USFA LODD: Oklahoma Fire Captain On-Duty Death Notification 05.24.2015

At 2230hrs on 05/23/2015, the Oklahoma, Claremore Fire Department was called to rescue about 10 people caught inside of several residential units due to rising flood waters. While assisting with the water rescue, Captain Jason Farley was swept into a flooded storm drain where he got trapped and drowned. Captain Farley’s body was recovered approximately two hours after the water rescue began. Another firefighter who was also swept into the storm drain suffered non-fatal injuries. All of the residents were rescued without injury.
Our condolences to the Farley Family & Friends, Claremore Fire Department, and to all affected by Fire Captain Jason Farly’s passing.
To date, 36 firefighter fatalities have been reported to USFA in 2015. Year-to-date monthly and annual USFA firefighter fatality reports are posted online at U.S. Fire Administration (USFA) Fatality Notices page.
