 KETTERING — The Kettering firefighter who was injured near his Springboro home after a tree limb fell on him during the Sept. 14 windstorm is expected to be released from Miami Valley Hospital soon, according to the International Association of Firefighters, Local 2150.

Moore, 25, had been at his best friend's house in Springboro helping remove a fallen branch that had struck the house's window when the accident occurred, according to a press release sent out by the Kettering firefighters' union and the Kettering Fire Department on Sept. 17, 2008.
The union and the fire department were recalling what John's wife Meredyth Moore had told them about the incident. John Moore tried to outrun the falling limb but it caught him hitting him in the head, injuring his spine.
He underwent surgery and started rehabilitation while in the hospital.
The firefighters' union has been blogging on their web site about Moore's progress and their latest blog, written by member Ethan Klussman and dated Sept. 29, says: "The Dr told John today that as long as there are no set-backs that sometime Wed. he will be released/discharged."
The firefighters' union has also set up an information phone line for those wanting to get information about Moore's recovery or how to donate to the John and Meredyth Moore fund that has been set up through National City Bank. The phone number is (937) 296-2406.
