Hey Mike any word on if this is being treated as a LODD & if so does the family want fire departments there or do they want a private service? Just wandering since it is so close and the ease of being able to go and honor a fallen Chief.

While I cannot speak to the classification of the death, I can confirm that out-of-county agencies are apparently planning to attend the services with personnel and apparatus.

The NCSFA transmitted this message, in addition to the arrangements:

Out-of-county agencies that are planning to attend services on Thursday, June 14: contact Michael Martin with Harnett County FMO with number of attendees and apparatus. This will assist in planning. 910-984-6293 (mobile) or mmartin@harnett.org.
