PA. FIRE POLICE OFFICER DIES IN THE LINE OF DUTY-Medical Emergency At Traffic Crash Scene

     

Saturday, February 23, 2013 We regret to pass on to you that a PA Fire Police Officer died in the Line of Duty yesterday. Fire Police Officer Claudia Sokol suffered a medical emergency while on traffic control duties at the scene of a motor vehicle accident in the Borough. Immediate medical attention was provided by members of Diligence FC, the Lansford FD as well as Lehighton ALS and Lansford BLS. She was transported to St. Luke's Miners Hospital in Coaldale and then flown to St. Luke's in Bethlehem.
She was with the Diligence Fire Company No. 1 (Summit Hill, Carbon County) and leaves behind her husband David and family. Additional details will be posted as they are available.
 
ABOUT FIRE POLICE: Fire Police are Volunteer Fire Company or Department members who receive sworn police powers, special training, and support firefighting efforts at moderate to major incidents. In addition to securing firefighting equipment, incident and fire scenes, and the station itself, Fire police perform traffic and crowd control. On occasion, Fire Police also assist regular police: they perform road closures, traffic control, crowd control at public events, missing persons searches, parade details, salvage, security, and other miscellaneous tasks as requested.
