The Mission

The Garrett W. Loomis Foundation is committed to enhancing fire safety education regionally, providing opportunities for individuals or organizations driven to positively impact our local communities and honoring Garrett's legacy in perpetuity.

The Reason

On April 11, 2010, the Sackets Harbor community lost a great friend, son, brother and hero, Garrett Loomis. Garrett, a professional firefighter at Fort Drum and a Sackets Harbor Volunteer Firefighter, was tragically killed while fighting a silo fire at North Harbor Dairy.
