Fire Department Paramedic LODD - Struck at Scene

January 06, 2015, 07:42:06 PM CCF Administrator

BEL AIR (MARYLAND) FIRE COMPANY: PARAMEDIC DIES IN THE LINE OF DUTY

We regret to pass on to you some tragic news from Maryland. At 1350hrs the Bel Air Volunteer Fire Company (Harford Co, MD) was alerted for a motor vehicle collision with injury on Patterson Mill Rd. It was reported that a vehicle had run off the roadway into an embankment and the injured subject was in a nearby residence. On the fire departments arrival it was determined that the best access to the patient was via four wheel drive assist due to the extreme weather and driveway conditions.

Bel Air Volunteer Fire Company Utility 373, a 2014 Chevrolet Silverado 3500HD equipped with a snow plow responded for the four wheel drive request. As the utility vehicle proceeded down the driveway it began to slide. At some point during the slide, a member of the Bel Air Volunteer Fire Company, a paramedic provider, was struck by the utility. He was treated at the scene and transported in grave condition to Upper Chesapeake Medical Center where he later succumbed to his injuries. Indications point to weather being a major factor in this incident. More to follow. Our condolences to all affected. Rest in Peace.

Take Care. Be Careful. Pass It On.

The leadership of Marylandís Kentland VFD, one of the busiest fire companies in the nation, says safety is an integral part of aggressive firefighting. Kentland, Prince Georgeís County Fire/EMS Department Chief Marc Bashoor and other fire service leaders are helping launch the National Fallen Firefighters Foundationís new campaign to further reduce the number of firefighters injured and killed in the line-of-duty. This effort was inspired by the work of those attending the Tampa 2 Life Safety Summit. You can read the Tampa 2 report here - http://everyonegoeshome.com/summit/tampa2_final.pdf
