In memory of David E. Fannin, 1949-2024.

It is with great sadness that we have lost another friend and author.
He will be greatly missed.

David E. Fannin came from a family that epitomizes "service to others.” He was a volunteer firefighter for fifty years and his career path involved fire and safety in the industrial setting as well as with FEMA. Dave always had an interest in the history of firefighting and began research on his genealogy with the knowledge that his maternal great-grandfather had been a member of the Independent Fire Company No. 1 in Portsmouth, Ohio. During this time, his interest piqued further concerning the history of the early Portsmouth fire companies. He began documenting his work and decided to make his research available in History of the Early Portsmouth, Ohio, Fire Companies.

Firefighting has been in David Fannin's family for many generations and he felt it was time to compile all the information from previous small histories, newspaper accounts, council minutes, ledgers, and other books to provide a history of the fire companies in this historic town in Scioto County at the confluence of the Scioto and Ohio Rivers. Many years went into his preparation for this much-welcomed early history of fire fighting in Portsmouth, Ohio.
