Fiala Dedication 02

On November 17th, ladder truck 529 was dedicated to the memory of Firefighter Peter Fiala.  Peter R. Fiala’s life was about sacrifice — first for his country, then for his community, and later, during his final nine years, for fellow and future brain cancer patients.  A nine-year Army veteran who served during the 1980s, the La Grange native joined the Tri-State Fire Protection District in Darien in 1990 within a year of returning to civilian life.
