U.S. Air Force Chief Master Sgt. William Taylor, center, 100th Civil Engineer Squadron Fire Department installation fire chief, poses for a photo with some of his firefighter family Sept. 26, 2017, on RAF Mildenhall, England. Taylor was trapped, alone and almost lost his life in a fire during a training session when he was a new Airman in July 1997, aged just 20. Afterwards, he vowed to become a fire chief and that safety, training and family oriented culture would be his main focal points to ensure his team’s success.

This burnt-out personal alert safety system was the only piece of gear, belonging to then-Airman 1st Class William Taylor, which survived when he was trapped and alone in a training fire in July 1997 near Maxwell Air Force Base, Ala. Now-Chief Master Sgt. Taylor said the damaged PASS is sentimental and serves as a reminder of how dangerous a firefighter’s job is, and that they have the potential to be called upon to make the ultimate sacrifice in service of fellow patriots.
