Never Forget

 
FEBRUARY 23, 1982

On this night in 1982, Lt Martin "Butch" Melody and Firefighter Joseph Halas made the ultimate sacrifice and lost their lives while battling a fire at the Russo Fur Company on Osborne Street. They remain the only members of the Danbury Fire Department to die in the line of duty. They will live on in our hearts and memories forever.

NEVER FORGET
