Phil Emmett Memorial Page
On Saturday, January 24, 2015 the Casa Grande Fire Department lost one of its own members with the untimely death of Fire Captain Phil Emmett. He is survived by his wife Nora, sons Jackson and Carter, parents Don and Sherry and his sisters, Cindy and Dawn.
Emmett was hired by the Casa Grande Fire Department as an on-call firefighter in October 1999. He became a full-time firefighter on October 1, 2001 and was promoted to Engineer in 2007. On December 9, 2007 Phil was promoted to the rank of Captain. Captain Emmett was also a Hazardous Materials Technician. During his career, he was recognized by community organizations such as the VFW and the Moose Lodge for his service. He was awarded Firefighter of the Year in 2006 and EMT of the year in 2009 by the Department.
During this most difficult time, we appreciate everyone’s condolences, support and respect for Captain Emmett’s family, his Fire Department family and the community he proudly served.
A public memorial service will be held at 12:00 p.m. on Saturday, January 31 at First Assembly of God Church located at 501 E. Kortsen Road in Casa Grande. Due to limited parking, carpooling is strongly encouraged.
