Middleport Fire Fighter passes away

The Middleport Fire Department announced the death of Kevin Dailey Tuesday on their Facebook page. Dailey was a lifetime member of Middleport Fire Department and also Richland Township near Lancaster.

Dailey was injured in the September 2022 accident where the pumper truck that he was driving back from a call, rolled over the hill, ejecting him out of the vehicle. Dailey was pinned underneath the truck and had to be extricated with air bags, before being air lifted to a Columbus hospital.

Dailey was as some firefighters say “old school”. He was a fire instructor and Chief for many years, and impacted many lives.

Funeral arrangements are not known at this time. Middleport Fire Department asks that you keep Kevin’s family and friends in your thoughts and prayers.
