"Most of the time, if someone gets injured with fireworks, it's usually a burn, usually to the face, arms, hands, something like that, the fingers," said Jim Murua, Fire Marshal for the Fort Wayne Fire Department.

The chance of surviving a fire significantly increases when you have a working smoke alarm," Assistant Chief Jim Murua, Fire Marshal of the Fort Wayne Fire Department, said.
His grandchildren and our ..., 14 June 2011 [cached]
His grandchildren and our children were playing soccer together as we chatted and watched.

We learned about Jim and his family and a little bit about his background. My friend and I listened intently as he shared from his heart-searing past at the residential school. Without going into much detail, he shared about the hatred and anger he had felt about one priest in particular who had abused him as a child. Jim shared that he was scarred from that point on and had difficulty knowing how to love. To illustrate this sad reality, Jim also shared that he had been through four marriages. The eyes of my friend and mine filled with tears as Jim shared about what it meant to lose his dignity as an Indian man. We felt humbled that this man shared something so personal and hurtful with two people who probably sounded and looked like the people who ran that residential school.

Jim also told us that he’d like to show us the residential school’s marching band drum that he claimed before the building was demolished.

We were officially welcomed and thanked by several elders, our Penelakut missionary friend offered a prayer of thanksgiving to the Creator, and then Jim showed up with his drum.

Together with a small circle of his children and grandchildren, Jim sang and played on that old residential school drum. The symbolism of his beating the drum that reads “Kuper Island Residential School†left a profound image on our hearts. More than that, we were humbled and blessed by the gift of music shared with us, the music that is typically reserved for Penelakut celebrations.

Our team went to Penelakut Island to show the real love of God to a people whose history is literally marked by one cursor: life before Christianity was forced into their culture and life after, a time of struggle to reclaim their heritage. But we left the island overwhelmed by the love of God for us demonstrated through the Penelakut people. We learned that children are “the universal language,†and our love for them can bring any two cultures together, especially through a game of soccer!Â

So now our team members live with parts of our hearts remaining on Penelakut Island and with Jim, Sebastian, Della, Amanda, Ida, Denean, Riley, Robin, Dalton, Justine, and so many others.

There was Russ, Bob, Jim and Aaron and more. For one reason or another God has moved them on to other places in life.
Three parts are evident: (1)“entry†questions asked immediately on contact with the caller, (2) the questions relevant to the specific emergency and (3) the “disconnect “ comments based on the status of the arrival of emergency help and/or dispatcher work load.Â

My next visit was to Jim Murua, Assistant Chief Fire Marshall, who ranked the most frequent calls received involving the Fire Department, allowing me to create/organize a series of scenarios to share with students. I’ve recently requested the Police Department to do the same for me.Â

Based on the input from Dawn and Jim, I’ve created a PowerPoint presentation that they both have reviewed and approved for use.
