The funeral of Garry Mallen, former captain of Portland Fire Brigade and the brigade's current 4th Lieutenant, will be held at 2pm tomorrow (Friday 9 February) at Portland Civic Hall, Bentinck St, Portland.
The service and guard of honour will be live streamed on CFA's YouTube channel from 2pm.
Garry was on scene responding to a shed fire on Tuesday 30 January, with members from CFA and FRV when he collapsed.
Despite the efforts of members and Ambulance Victoria responders at the scene, he was unable to be revived.
Garry has been a member of CFA for more than 30 years. Those who knew him and worked alongside him speak of his leadership, experience and most importantly his support and willingness to mentor others through their own leadership journey.
Our deepest sympathies are with Garry’s family, friends and colleagues at Portland Fire Brigade at this time.
