December 09, 2014, 08:16:32 PM CCF Administrator

FIREFIGHTER KILLED IN HORRIFIC RESPONDING CRASH - APPARATUS VS LOGGING TRUCK

We regret to pass on that a Firefighter from Savannah (Hardin County, Tennessee) was killed in the Line of Duty this morning while responding on a run. A truck driver was also killed. 4 year Veteran Firefighter Gus Losleben was airlifted to Memphis and later died. The head-on crash with the loaded log truck and a Hardin County Fire Department tanker happened around 1030 this morning as he was responding to a working dwelling fire.
 
Initial reports are that FF Losleben was headed west toward the two-story dwelling fire when the head-on with the eastbound log truck happened. The apparatus was "obliterated" as posted on our home page. Our condolences to all affected. More to follow.

Philadelphia FF LODD - Trapped In Basement

December 09, 2014, 12:13:43 PM CCF Administrator

FIRST WOMAN TO DIE IN THE LODD WITH THE PFD

We regret to pass on that a 36-year-old Firefighter was killed in the Line of Duty in Philly early this morning. She was one of several firefighters who responded and operated in the West Oak Lane home, which was around 0315 Hours. While operating, she became trapped inside the home's basement and was rescued by other firefighters a short time later.

She was treated by the members and transported to Albert Einstein Medical Center where she was pronounced dead around 0400 hours.

The 11-year fire department veteran is from Engine 64, which is stationed in the city's Lawncrest neighborhood. She was moved to that company three years ago. Her name is not yet released due to family notifications.

The last firefighter killed in the line of duty was Capt. Michael Goodwin, who died on April 6, 2013. Goodwin, a 29-year fire department veteran, was on the roof of a building near 4th and Fitzwater streets when it collapsed. He was pronounced dead at the scene of the Fabric Row blaze.

We'll have more later. Our condolences to all affected by this loss.

Take Care. Be Careful. Pass It On.
