My condolences to the Broomsmith family and the Seaside Heights Volunteer Fire Department of New Jersey. FireFighter John Broomsmith, 44, a member of the Water Rescue Team and a recent graduate of Ocean City Fire Academy, died Sunday February 4, 2007. John had responded to an alarm activation at the Coty Marina. Firefighters cleared the alarm and returned to the fire station. Later that night he suffered an apparent heart attack and passed away. I have created a permanent memorial for John on my website. More news, information, and photos can be found at:

If there is any additional information or photos you would like added to this memorial, please don't hesitate to contact me.
