Photographer Gregory Bielefeldt captured Lt. Todd Krodle explaining fire gear to the children at Peabody Elementary in 2010. This heartwarming photograph illustrates what a vital role our non-emergency work plays in our community. It is a bittersweet memory for the Dallas Fire Dept family however as Lt. Krodle would fight his last fire in 2011 when a roof collapse took his life.
