Toledo, OH |  Firefighters were dispatched to a six-unit apartment fire on January 26, 2014, near Tolendo around 1530 hours.  Two members, Stephen A. Machicinski and James A. Dickman were killed in the line of duty.

As they were battling the blaze, they became disoriented and suffering injuries inside the building.  Firefighters rescued their Brothers from the apartment complex, beginning life-saving measures. Both were transported to the Hospital.  They did not survive.

Firefighter Stephen A. Machicinski,42, was a 16-year veteran and was appointed on March 30, 1998.  Firefighter James A. Dickman, 31, had only been on the job for six months and was appointed back in September 2013.  They both worked at the same firehouse.

WE WILL NEVER FORGET is a Tribute to Firefighters that have died in the Line of Duty.  Their Legacy and Memories will Forever Live On remembering their commitment, dedication and who these great Heroes Are.

We offer our sincere and deepest sympathies to Firefighters Machicinski and Dickman’s Families, to their mourning Brothers and Sisters, to their Fire Department and Staff, to their Friends and Communities.  We are so sorry for your Loss.  RIP.  Your Brothers and Sisters got it from here.
