The Hobart L1641 Honor Guard sent a “care package” of @blackriflecoffee to the nurses and hospital staff of our city. They’re on the front lines with us during this emergency and we want to thank them for what they do! Also a big shoutout to @blackriflecoffee for their “can for can” donation to healthcare workers in these trying times. Way to keep up the morale!

Fire Service Line of Duty Deaths

April 13, 1995 - LODD
Firefighter Herlof T. Hansen III, 39
Hobart Fire Department. Hobart, IN
While searching for two reportedly trapped occupants at an early-morning fire in an occupied 2-1/2-story frame dwelling, Firefighter Hansen and his partner became trapped on the second floor when the fire came up the stairwell. They had run out of air and were able to make their way to a bedroom window, where Firefighter Hansen helped his partner onto a ladder. Suddenly, the room flashed over and he was killed. Four other firefighters were injured, none seriously. Hansen was also a volunteer firefighter in Merrillville, and was a firefighter in Gary, IN prior to joining Hobart. Firefighter Hansen was the first Hobart firefighter to die in the line of duty.

With our current state we chose to keep our memorial service intimate. Today we continue to remember our Fallen brother “Teddy” Hansen the third. Who 25 years ago made the ultimate sacrifice in our line of service. Let us never forget Teddy and lose sight of his honorable service to this city and department. Let this yearly memorial humble us in remembering the dangers we face everyday and how we as a brotherhood need to stay united for we may be all we have in any given moment.

#WATCH: A touching moment as hospital staff and members of the Elkhart Firefighters Local 338 and the Elkhart Police Department lined the hallways to watch their fellow firefighter, Wade Snider, be transferred by helicopter to a hospital in Chicago. Wade is currently on life support after being diagnosed with Legionnaire's disease. Wade is an EMT and Battalion Chief for the Elkhart City Fire Department. His family is attempting to raise money for his medical costs which are piling up. To do so you can click on the link below.
