Matthew Tarentino's STORY

Matt was my cousin. He went above and beyond the standard of community policing, unfortunately we lost him on May 30th to a car accident on his way to graduation for the D.A.R.E. class he was teaching. He has two little boys and a little girl who was just born and leaves behind his wonderful wife Vicki and his mother and brother. Our family has taken it hard, but we haven’t heard anything except good things about how he always had pride in his work, he went above and beyond for the Summit community, he was the first D.A.R.E. officer in years and reconnected with the community where communication had been lost.

Robert O'Neal's STORY

On April 13th 2016, the Fairmount Fire Department was dispatched for a fire alarm activation at 12 Henry Beach Drive. Having a crew in-house, car 2 (Primerano) and Engine 7 quickly went enroute with Chief Clarke driving, Captain Guinn as officer and firefighter O'Neal and Lieutenant Barlow in the back. Arriving within 2 minutes of dispatch, units found the front door open with thick black smoke emanating from it. An elderly female was in the doorway of the residence, yelling that her husband was still trapped inside and could not get out on his own. The conditions were radioed back to channel 1, filling the box assignment, requesting an ambulance, and a hose line was stretched. The elderly female was removed from the doorway and brought to the yard, and a search for the male was immediately conducted. Inside the house, the crew encountered a near zero visibility atmosphere, with severe clutter and hoarding conditions present. A small path of travel was available, and upon locating the male, the crew realized that they would not be able to get past the victim with the hose line, so the line was brought back out, along with the elderly invalid victim. The victim was then brought to WAVES ambulance and transported for smoke inhalation and eventually released. The fire was brought under control shortly after the victim was removed, minimizing damage to the house. This incident and subsequent actions taken, serve as a model for all in the fire service to follow and has brought great credit upon yourself and the Fairmount Fire Department. There is no such thing as a "routine" call, always be prepared, and expect the unexpected. Congratulations on a job well done.
