Hello, all,

It is with deep regret that I inform you of the death of Volunteer Firefighter Michael Sims, 38, of the Highland Hose Company in Tarentum, Pennsylvania, which occurred on Wednesday, November 3rd, 1999.

He died as a result of massive head injuries sustained when he fell from the jump seat of a ladder truck while responding to an alarm the previous day.

The 21-year veteran is survived by his wife and two sons.

May he rest in eternal peace and may the Good Lord watch over and protect the loved ones that he left behind.

Be safe & God bless,
Chief Hank
