First and foremost, we extend our prayers and condolence to the family, friends, and company members of FF Ritchey. You are all in our prayers and thoughts during this difficult time.
We have fielded many questions and concerns from individuals asking how they can help and what the NNFA is doing to help. Our Member Resource Committee lead by VP Venezia are currently working with the department safety officer, Lt Lucas, to assist our members affected by this incident in every way possible, and to assist the department as a whole where it is appropriate and allowed. While FF Ritchey was not a member of the NNFA, we are in full support of our members involved with the incident and we stand with the entire department during this unfortunate time.
