William P. Porter II

William P. Porter II worked for the Sacramento Fire Dept. for ten years until his tragic death on May 9, 2012.  Bill was the engineer on Engine 6 C shift.  Bill was also on CATF7 and volunteered for the East Nicholas Fire Dept., For those of us who knew Bill we knew him to be one of the most upstanding, hardest working and dedicated individuals the world has ever known.  He loved his family, his job and the fire service.

To honor Bill we have created a “Bill Porter Memorial T shirt”.  A portion of the funds collected will go to the Widows and Orphans Fund to help families in the future with any unforeseen costs that they may incur.  The T-shirts are approved for on duty wear for the Sacramento Fire Dept. and we are in the process of getting other departments to approve the logo.  If you wish you can order an item with nothing on the back.

By buying a t-shirt you will help us remember one of the best examples of firefighter, father, husband and human some of us will ever meet.  View and buy the t-shirt and other articles of clothing here.
