Past volunteer members of Station #21 (Lecontes Mills Department)

December 29, 2015, 12:49:06 PM Jessil

Hello everyone. I'm brand new to this site so bare with me as I learn my way around, please. I originally joined this site hoping to find some discussions concerning my father's previous time as a volunteer firefighter for station #21. I haven't found much discussion that goes back before 2005. My father was killed by his then wife, by a gunshot wound to his chest. His name was Kenneth Francis Leigey and he was killed on March 28, 1998. Not to mention it happened in front of his 2 sons, my twin brothers who were only 7 years old at the time. I was hoping to get on here and find a memorial type discussion for him, or pictures and discussions on his involvement in the station. What was his position at the time of his death? Who else were volunteers at the same time as him that could tell me something about him or what kind of person he was? I didn't get to know my father in the 11 years of my life that he was alive so I'm curious about him. Help me gather some more information on my deceased father, please, so that I may pass some stories down to my 2 children who will never have the experience of meeting their maternal grandfather.. If anyone has any information they feel would be helpful, PLEASE add it to the forum. Help me, I'm begging you. I'm finally ready, at 28 years old and a mother of two, to learn about who my father was, his interests and hobbies, and just things that I'm unaware of now that are fun and interesting. Thanks everyone! Looking forward to some responses. REMEMBER... This happened back in March of 1998 so information on his involvement with the station is pretty old. Lol

Ohio Firefighter Line Of Duty Death

December 28, 2015, 05:41:14 PM CCF Administrator

A young, recently married Hamilton, Ohio Firefighter was killed in the Line of Duty while operating at that house fire early this Monday. Firefighter Patrick Wolterman, 28, fell through the first floor into the basement of the Pater Avenue home. Initial reports indicated that someone may have been trapped inside, when Hamilton Firefighters responded at 0110 hours, but it was later determined the home was empty-the family was away. After entry a "mayday" of a firefighter down was transmitted.  HFD members rescued Firefighter Wolterman and immediately performed and attempted life saving measures while transporting him to the hospital, where he succumbed. Firefighter Wolterman had been hired as a member of the HFD earlier this year, but was an experienced and well respected Firefighter in the greater Cincinnati area.

ULSTER COUNTY NY FIREFIGHTER LODD - Dwelling Fire

We regret to pass on to you that 19 year old volunteer Firefighter from the Mount Marion FD (Ulster County, north of NYC, south of Albany) was killed in the Line of Duty last night. The Mount Marion Firefighter died in the Line of Duty in what was initially reported as a chimney fire in the Centerville Fire District.

Centerville Fire responded to a call at 1859 hours at 11 Fel Qui Road along with mutual aid from Mount Marion. Firefighters had fire in the basement of the dwelling and while operating, something went wrong, MAYDAY was transmitted and the Mount Marion Firefighter was rescued/removed from the dwelling. Life saving attempts were unsuccessful at scene, while transportation and at the hospital in Kingston.
 
Our condolences to all those affected.
Much more to follow. Rest in Peace.
