We regret to pass on that Fire Recruit Andrew Vaughn, 36, passed away after suffering a medical emergency during Greensboro (NC) FD’s pre-employment physical assessment.
The physical assessment included a mile and a half run, sit-ups, push-ups, and pull-ups. The first assessment was the mile and half run to see what the candidates needed to work on.
Andrew was finishing his last lap when he collapsed. He said his legs were cramping and he couldn’t stand up. Vaughn was slated to join the GFD recruit class beginning Sept. 1. Our condolences to all those affected. Rest In Peace.
