It is with a heavy heart that I announce the sudden passing of Retired Deputy Chief Matt Lee. Matt had just retired as the Chief for Pre-Fire Engineering at the Office of the State Fire Marshal in late December, 2015, and was beginning an enjoyable retirement with his wife Melissa. Matt was rushed to Sutter Medical Center in Sacramento early Saturday morning in critical condition, and passed away late Monday night. Funeral arrangements are pending, and further information will be sent out as details are confirmed. We ask that you please keep Matt and his family in your prayers during this difficult time. Please feel free to forward this notification to other interested parties as you see fit.
