Firefighters and firefighters from the National Guard and the National Weather Service were among thousands who turned out for a memorial service for two firefighters killed last week in a crash in western Pennsylvania.
Firefighters and firefighting equipment, including fire trucks and portable heaters, were in full swing as the service was held at the Pennsylvania Statehouse in Harrisburg.
The two firefighters were identified as Christopher M. Johnson, 38, and David P. Johnson Jr., 38. “
It’s also a way to honor those who lost their lives during the devastating events of September 11, 2001.”
The two firefighters were identified as Christopher M. Johnson, 38, and David P. Johnson Jr., 38.
They were both from Pennsylvania and were stationed in Pittsburgh.
Tiller said the fire service will honor their families during the memorial service and the family will be given a free commemorative plate.
He said the family would also be given special dispensation to have the plates inscribed with their names and photos.
The two victims were working on an electrical installation in the town of Bridgeton when the accident occurred.
