Sgt William M. (Bill) Schelling suffered a heart attack while fighting a multiple alarm fire on Muhammad Ali Blvd.
Sgt. Schelling entered the Louisville Division of Fire in 1951. Bill was a veteran firefighter for 36 years. During his tenure, Bill evolved as an inspiration for countless numbers of firefighters. His love for the job and devotion to duty led directly to his laying down his life. It is this devotion that has captured the respect of so many. The experience passed on by Bill and his caring for rookies and veterans alike is the legacy left behind for remaining firefighters. Although sadly missed, Truck Co. 4 will always be blessed having had Sgt. William M. Schelling as a member.
