Joseph ‘Sepi’ Vagnier 1976 – 1997
It was 22 years ago today that Firefighter Vagnier succumbed to injuries sustained two days earlier in the line of duty. Joey was part of a Rescue crew attempting to check occupied vehicles caught in flash-flood waters when he was swept off his feet and pinned under a box truck by the rushing water. Station 4 has been diligent in making sure this type of tragedy never occurs again. There currently are 14 Members of the Organization outfitted and trained in Swift Water Rescue.
