It's expected to be one heck of a goodbye for a young volunteer firefighter who lost her life Christmas morning, heading to a fire call.

Funeral services for Natalie Dempsey, 21, of the Mizpah Vounteer Fire Company will be held Sunday at 1pm at Absegami High School in Galloway.

As of 10am Saturday, more that 50 different fire companies have responded and indicated that they will be attending the services, many company with trucks and apparatus. They will be coming from not only South Jersey, but several surrounding states.

Dempsey was not only a firefighter, but she was the vice-president of the fire company.

In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to:
Mizpah Fire Company, 6478 Dehirsch Avenue, Mizpah, NJ 08342

or

The Atlantic County Humane Society, 1401 Absecon Blvd., Atlantic City, NJ08401.
