The USFA has confirmed that his death will be considered as occurring on duty because it happened within 24 hours of his previous shift.

"He loved the fire department and loved his family. The loss is strongly felt here and we're going to miss him," Assistant Chief Jeffrey McCrobie told the news station.

Davis is survived by his wife and their three children.
