“East Olympia firefighter remembered as devoted volunteer”
“A longtime volunteer with East Olympia Fire District 6 who suffered a medical emergency while responding to a fire Friday is being remembered as a devoted firefighter.
“John Ostergard was a volunteer fire captain and president of the Washington State Firefighters Association. He was a volunteer firefighter with East Olympia for 27 years, said Chief Warren Peterson.”
“Ostergard was on the scene of a structure fire Friday night south of Yelm when he suffered a medical emergency and was taken to Providence St. Peter Hospital in Olympia.”
