Prayers to the Moss family .It is with heavy heart that we announce the untimely passing of Junior Firefighter Justin Moss. Justin is the son of President and Deputy Chief Ryan Moss and his wife Kristine Moss, and brother of Courtney Moss.
Justin was the type of firefighter and member we build our future around. Saying he will be sorely missed doesn’t begin to express our feelings.
Please keep Justin and the Moss family in your hearts during this time.
