Firefighter Patrick Wolterman - LODD 28 December 2015

Last Alarm - 28 December 2015

Today we honor Firefighter Patrick Wolterman of the Hamilton Fire Department.
Firefighter Wolterman was killed in the line of duty early this morning when he fell through
the floor at a residential fire.  Initial reports indicated two elderly civilians might have been trapped in the structure though ultimately the home was found to be unoccupied at the time of the fire.  Firefighters made entry around 0117 and the mayday call was given just three minutes later.  Wolterman began his service to the City of Hamilton in April of this year and had previous service in other fire departments including The Colerain Township Fire Department.

Patrick Wolterman was newly married.  We extend our sincere condolences
to his wife and family in this time of loss.
