    Default LODD Georgia?

    Found this while reading about damage to the Atlanta Motor Speedway on a racing site:

    In Rockdale County, authorities Thursday were trying to determine whether the death of a firefighter was weather-related. Deputy Chief of Training Mike Lee said the firefighter was killed while on duty but said authorities are trying to confirm details surrounding the death before releasing his name or more information

    From the Atlanta Constitution-Journal, 7-7-05

    From Chief Billy Goldfedder's "Secret List"

    Hey...
    We have been advised that Rockdale County (Georgia) Fire Apparatus Operator
    Thomas A. Hurlbert (54 years of age) of Engine Company 3 lost his life in the
    line of duty while operating his apparatus. The RCFD companies were heavily
    engaged in serious storm weather operations and responses due to Tropical Storm
    "Cindy" today, July 7, 2005.
    FAO Hurlbert was operating the rig when he collapsed behind the wheel...while
    the rig was moving. The company officer was able to safely stop the apparatus
    and no one was injured. On board firefighters had an AED and EMS equipment and
    worked to save FAO Hurlbert's life... but their efforts were not successful.
    As always, our deepest thoughts go out to the members of the RCFD and especially
    the family of FAO Thomas A. Hurlbert.
    Take Care-BE CAREFUL,
    BillyG
