Members of Platoon 2 from his company, Engine 3, along with Firefighter Donna Tideback of Engine 18, presented Smothers with a quilt containing a complete patch collection from all DC fire units and organizations. This priceless piece of pride was hand sewed by Firefighter Tideback.
Firefighter Smothers has been in an in-patient rehabilitation center since September 8th, following his treatment at the Medstar Washington Hospital Center.
The Smothers family thanks everyone for their continued prayers and support, and ask that all continue with their prayers as he continues to heal.
The family also thanks the staff at Medstar Washington Hospital Center, who saved Dane's life, as well as DC Firefighters Local 36 and the DC Firefighters Burn Foundation Family Service Team. who provided constant support during the period Smothers was hospitalized at Medstar.
