Redding Fire Department brothers and sisters, as well as our brothers and sisters from the entire region, are all united in remembering the loss of our brother Marshall Sanford one year ago.
It is hard to believe that a year has gone by, since we lost not only one of our own in the line of duty but also lost someone who has been a driving force in our department for many years. Marshall touched our lives in all aspects of Fire and EMS but moreover, represented our department, our family, as a proud shepherd of a service steeped in the tradition of commitment to our community. As many have said in tribute, Marshall would do anything to help and was a good friend to all of us. In Marshall’s memory today, please take a moment to reflect on his life, his accomplishments and his friendship. He is certainly missed by all of us.

For advice on staying safe this winter, especially when supplementing the heat in your home during colder weather, read the US Fire Administration’s advice on Heating Fire Safety.
Also, remember that unvented fueled heaters (including Kerosene space heaters) are not legal in Connecticut, for very good reasons! (CT General Statutes, Ch 541, Sec 29-318)
Redding and West Redding firefighters joined hundreds of others from Connecticut and as far away as Toronto to pay tribute to our fallen brother from Easton. It was a somber but beautiful day to bid farewell to Lieutenant Russell Neary.
The Redding Fire & EMS Company No. 1 is deeply saddened to learn of the line-of-duty death of Easton Fire Lieutenant Russ Neary.
Lieutenant Neary made the ultimate sacrifice keeping our neighboring community of Easton safe during Hurricane Sandy.
Our thoughts and prayers dwell on the loss of our brother, and to the Easton Fire Department during their time of need.
