    Default Chief Dan Packer, Washington

    Message from Washington Fire Chiefs:

    All Fire Service Members:

    It is with the deepest sorrow and regret that we inform you that Chief Dan Packer, Fire Chief with East Pierce Fire & Rescue and WFC Immediate Past President, died in a California Wildfire on Saturday, July 27, 2008. Chief Packer was deployed on Friday, July 26, 2008 and was serving as Division Supervisor in the Siskiyou mountains in Northern California. He was over run by the fire when the wind shifted unexpectedly.

    Our thoughts and prayers are with his family, his fire department and the fire service to which he dedicated his life.

    This is the second firefighter fatality from Washington State on this fire. On Friday, July 25, 2008, Firefighter Andrew Palmer with the Olympic National Park died after being struck by a tree.

    All fire station American flags should be lowered to half-staff from time of announcement until 24 hours after conclusion of services. All fire department badges should be shrouded from time of announcement until 24 hours after conclusion of services.

    More information will be released as soon as it becomes available.

    Mike Brown
    Executive Director
    Washington Fire Chiefs
