PHOTOS: Former Phoenix Fire Chief Alan Brunacini has influenced tens of thousands of firefighters around the world.
A mural painted on the side of a building in downtown Phoenix on Osborn Road just before 7th Street will honor the life and legacy of Brunacini, who served as the city’s fire chief from 1978 to 2006.
The mural features a firefighter wearing bright yellow turnouts working on a fire hydrant with hundreds of feet of yellow fire hose painted along the base of the building. The hose leads to the “Charlie” side of the building, which is fire lingo for the back of the structure.
That’s where you get a full visual of the legacy and personality of the man who was known for firefighter safety and being nice.
