FF/Medic John Ulmschneider and Wounded Members Remembered on Anniversary of Tragedy
Three years ago today at approximately 1930 hours on the evening of April 15, 2016, FF/Medic John “Skillet Ulmschneider and his partner responded on Paramedic Ambulance 823 with Rescue Engine 827 to a “check on the welfare” call. After several attempts to make contact with the home occupant, forcible entry was initiated. Upon entry into the home, multiple gunshots were fired, leaving several wounded. FF/EMT Kevin Swain of MVFD was one of the several wounded after being shot multiple times. Brother Ulmschneider was fatally shot in the upper torso. Rest In Peace John Ulmschneider. Kevin, your perseverance is an inspiration to us all.
