It’s a reality every police officer knows exists, to die in the line of duty. We accept that risk, but still it’s a tragedy every time an officer loses his life. A year after two Wyandotte County Sheriff’s deputies were shot and killed in the line of duty, R-Mech was proud to be able to give back to our community of law enforcement by installing a full HVAC system for a charity event that raised $5,000 for those fallen KCK officers.
Fortunately, these situations don’t always end in tragedy. Such was the case for Officer Wagstaff, a member of the Independence police force who survived a shot to the head back in 2017. He isn’t just a brother in blue, Officer Wagstaff was one of 300 recruits trained by the founder and owner of R-Mech Heating, Cooling and Plumbing. Brad Chirnside is a former sergeant with Kansas City, MO Police Department who know wields a toolkit as leader of our HVAC company. We give much thanks to our supplier CFM and York for helping us take care of police families.
