The private vehicle that Assistant Chief Mitch Koski responded in was washed into the harbor by the flash flood waters and Assistant Chief Koski perished from drowning.

Our condolences to the Koski Family & Friends, Montreal Fire Department, and to all affected by Assistant Chief Mitch Koski’s passing.
