It is with great sadness that Charlotte Fire and Rescue notes the passing of our friend and fellow volunteer Kip Mesirow. A gifted craftsman, Kip showed his commitment to our community through his many years as a fire department volunteer. His warm nature and calm demeanor were a welcome addition in our station and on the fire ground. As a volunteer Kip regularly ran the pumps on the engines and was always ready to provide traffic control, often from the back of his pickup where he carried his own set of signs and traffic cones!
We remember with great fondness his presence in our station and sorely miss his ready smile and, of course, that spectacular moustache!
