The members of Engine 2, Rescue 1 and the Office of the Deputy Fire Chief send our deepest thoughts and prayers to the family and friends of Lt. Kevin McRae of Engine Co. 6, who passed away while operating on a 2nd Alarm fire in the 1300 block of 7th St NW, earlier this morning.
Lt. Kevin McRae was a true fireman’s fireman. Lt. Kevin “Lightbulb” McRae could be remembered for that smile that was always on his face and his passion for the job. Lt. McRae served the DCFD for 24 years, including being assigned to Rescue 1 as a firefighter and then becoming a Technician of Rescue 1.
The sudden loss of Lt. Kevin “Lightbulb” McRae has been a difficult one, we continue to pray for his family along with the entire DCFD, including Engine Co 6 and Truck Co 4.
