• Fund to Benefit Family of Arcadia Firefighter


    LOS ANGELES (CNS) -A fund was established benefiting the family of Acadia firefighter and paramedic Mike Herdman who went missing in the Los Padres National Forest and was later found dead, the Fire Family Foundation announced recently.

    “Thank you for setting this up. I don’t know what Sienna and I would do without all the …support,” Herdman’s widow Bridget said, referring to her 6 1/2-year-old daughter.

    “We all love Mike’s big smile and his generous and adventurous spirit. He is loved and missed by us all.”

    Mike Mastro, chair of Fire Family Foundation, said the loss of this “dedicated young father and firefighter brings sadness and sorrow. To his wife and daughter we offer our sympathies and deepest gratitude for his commitment and dedication.”

    A fellow firefighter at the Arcadia Fire Department where Herdman had worked for nearly eight years described him as a “loved brother.”

    The foundation is a nonprofit organization assisting firefighters and fire victims.

    The 36-year-old Herdman went missing June 13 while on a hiking trip with a fellow firefighter. He was last seen chasing his dog Duke in the Sespe Wilderness.

    His partner made it back to the trailhead on June 15 and alerted authorities, who began a massive search to find him.

    His body was found Friday. His dog Duke was found alive before.

    Donations to the fund can be made online at www.FireFamilyFoundation.org by entering Herdman’s name or sending a check payable to the Fire Family Foundation, 815 Colorado Blvd., Los Angeles CA 90041, with a notion Herdman Tribute Foundation.
