Tuscaloosa, Alabama – May 17, 2012 – On June 2, 2012 the Alabama Fire College will be the scene of two unique events honoring firefighters.

3rd Annual Stairclimb

Loss of a Firefighter

It is with a very heavy heart I write to inform you of the loss of a firefighter, a smoke jumper, and one of our Forest Service family. Luke Sheehy, a 28-year-old firefighter from Susanville, Calif., died Monday afternoon as a result of injuries received on a wildfire on the Modoc National Forest in northeast California. Luke, a member of the California Smokejumpers based out of Redding, was struck by a dead tree on the Saddle Back Fire in the South Warner Wilderness about 15 miles southeast of Alturas, Calif.


Our Chapter

While the number of firefighters who lost their lives in 2001 is markedly higher, the fatalities since represent the peril inherent in our profession. When firefighters are lost, families are left behind. The Terry Farrell Fund is there to help with kids’ education, medical bills and support in countless other ways.
