    Unhappy Off-duty Firefighter Death

    This Past Weekend One Of Our Firefighters Was In An Accident When He Fell Out Of A Pick-up Truck And Struck His Head On The Asphalt.

    On Saturday, June 23rd, Engineer Frankie Garcia, 33, Suffered Major Head Trauma And Was Flown To University Medical Center In Tucson, Az. Eng. Garcia Suffered A Basal Skull Fracture And Suffered 3 Bleeds In His Brain. There Were Also 3 Clots In His Brain. After Many Hours Of Surgery Eng. Garcia Made It Out Of Surgery And Had Beat The 50/50 Odds Of Coming Out Of Surgery Alive. The Next Morning Eng. Garcia Suffered A Major Cva Leaving Him Brain Dead.

    Frankie Was An 11 Year Veteran Of The Douglas Fire Department In Douglas, Az. He Leaves Behind A Wife And 3 Young Children. Frankie Was Taken Off Of Life Support On Monday, June 25, 2007. He Died Shortly There After.

    Godspeed Frankie....you Will Be Missed!
