Firefighter Struck LODD - South Carolina

February 16, 2015, 11:40:02 AM CCF Administrator

We regret to pass on to you that a Kenneth Stanton, a Firefighter in Sandy Springs (Anderson County) was struck and killed in the Line of Duty this evening, Sunday.

Initial reports are that the crash, on US-17, occurred at around 2100 hours. Stanton, 52, was operating at the scene of a previous crash when he struck by a vehicle. The former Marine and now volunteer Firefighter was immediately treated and transported but succumbed to his injuries. This incident may also be a hit and run-that's not yet been confirmed.

We will have much more-also please follow www.SConFIRE.com for additional details.

Our condolences to all those affected.

Fire Officer LODD, FF'S Burned - House Fire/Collapse

February 12, 2015, 10:07:23 AM CCF Administrator

It's with deep regret that we pass on that one of the Firefighters at that Georgia dwelling fire has died in the Line of Duty, and others have suffered injuries including severe burns.

20-year Macon-Bibb Fire Department veteran Lt Randy Parked was killed when he and others fell through a floor into the basement at a house fire this evening.

Lt. Parker, 46, died at a local hospital. Firefighter Steven Stafford, 59, was flown to the Augusta Burn Center where he is listed in critical condition. Two other firefighters, Fareell Cromer, 46, and Adam Mitchie, 34, were also transferred to Augusta. FIrefighters Matt Couey, 27, and Ben Bollinger, 28, were in stable condition at Medical Center-Navicent Health.

STATEMENT FROM THE MBCFD: "Tonight, please keep the family and friends of our firefighters in your thoughts and prayers. We have three going to the Augusta Burn Unit and two that remain at Navicent Health, Medical Center," ..... "Sadly, we lost a 20+ year veteran of our force and ask you keep his family and friends in your prayers."

Much more to follow. Our condolences to all affected. RIP.
Take Care. Be Careful. Pass It On.

Fire Chief Seriously Hurt In Fire Apparatus Explosion

February 11, 2015, 04:37:57 PM CCF Administrator

The Bristow (Oklahoma, SW of Tulsa) Fire Chief is recovering in the hospital after a fire department tanker he was working on exploded yesterday in quarters.

Around 1400 hours, Fire Chief David McSpadden thought he smelled battery acid leaking from beneath the passenger seat of the newly renovated tanker truck-and after Chief McSpadden lifted the seat to investigate the smell, the truck exploded. Chief McSpadden suffered a broken neck, jaw, damage to his eye sockets and several burns and was taken to St. John Medical Center in Tulsa and underwent surgery.

The Chief was in stable condition as of last night. The truck had not been used since it was donated by another government agency a few years ago. The Oklahoma State FM is investigating but as of now, they are unsure of what caused the explosion.
Take Care. Be Careful. Pass It On.
