SM Fire Department Partners with Angel Flights to Attend Looney Family Funeral

On June 21st members of the Santa Monica Fire Department attended the memorial service for little Noah Looney, who died in a tragic accident in the McClure Tunnel on June 13th, also injuring several of his family members. Santa Monica Fire Fighters Local 1109 raised over $12,000 to assist the Looney family in their time of need.

Battalion Chief Mark Bridges and Deputy Chief Tom Clemo attended the service, and The Las Vegas Fire Department Pipes and Drums played Amazing Grace as part of the memorial service.

The flight to the service from Santa Monica to Las Vegas would not have been possible without the generosity of Angel Flights West; a philanthropic organization that provides free flights to individuals for causes just like this. It is with deep appreciation that Santa Monica Fire Department recognizes pilot Jim McElroy and the Angel Flight Team for their generous contribution.
