1/30/07 Line of Duty Death - Cordesville, SC

Line of Duty Death      Our condolences to the Fahey family and the United States Forest Service of Cordesville, South Carolina. FireFighter Kenneth Fahey, 35, a 6 year veteran of the Forest Service, died Thursday January 25, 2007. Kenneth was returning from a controlled burn when his 3/4-ton forest service truck crossed over into oncoming traffic and collided head-on with a tractor-trailer driven by Lonnie Nettles, 43. Both vehicles caught fire after the impact and both drivers were pinned in their vehicles and died at the scene.

     For more news, information, and photos, please visit the Kenneth Fahey Memorial in the Fallen Brothers Section.


1/29/07 Armpatch Gallery Update

     Today I updated the Armpatch Gallery with 24 new armpatches, including these two submissions from the Goshen Fire Company of Chester County, Pennsylvania and the Lake Ozark Fire Protection District of Lake Ozark, Missouri. I have also featured the Dunn's Corner Fire Department of Westerly and Charlestown, Rhode Island.

     These new armpatches can be found on pages Armpatch 178 and Armpatch 179. There are now 2,148 armpatches in the gallery.


1/26/07 Line of Duty Death - Harrison, TN

Line of Duty Death      Our condolences to the Daugehtee family and the Highway 58 Volunteer Fire Department of Harrison, Tennessee. FireFighter Shane Daughetee, 24, a 7 year veteran of the Highway 58 Volunteer Fire Department, died Friday January 26, 2007. Shane had responded to a fully involved structure fire at a 5,000 square foot home. During search and rescue operations, he fell though the floor and into the basement. A rescue attempt was initiated, but a further collapse of the structure prevented his rescue and he perished. Four other firefighters received minor burns and were treated at the scene.

     For more news, information, and photos, please visit the Shane Daughetee Memorial in the Fallen Brothers Section.

1/16/07 New Website Feature: Featured Department

     On a daily basis I receive 1 or 2 requests to have a fire department website added to my directory. For the most part they go unnoticed unless you are browsing that departments' state in the directory. I have decided to 'Feature' fire departments as they are added to the directory.

     At the top right of the Current News page will be an area showcasing this 'Featured Department' with their armpatch, name, and location, providing a link to their website. Clicking on this link will open their fire department website in a new window.


1/14/07 Attention WFD Members

     I have received word that Waterbury FireFighter Brian Barnosky, who was severely injured in an off-duty one car mva, is healing well and should not require any surgery. He is receiving physical therapy at home and should have a larger amount of healing over the next 2 to 3 weeks.

     There will be a general meeting of WFD Local 1339 on Thursday January 25, 2007 7PM at the Waterville Fire Station.


1/11/07 Armpatch Gallery Update

     Today I updated the Armpatch Gallery with 24 new armpatches, including these two submissions from the Gumtree Fire and Rescue Department of Gumtree, North Carolina and the World Trade Center Task Force ATV Unit from the FDNY, New York City.

     These new armpatches can be found on pages Armpatch 176 and Armpatch 177. There are now 2,124 armpatches in the gallery.


1/9/07 Buddy Light Giveaway Winners Selected

     I would like to thank everyone who entered the Buddy Light Contest. The winners have been selected and notified by email. So far only one winner has replied to confirm his information. Congratulations to Tony Ross from the Lindsey Fire Department of Pennsylvania. He will be receiving his Buddy Light shortly. I will be updating the winner list on the Contests Page.


1/6/07 Line of Duty Death - Upland, IN

Line of Duty Death      Our condolences to the Hall family and the Upland Volunteer Fire Department of Upland, Indiana. FireFighter Sidney Hall, 52, a 15 year volunteer with the Upland Volunteer Fire Department, died Friday January 5, 2007. Two days earlier, Sidney had responded to a structure fire at the home of a Marion Firefighter. After taking a few steps in the front door, Sidney fell into the basement through a hole that the fire had burned. He was rescued by his fellow firefighters and airlifted to Parkview Hospital in Fort Wayne. He succumbed to his injuries two days later. Seven other firefighters were injured during the rescue.

     For more news, information, and photos, please visit the Sidney Hall Memorial in the Fallen Brothers Section.


1/5/07 Line of Duty Death - Barnstead, NH

Line of Duty Death      Our condolences to the Jones family and the Barnstead Fire-Rescue Department of Barnstead, New Hampshire. FireFighter Stephen Jones, 56, a 40 year volunteer with the Barnstead Fire-Rescue Department, died Friday December 29, 2006. Stephen was in his personal vehicle enroute to the station to deliver a piece of apparatus for maintenance when he suffered chest pains and difficulty breathing. He pulled over and called for help. He was transported by ambulance to Concord Hospital where died from his injuries.

     For more news, information, and photos, please visit the Stephen Jones Memorial in the Fallen Brothers Section.


1/4/07 Armpatch Gallery Update

     Today I updated the Armpatch Gallery with 24 new armpatches, including these two submissions from the Livermore Fire Department of Livermore, Maine and the McKinney Fire Department of McKinney, Texas.

1/2/07 Happy New Year and Contest Information

     I would like to thank everyone who entered the Buddy Light Contest. After alot of thought Jim Berry (of Buddy Light) and myself have decided to draw 10 winners of 1 Buddy Light each as opposed to having only 1 winner of 10 Buddy Lights. It just makes more sense to me. I will be drawing the winners names and contacting them via email before posting the winners on the Contests Page.
