It is with a heavy heart to learn of a tragic loss of a brave soul in the firefighting community. On Monday, June 11, 2016, Lewes, Delaware firefighter Tim McClanahan was killed when he fell from a helicopter during a training exercise with DART (Delaware Aviation Rescue Team). During a trip there yesterday, my family and I were stunned to see firetrucks and police cars on nearly every overpass and at almost every intersection, and people lining the roads. It was a very chilling sight to see all of those things, but it just showed how big a part of the whole community, and even state, a man can be. He was a great person and he served the community well for years. He will be dearly missed by all, and not just in Delaware, but everywhere in this great nation. In Brick Borough today, we assembled every fire truck and firefighter in the area to honor and recognize this great man and all of his deeds. At every intersection, there are different departments and stations. Ladder trucks proudly raise the American colors as the casket travels beneath them. The column of fire trucks is lead by old Engine 3, with the casket on board, and followed by a dozen other true from station 1. The event closed off all area roads until 2:00 PM, and all crews returned to their respective quarters by 3:00.
