We regret to pass on that yesterday at 1236 hours, the Argyle (South of Rapid City, near the Black Hills) Volunteer Fire Department was called to a working wildland fire endangering structures, 9 miles south of Jewel Cave. While responding, AVFD Firefighter Dwain Hudson experienced a medical emergency. Other AVFD Firefighters and EMS members immediately rendered emergency medical aid until Custer Ambulance Service arrived on scene. Firefighter Hudson was transported to Custer Regional Hospital where resuscitation efforts continued. Efforts to save Dwain were not successful and he died in the Line of Duty.
Our condolences to all those affected. Rest In Peace.
Take Care. Be Careful. Pass It On.
