Santa Barbara City Fire Department crews lined the Highway 101 overpasses Friday afternoon to salute Daniel Corrigan, a firefighter who died Wednesday from an unknown medical emergency.

A motorcade procession, with family members and Corrigan’s engine company, took Corrigan’s body from Santa Barbara to Ventura, according to the department.

City Fire crews from several stations turned out to salute Corrigan as the procession went south, and the California Highway Patrol helped escort the procession. 

Corrigan, 35, joined the Santa Barbara City Fire Department in April 2013.

Services are pending, and the department asks that any messages of condolence to the family be sent through the Santa Barbara City Fire Department at 925 Chapala St., Santa Barbara, CA 93101. 

Donations can be made to the Daniel Corrigan Memorial Fund through the local branch of the International Association of Fire Fighters

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
