Procession for fallen firefighter lines road from Toledo to Sandusky

Posted: Updated:

Even before the sun rose, residents began lining up to join a procession to honor fallen Toledo firefighter James Dickman.

More than 100 vehicles lined up early Friday morning to pay tribute to one of two firefighters killed in the line of duty.

The procession lined the road from Toledo all the way to a church in Sandusky. Along the 70-mile journey to the church, dozens of fire departments lined their trucks to pay tribute. Other local emergency workers and private citizens also turned out in droves to show their support.

Meanwhile, visitation for the other firefighter killed, Private Machcinski, was also scheduled for Friday. His funeral will be Saturday at 10am. His family asks that tributes be made to a memorial fund established for the Dickman family. Donations can be made at any PNC bank.
