Fire Chief Bowers Issues Statement Regarding Nicole Mittendorff

I, along with the men and women of the Fairfax County Fire and Rescue Department, am profoundly saddened to learn that the body found earlier today in the Shenandoah National Park is thought to be that of Firefighter-Paramedic Nicole Mittendorff. As we wait for further information, we continue to extend our thoughts and prayers to Nicole’s friends and family.
