Former Camden City Deputy Chief, Current AVFD Fire Dept Safety Officer Dies LODD From Medical Emergency After A Fire Call.
We regret to pass on to you that Safety Officer Paul Price Sr, 63, of the Audubon NJ FD has died LODD after suffering a medical emergency.
On Thursday, the Audubon Fire Department was dispatched to a motor vehicle accident with a utility pole and wires down. Safety Officer Price was one of the personnel who answered the alarm by responding to the firehouse. One apparatus responded prior to Price arriving at the station. The responding apparatus and personnel mitigated the incident. Safety Officer Price remained at the fire station while the call was ongoing. Upon the return of the apparatus to the fire station, Price assisted the personnel with placing the apparatus back into service. He then left the station and later that evening attended a town Emergency Management meeting. Safety Officer Price returned home later that night and was discovered the following morning by a family member already deceased due to a likely cardiac event. EMS responded for the pronouncement, as no life-saving measures were warranted. Safety Officer Price was a former Assistant Fire Chief with Audubon Fire Department and a retired Deputy Fire Chief with the Camden City Fire Department.
Our condolences to all those affected. RIP.
