It is with heavy hearts that Lewis County Search and Rescue learned of the passing of Mr. John Christman. Mr. Christman was a friend of many in the Fire and EMS community and Lewis County Search and Rescue was lucky to have known him. We commend his dedication to his community and the fire service. Our thoughts and prayers are with the Christman family and Lowville Fire. Rest easy John, you will forever be missed.
Workers Memorial Day is observed on April 28th every year to honor and remember workers who lost their lives or suffered injuries or illnesses due to their work. It is a day to raise awareness about the importance of workplace safety and to advocate for better working conditions.
