Flags will be lowered on August 3 to honor a Spokane firefighter who recently passed away.
Ed Foster suffered a cardiac event one day after retiring from the Spokane Fire Department. Cardiac incidents are a leading cause of death for firefighters and in light of the circumstances involved in his passing, Foster’s death is considered Line-of-Duty.
Foster joined SFD in 1993 and dedicated his life to serving Spokane citizens. When leaving his final shift, he told his colleagues, “Time flies. Please remember to be kind and do the right thing.”
