RICHMOND (AP) — Richmond firefighters are selling blue light bulbs to raise money for the family of Cold Spring-Richmond police officer Tom Decker who was killed on duty in November.

The bulbs cost $5 each, of which $4 will go to memorial funds for Tom Decker.

Richmond firefighter Skip Halvorson says it’s important to show community support after such a tragic incident. He hopes people will turn on the blue lights at night to build a sense of community.

Halvorson got the idea from the Douglas County sheriff’s department, which raised almost $900 for Decker’s family.

Decker was fatally shot behind a downtown bar as he and a partner were checking on a man who was reported to be suicidal. Decker had two sons and two daughters.
