No, I am not a water rescue technician, but I stayed in a Holiday Inn Express last night.

Here's the story on Worcester.
God bless those guys, they didn't need December to be any more difficult.“I am more than just a serious basketball fan. I am a life-long addict. I was addicted from birth, in fact, because I was born in Kentucky.”

Man, as if December wasn't already bad enough for them. RIP brother, hope the other firefighter isn't injured too badly. My prayers are once again with Worcester Fire Department and Mt. Vernon.

The Mt Vernon article link does not work and a google news search so far has come up with no mention of any Mt. Vernon FF death in the last 48 hours?. Seems odd that searching "Mt Vernon Fire Department" on google comes up with nothing about any LODD?
EDIT: Searching that website, turned up the only article on it i could find. It's odd that it's not mentioned on any other fire website that i can find.

I was working a burn day at the Fire Academy when the news of the LODD in Worester came over. I work with a lot of Worceter Jakes there at the Academy, and it took a few phone calls to make sure that all the instructors and support staff from Worcester who work at the Massachusetts Fire Academy were okay and accounted for.
It has been a tough day in Worcester, Mt. Vernnon and at Virginia Tech, where a police oficer was killed LODD....

As most have said what a sad day for the fire service. Keep our Worcester Fire Dept. Family in your thoughts during this unfortunate time.

My thoughts and prayers are with the family of FF Davies and of course the FD as well in this awful time with the Cold Storage Warehouse anniversary so close.
Also with the Mt. Vernon FF and the fallen police officer at Va. Tech.

My condolences to the family, friends, and Brothers and Sisters of those lost in Worcester and Mt. Vernon fire departments, and the Virginia Tech police officer, all killed in the line of duty.
Rest in Peace Brothers.
We will do our best to honor your memory by carrying on but never forgetting.Crazy, but that's how it goes
Millions of people living as foes
Maybe it's not too late
To learn how to love, and forget how to hate
