We all know that you never think about the Fire Department until you need them. But there are some people who go out of their way to make sure you never have to think about it, and they volunteer their time to help keep us all safe. The Johnson County Fire Auxiliary Spaghetti Dinner and Silent Auction serves as a thank you to a lot of these brave souls.
UPDATE: The victim has been identified as 31-year-old Staff Sargent Chad Blackwell. Detective Ken Landes of the Johnson County Sheriff’s Department told KSIS in a telephone interview that the Johnson County Coroner has ruled the death a suicide.
