“Phoenix of the Detroit Fire Department makes Black History every day, and I’m proud to thank them for their service,” said Chef Max of Detroit COOP and Detroit JEDs. “Their team is here for our community when we need them most. They are our superheroes. Providing nutritious food is my superpower, and I thank you for supporting us all and keeping our neighborhoods safe. I have to pay tribute. “
Phoenix members also plan to unveil a special memorial in memory of their two deceased brothers. At this private event, Phoenix members will arrive Saturday at the historic Engine 11, located at 2733 Gratiot Ave. Detroit, MI 48207 at noon.
“The Phoenix Fire Department of Detroit was founded in 1967 to support minority communities after the riots. Their story is a black story and the story of Detroit. We are happy to live in the city with first aid services that directly provide assistance to minorities. I am happy that we can raise them this memorable month and in the future, ”Hon said. Gray Gay-Dagny, MSc.
