The family of Lorain Firefighter John Volak has asked that the website that was set up to keep friends and well wishers updated on Volak’s condition be shut down.

The family issued the following statement to TMCNEWS.NET:

“Because of all the news surrounding the accident; newspaper articles misquoting from the web site, John’s picture being used in a newscast about a Police officer getting a DUI, and insensitive people making uninformed remarks about the accident, the family asked that the web site be shut down.

The family has been overwhelmed with all the publicity that ordinarily would not have continued if John were not a firefighter. The family will continue to keep his brother and sister firefighters updated in a more controlled manner out of the public eye.”

Friends and anyone interested in helping the family are encouraged to stop by the Lorain Fire Department’s Central Station at 1350 Broadway Ave and contribute to a fund that is assisting the family. The money collected will help the family pay for expenses such as parking at the hospital. If you cannot make it to the fire station but would still like to help you can call and speak to a Lorain Firefighter at 440-201-2219.
