Maryland Firefighter/EMT LODD: On-Duty Death 01.15.2014

Firefighter/EMT James “Doc” Delbert Brooks, 62, on January 7, 2014, was winterizing boats and a station at the Fort Washington Marina in preparation for record low temperatures forecasted for the following day. Firefighter Brooks began to experience difficulty breathing and called 911. Firefighters and paramedics arrived to find James Brooks in cardiac arrest and immediately began pre-hospital care. James Brooks was transported to a nearby medical facility and subsequently relocated to Medstar at Washington Hospital Center in "critical" condition where he succumbed to his injury on January 15th, 2014.
Our condolences to the Brooks Family & Friends, the Prince George’s Fire/EMS Department and to all affected by Firefighter/EMT James “Doc” Delbert Brooks’ passing.  
To date, 3 firefighter fatalities have been reported to USFA in 2014. Year-to-date monthly and annual USFA firefighter fatality reports are posted online at U.S. Fire Administration (USFA) Fatality Notices page.
