Memorial Roll of Honor
Spring Valley Hook & Ladder Co. #1 has had only one Line
Of Duty Death in its 101 year history, Ex-Chief Robert Pitt,
who died rushing into a building to save a fellow firefighter
in December of 1964. Pitt was at a Spring Valley Methodist
Church dinner when the alarm sounded, and was one of the
firefighters on the scene. The fire started in a second-floor
*apartment and destroyed a block of wood-frame stores and
the apartments above them, at the corner of Main Street and
*Lawrence Street. Pitt went back into the building to look for
a fellow firefighter, who also suffered smoke inhalation and
burns to his hands. Pitt collapsed in the middle of Main Street
and died at Good Samaritan Hospital in Suffern, NY from smoke
inhalation. Pitt was 48 when he died. Each year, the Spring Valley
Fire Department holds a Memorial Day service, remembering Pitt
and all our departed brothers.

Engineer Kirk Schafer
North Central Fire Dist.
Born March 20, 1965
Died July 28, 2001
Kirk was killed when an overpressurized domestic water tank exploded. The tank was propelled over 100' in the air and landed on top of the engine as Kirk was shutting down the booster pump. Pieces of the tank struck Kirk in the head..he never regained consciousness. He left behind a wife and a 5 year old boy.
Kirk (like all of the family) was/is a staunt believer in the organ donor program. Our cousin was the first heart/ lung transplant performed in California over 12 years ago. She is still alive to this day. His organ donations probably saved a few people.

Anndee Huber, a 10th grade Fire Explorer, was ejected from the cab of the fire truck, May 22, 2003, when driver Ron J. Caillier, 46, of Newcastle, lost control of the vehicle, according to the Wyoming Highway Patrol. After Anndee's death, the firefighter at the wheel, Ronald Caillier, was charged with drunken driving.
The tragedy has led to calls for a ban on alcohol in firehouses in Wyoming and elsewhere around the country.
While she lacked "crust" she was up and coming in the fire service and showed great promise. If any good came from her death, it was bringing the alcohol issue to the forefront.Buckle Up, Slow Down, Arrive Alive
