The loss of our retired Brother Maurice “Dutch” Hehman, is felt deeply within our local and state organization. We mourn with his family and friends and celebrate the extraordinary life of this remarkable man who devoted his life to protecting the lives of firefighters and the communities he served. His commitment, dedication, and loyalty did not end with his retirement in 1989. Dutch was an active member in the union, and he will continue to live on through our past and present members with the knowledge and traditions he has passed onto us. He was an exceptional man, firefighter, and leader. Rest easy Dutch, you will be great missed.
Rest easy Dutch. Thank you for being my friend. You were one of Firefighting’ 45’s best.💔🙏🍀

Thank you for your thoughts and prayers. Both of our brothers are out of surgery and recovering. We got to spend a little time with them and their families today. They are grateful for the out pouring support you all have shown. ❤️ -----‐‐--‐----‐ We ask that you please take a moment out of your day to send positive energy, encouragement, support, healing thoughts, and prayers to our Local 45 Brothers, Bob Hug and Ryan Whaley, as they enter surgery tomorrow morning for a kidney donation/transplant.
A brief backstory: Brother Hug has been battling kidney disease and is in desperate need of a kidney transplant for well over a year. Bob has been on dialysis for over 6 months now. He has been through many ups and downs with possible donors and matches. We are thankful to everyone who stepped up an took the swab test to be a match for Bob. Over 40 people came back as matches, and Local 45 Brother, Ryan Whaley, turned out to be the perfect match to Bob. After discussion with his family, Ryan is selflessly donating a kidney to Bob. This is one of the bravest acts of lifesaving which is only possible due to the selfless decision Brother Whaley made to donate his kidney to Brother Hug. This donation and transplant will transform lives and reshape the futures of these men and their families. This is what the fire service and fire family truly is all about. The bond and friendship we forge is everlasting.
Sending love, strength, positivity, good energy, and prayers to Bob and Ryan today, tomorrow, and thereafter for a speedy recovery!
