NJ firefighter, 21, killed in crash while responding to emergency call on Christmas Day
REMEMBERING 21 YEAR OLD FIREFIGHTER NATALIE DEMPSEY...
A CHRISTMAS TREE PROMINENTLY DISPLAYED IN FRONT OF THE MIZPAH VOLUNTEER FIRE DEPARTMENT...IT WAS BLACK AND PURPLE BUNTING IN HONOR OF A YOUNG LIFE LOST ON CHRISTMAS.
NATALIE LEFT HER HOME JUST AFTER 6 AM TO RESPOND TO A CALL OF A CHIMNEY FIRE...
BUT, ON THE WAY TO THE STATION... HER HONDA LOST CONTROL ON LANDIS AVENUE, STRUCK A GUARDRAIL, AND SHE WAS KILLED.
RETURNING FROM THE FIRE, THE CREW WENT TO THE CRASH SCENE... NOT KNOWING AT FIRST IT WAS NATALIE.
