Passing of Fire Fighter/Medic Lieutenant Chris Hill

It is with profound sadness that I announce the passing of Firefighter/Paramedic Lieutenant Chris Hill. 

Chris's passing is a deep loss for us all. The insidious cancer that he lived with for the last 18 months shows no remorse and leaves little solace for any of us.

I had the honor of promoting Chris to Lieutenant on August 12, 2012, and my wife and I have carried the honor and duty as we have helped Chris and his family through this time of turmoil.

Staff and union officials are with the Hill family currently, and will be returning to the county soon. I want to thank the West Manheim and Penn Township Pennsylvania Fire Departments for standing guard over Chris and his family until we could arrive. 

Please continue to keep Chris's wife Jenn and his children Amy and Evan along with the entire Hill family in your thoughts and prayers.

As additional information is available it will be communicated through email and through the union.  Coordination for the Department will be through the Special Events Unit

  1. I went to Junior High School and High School with Chris. While friends were coming back from the Gulf War, we all made it a point to party. A group of us came down to Virginia to be in his wedding at Falls Church. Is there a way to find out any more information about arrangements, contacts, etc. for us up in Connecticut that used to run around with him? Thank you.
