    I would like the name of Joe Umbach added to your honor roll. Joe was a member of the Easton, IL Fire Department for many years before cancer took him from us. Joe was also past president of the IL Association of Fire Protection Districts and was involved in numerous other fire service causes. He was a real crusty!

    Unhappy 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.

    Both Killed when the apparatus they were riding on flipped over. The call was a false alarm.

    Just North of South Central


    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.
