I did not have the opportunity to be at the Missouri State Fair Fire Department this year. My doctor did not want me to be at the fair due to the COVID-19 pandemic with my medical condition.

I appreciate Fire Marshal Tim Bean for being present many days and for having many of his staff there working and teaching fire prevention and using the training props for demonstrations.
