Honoring & Remembering Maryland Fallen Heroes

Cobb Island Volunteer Fire & EMS ~ Charles County ~ Maryland
August 6, 2011

Firefighter Christopher A. Staley was attempting to rescue a friend who was drowning in the Wicomico River near the Wicomico Shores pier. Firefighter Staley swam out and was able to reach his friend, but the rough water and strong currents of the Wicomico River kept pulling both men under. Tragically, both Firefighter Staley and his friend drown.
As a result of his heroic act, Firefighter Staley was posthumously awarded the Cobb Island Volunteer Fire Department's highest honor, The Gold Medal of Valor.
Firefighter Christopher Allen Staley was 22 years old and had served 6 years.
