My condolences to the Gafford family and the Birmingham Fire and Rescue Department of Alabama. Captain Billy Gafford, 56, a 23 year veteran of the Birmingham Fire and Rescue Department, died Wednesday April 25, 2007. Billy was performing an annual fitness training exercise at the University of Alabama-Birmingham when he suffered heart attack and collapsed. He was transported to University of Alabama-Birmingham Hospital where he died shortly after. I have created a permanent memorial for Billy on my website.

Stay Safe
