In Remembrance of Norman H. Kendrick, Firefighter
Engine Co. 1
After arriving to a structure fire at the rear of 507 S. 5th Street, Fireman Kendrick prepared to depart the running board of the apparatus. Unfortunately before he could do so, Engine Co. 4 skidded on wet pavement and collided with Engine Co. 1, crushing Fireman Kendrick between the apparatus. Three other firefighters were also injured in the incident. However, Fireman Kendrick died at the hospital approximately 5 hours later.
