We Mourn Today for Fallen Worcester Firefighter, Lt. Jason Menard

The entire Massachusetts AFL-CIO community mourns the loss of Worcester Firefighter, Lieutenant Jason Menard, who died heroically in the line of duty last night, saving residents trapped in a three-family home. One of Lt. Menard's final acts on earth was selflessly saving his crew before he became trapped. We send our deepest condolences and prayers to Lt. Menard's family, especially his wife, Tina and their three young children. Our hearts go out to the Worcester Firefighters and members of Ladder 5 who must continue to bravely fight for our safety even as this tragedy weighs so heavily on their hearts.

– Steven A. Tolman, President MA AFL-CIO
