It is with a heavy hearts and tear filled eyes we have to make this announcement but we lost one of our own last night to a fatal car accident. We lost our brother Jr. Firefighter Mikey Zier. Mikey was our Jr. Captain and a member of the department for 3 years. He was a great person with a big heart and a great smile, always there with a helping hand. Mikey you will NEVER be forgotten. Heaven truly gained an angel. Words cannot describe how we all feel right now. God bless you and your family through this extremely tough time.

Rest easy brother and watch down on us all when that whistle blows.
