International Association of Firefighters president honors Lt. Ed Walsh

Posted: Updated:
WATERTOWN, Mass. (WHDH) - Harold Schaitberger, President of the International Association of Firefighters, recognized Lt. Ed Walsh's duty and service as a firefighter.

"By all accounts, like so many in this line of work, he accepted his position on the Boston Fire department because it wasn't just a job. It was his calling," Schaitberger said.

Schaitberger presented the IAFF Medal of Honor for Walsh and noted the fallen firefighter's command in last week's fire in Back Bay.

"Working fires, tough decisions where you make life or death decisions, medical emergencies when seconds count, that's why Eddie was put here on this earth," he said.
