We are pleased to announce our 15th Anniversary of spreading GotBigWater "knowledge". Little did we know in the Spring of 2003 that what was born in the basement corner office of an old rancher would one day become a leader in the fire protection water supply field. We could not have done it alone...many have helped us along the way and to them we say "Thank You." First and foremost, the most credit goes to Larry Davis for his wisdom, passion, and inspiration...we strive to carry forth that inspiration every day. Many, many thanks to Greg Dods who really got our dry fire hydrant work started. Greg's creativity and craftsmanship produced the forerunner to what we install today - his work was awesome. Kenny at Bob's Welding took that to the next level...R.I.P. Kenny, we enjoyed our many design sessions with you at the "old" welding table.

Of course, you would not be reading any of this on a website if it were not for Chuck Adams, Charles Bailey, and Sid Rubin. Those folks got us out of woods and into mainstream media. Huge thanks to Charles Bailey for the logo design work; his novel creativity and artistic ability produced artwork that far exceeded our expectations. Thanks go out to Darcey Bowen who took the logo and produced our t-shirt and marketing items' designs.

Our instructors have been top notch...each one was hand picked to deliver the GotBIgWater message...and every one of them has done just that with passion, knowledge, and patience. To Alan Butsch, Tom Coe, Shane Darwick, Greg Dods, Andy Gettig, Sam Henry, Tim Legore, Paul Quigley, Chris Riley, and Bryan Rojtas - thank you for all of your hard work and travels. Every program you ever did came back with high marks from students and sponsors. Your work has made a difference to 5, 318 persons in many places throughout the United States and Canada.

Today, our friends at ETT, Witte's Truck and Tractor, and Ultimate Powder Coatings all make our products better in quality and dependability - thank you. The folks at Firehouse Solutions provide us with a website that is professional and easy to use. We soon will hit one million site visits!

In closing, the past 15 years have been great...we look forward to the next 15..
