It is great sadness that we inform you of the passing of our friend, Chris Harmon, today in Columbia. Many of you probably didn't know Chris personally as he was the husband of our own Zorrina Harmon, the membership benefits and insurance coordinator for our South Carolina State Firefighters' Association. Zorrina was instrumental in the initial response to our loss of the Charleston 9 and remained in Charleston for several months in the summer of 2007 making sure the families of the 9 were taken care of and helping with the organization of our Team and the establishment of the CFD counseling unit. Chris visited many times and always supported Zorrina in her work with us and all firefighters in our State. Chris was 41 years of age and is survived by Zorrina, their three children, and a large extended family. Our thoughts and prayers are with Zorrina and the Harmon family during this very difficult time. Funeral arrangements will be announced later this week.
