This afternoon, Kalamazoo Dispatch broadcast the last call for Comstock Fire Chief Ed Switalski, who was killed when hit by a car, while responding to a call on I-94. Hundreds of people were gathered for his service in Portage today when the Last Call was made.

Whenever an officer, or fireperson passes away, there's an emotional ceremony performed where dispatch makes one final call for them. These men and women put themselves in harm's way to help save lives every day, and it's always an emotional service.

Thank you for your service, Chief Switalski. Rest in Peace.
