PA Firefighter Struck and Killed by Fire Apparatus

Yesterday at 12:01:24 PM CCF Administrator

We regret to pass on to you that a Firefighter from the Hilltop Volunteer Fire Company (McKean County, Keating Township, PA-south of the NY State line) was killed in the Line of Duty yesterday.  The volunteer Firefighter's death was the result of an accident involving a tanker truck at the Hilltop Volunteer Fire Company quarters. Initial reports are that the apparatus had returned to quarters from a detail and was backing in when the tragedy occurred. More specifics and details to follow.

Our condolences to all those affected.
Take Care. Be Careful. Pass It On.
