Fire Chief Jim Murphy passes away

With a heavy heart, the NLRFD announces the passing of their Fire Chief Jim Murphy.  Chief Murphy had over 42 years of fire service to his credit.  He loved the fire service and the men and women involved in it.  He came out of retirement to take the NLRFD Chief's position two and a half years ago.  He and his wonderful wife Kit fell in love with NLR and the people of NLR.  This is a great loss to the firefighting community and he will be greatly missed by all.  Memorial arrangements are as follows:
