    Unhappy Bill Poley, New Madrid LODD

    It is with deep regret that we advise you of the Line of Duty Death of New Madrid (MO) Volunteer Firefighter Bill Poley. FF Poley was tragically killed when a fireworks mortar struck him as he was assisting with loading the mortars at the community fireworks show on July 4th. Local EMS and fellow New Madrid FF's/First Responders were on standby at the scene, but were unable revive him. The incident is under investigation at this time by state and local officials. FF Poley was 40 years old and leaves behind his wife of three weeks, Joyce Poley, his mother, two brothers and two sisters. FF Poley served the New Madrid Fire Department for three years as a firefighter/first responder and was also served in the same capacities for the Marston, MO., Fire Department. Funeral details are incomplete at this time, but will be posted as soon as possible. This information provided by the NMFD and more details will follow.
    As always, our sincere condolences.
    Take Care-BE CAREFUL.

    My deepest condolences to the New Madrid and Marston Fire Departments and the Poley family.

    Sleep in the arms of the angels, Bill.

    Not to take away from the loss felt by the family and friends of FF Poley, but this has since been reported as a non-LODD. A tragic loss, anyway.
