It is with deep regret that we advise you that Lt. Vincent Cruz of the Guam (U.S. Territory) FD has died in the Line of Duty yesterday. Initial reports are that Lt Cruz refused to stop working while feeling ill, then died while on duty. At the time of his death, his title was Firefighter II Vince Cruz but has been posthumously promoted to Fire Lieutenant. Acting Governor Ray Tenorio declared the state of mourning in the GFD today, which will last until the funeral of Lt. Cruz. Lt. Cruz was on duty and was instrumental in responding to the high number of emergency calls the fire department had to respond to last night.
Our sincere condolences.
NOTE: For Those Who May Not Be Familiar: Guam is an organized, unincorporated territory of the United States located in the western Pacific Ocean. It is one of five U.S. territories with an established civilian government. Guam is the largest and southernmost of the Mariana Islands.
