    Default Mendota Fire LODD

    To all:

    I have a sad message to pass along this evening. I was informed today, that Lt. Scott Mumm, of the Mendota Fire Department passed away following a fire last evening. Below is the department press release and arrangements.

    RIP Brother Mumm!

    POC Lt. Scott Mumm, 34 years old, a member of the Mendota Fire Department died shortly after arrival at Mendota Community Hospital on Monday night around 10:45 p.m. Scott had returned home around 8:15 p.m. from a fire call where his assignment was assisting with filling water tenders. He had gone home and then to bed with intentions of reporting for work, at his regular job at midnight. When his wife tried to wake him, he did not respond. ALS efforts by members of the Mendota Fire Department and the ER staff at Mendota Community Hospital were unsuccessful.

    Scott is survived by his wife Melissa, daughter Morgan 12, son Brett 7, and daughter Abby 6. Also his parents Alan and Patty, brothers Greg and Nick.

    Nick,

    Do you know if this is when the family is requesting that all firefighters do their walk through or just mfd? Myself and another firefighter would like to go to his visitation but we want to make sure we are going when the family is asking.

    Ox:

    On Thursday, 7 p.m. is time for the walk through. Stop by Mendota's station, a group of us are coming down to cover Mendota during the visitation.

    Stay safe,

    Default To any who wish to attend...

    One of the posts was asking about if the walk through thursday night is for just MFD or any firefighters. I am on MFD, It is open to any Firefigters or EMS personel who wish to attend, they ask that you wear your dress uniform(whatever that consists of as it's different with all departments) and be there around 6:30 pm behind merrit funeral home. I'm sure the family and department with appreciate any and all who attend. Any questions contact Mendota Fire Department (815)539-3434.
