Firefighter Dane Smothers Jr., critically injured at a fire on Capitol Hill in early August, was visited by brother and sister firefighters on September 26th. Smothers, a member of Fire Fighters Local 36, was presented with a quilt containing a complete patch collection from all DC fire units and organizations by members of Platoon 2 from his company, Engine 3, along with Firefighter Donna Tideback of Engine 18, who hand sewed the quilt. The Smothers family thanked the staff at Medstar Washington Hospital Center, "who saved Dane's life, as well as DC Firefighters Local 36 and the DC Firefighters Burn Foundation Family Service Team, who provided constant support" while Smothers was hospitalized, reports Fire Fighters Local 36 on their Facebook page.
