Honor Firefighters With Special E-Cards

August 18, 2011 – Collin College challenges everyone to make a statement to those that keep our communities safe as the country commemorates the 10th anniversary of 9/11.

The college and the Texas Campus Compact have joined together to promote a statewide initiative: “Live. Learn. Serve. Remember.”

Collin College encourages everyone to fill out a Firefighter Appreciation E-Card. Once submitted, the cards will be distributed to area fire chiefs.

Each e-card is a vote of appreciation to our local firefighters, letting them know what they mean to the community as we all remember the events of Sept. 11, 2001.

Also, the e-card includes a pledge to commit to fire safety and education in the home and the community.

Send an e-card now by going to through Oct. 15.

Contact Fire Science Director Pat McAuliff at or 972.548.6836, or the Center for Scholarly and Civic Engagement at or 972.881.5927 for more information.
