North Irwin Volunteer Fire Company Fallen Firefighter James Gumbert

         On November 10th, 2010 at 02:40 hours, North Irwin Volunteer Fire Company was activated to 49 Webster Avenue in North Irwin for a Working House Fire. Firefighter Gumbert responded to the department and went into cardiac arrest at the Fire Station. Firefighter James Gumbert "Jimbo" will always be remembered as true friend and dedicated member of North Irwin Volunteer Fire Company. 

         Jim's goal was to train and educate junior firefighters of North Irwin and the surrounding communities in a program he helped to start called "The Norwin Area Multi-Station Junior Firefighter Training Program." The Program not only focused on education and training of junior firefighters, but also to help young firefighters develop working relationships with each other and to pave the way for the futures of each department involved. Jim served as treasurer of the organization throughout it's existence.  

       Jim served as a Junior Firefighter Advisor for North Irwin Volunteer Fire Company's Junior Corp. He also helped to organize various things in the community which was highlighted in the 2010 North Irwin Community Days. Jim responded to 206 career calls with North Irwin.

 

"Were going to remember what Jim did for the company, what he did for the community, and what he gave to us. He made our fire company and North Irwin a better place to live." - Former Fire Chief Thomas Harrison
