WEST VIRGINIA EMT DIES IN THE LINE OF DUTY-INTERSTATE VEHICLE CRASH

The Secret List www.FireFighterCloseCalls.com

A West Virginia EMT died in the Line of Duty after a crash in Lewis County this morning. EMT Mark Anthony Kinder, a 26-year old of JanCare EMS, died after the ambulance he was riding in was involved in that crash on Interstate 79 south, near mile marker 97. A tractor trailer and the ambulance collided around 0500 but exactly how/why has not been released yet. The paramedic who was driving the ambulance was treated for injuries and released.  EMT Kinder was taken to Stonewall Jackson Memorial Hospital where he later died. There were no patients in the ambulance at the time of the accident. Our condolences to all affected. RIP.


BRYAN (OHIO) FIRE CAPTAIN UPDATE

As you know, last Friday, Captain Gary Merschdorf was on a scissor lift working on a bay door opener when the door unexpectedly began to open.  The door struck the lift knocking him to approximately 20 feet to the bay floor. He was conscious after the fall  and transported to the hospital in Bryan, then flown to UTMC in Toledo. Currently he is in ICU and sedated to assist in healing.  The doctors are hoping to began the process of removing the ventilator today as he is improving, but not out of the woods yet with a long recovery. We'll keep you updated.


A BELOVED CHIEF PASSES

We are deeply saddened by the passing of FDNY Battalion Chief "Captain" Jack Corcoran. "Capt Jack" as he was affectionately known-and enjoyed being called after his promotion to the rank of Battalion Chief, died from duty related cancer. He was the former Captain of Rescue Co. 4. Lieutenant of Ladder Co. 26 and a Firefighter at Ladder Co.19. Legendary, he was amongst the most highly respected firefighters/fire officers and we apologise for our delay in posting this. The funeral has already been held. RIP Cap.

Take Care-BE CAREFUL,

BillyG
