Webster Groves, MO: Fire Captain - LODD FYI

Captain Dennis Mignerone of the Webster Groves Fire Department died while on duty on Tuesday, January 21 at approximately 9 PM.

I want to take a moment to share some of the details surrounding Dennis' death, but equally important, I want to mention some of the details of Dennis's life. I have know Dennis personally for nearly 25 years, and worked with him for 18 years. He was a very good firefighter, paramedic, coach, father, and husband. Many of you have no doubt run calls with Dennis on the highway, or large fires. He was rather quiet, but very professional and dedicated to the fire service. While on duty Tuesday evening, he began to experience chest pain. The crew began to administer to Dennis and then transported to St. Anthony's. Dennis coded en-route to the hospital. The medic's, his crew mates, tried unsuccessfully to resuscitate him. He was ultimately pronounced dead at St. Anthony's Hospital. Dennis was 50 years old, a husband, and the father of three daughters. Dennis had angioplasty about a year ago, but was doing well and was without symptoms. His death was a complete shock and totally unexpected. Dennis had spent his entire career with Webster Groves FD, beginning in 1976, and was currently serving as Medical Officer for the department.

Dennis was a very good person and very popular within the Webster Groves FD. The entire department is in a state of shock as you might imagine. Since this occurred in the late evening, many of the guys knew nothing about his death until the arrived for work on Wednesday morning. Please keep Dennis, his family, and the Webster Groves firefighters in your thoughts and prayers. We are going to ask for volunteers to staff our reserve aerial and ambulance to cover Webster Groves during the period of visitation and funeral, so that his on duty coworkers can attend the services and pay their respects. It is our honor to assist our brothers and sisters in Webster Groves during this time of need. Thank you.

*** FireNet Group Of The Day: ***

CFN, Columbia Fire Net, is a product of the Columbia, Missouri Fire Department. It was established to provide information via pagers to Chief Officers, Rescue and HazMat Team members and eventually to any interested CFD member. The pagers are provided at no cost to CFD members. With 4 pin options available, members could select any 2 additional types of pages. Obviously their individual pin, then a CFD all call pin and their choice of 2 more. About 2 dozen elected to receive CFN as one of their options. As of this writing there are 4 who are authorized to send out national pages. National paging will remain a very closely held authority. Since we are new, we have a rather steep learning curve. As Fire Chief, Wm. Markgraf is the nominal head of the system. The other 3 "national dispatchers" are employees of the CFD.

The telephone number for the Columbia Fire Department is 573 874 7391.
Home number for Darrin Arends is 573 687 3461.
