Chief Rick Lasky of the Lewisville, Texas Fire Department is well known across the nation as a motivational speaker with his "Pride and Ownership" series. He officially retired at the end of August and will be missed by his Firefighting family. From what I understand, he will continue with his Pride and Ownership series with Chief John Salka of FDNY.

is a wonderful Tribute to his work and the person that he is.
