Massachusetts Firefighter On-Duty Death Notification 11.13.2019


In the early morning hours of Wednesday, November 13, 2019, Lieutenant Jason Menard, 39, and his crew responded to a multi-residential structure fire, with heavy smoke coming from the building. The fire grew to four alarms and, at one point, firefighters issued a mayday call from the third floor.  Lieutenant Menard and other firefighters became trapped by heavy fire conditions.  He helped two firefighters escape the blaze, but the fire quickly worsened and Lieutenant Menard was unable to flee and succumbed to his injuries. Three other firefighters were taken to the hospital.  Two of the firefighters have been released and the third is in serious condition.
  


Our condolences to the Menard Family & Worcester Fire Department, and to all affected by Fire Lieutenant Jason Menard‘s passing.
