Firefighter Branzell was considered one of the best in this business.

Master Firefighter Branzell, known to all as JB, provided one last transmission to all MCFRS personnel just prior to leaving (below).

JB will be missed and everyone in MCFRS wishes him a happy and healthy retirement.
