USFA LODD: New Jersey Firefighter On-Duty Death Notification 08.10.2016

On August 10, 2016 the Audubon Fire Department was dispatched to a motor vehicle accident with a utility pole and wires down.  Safety Officer Paul Price, Sr., 63,  was one of the personnel who answered the alarm by responding to the fire station.  One apparatus responded prior to Price arriving at the station.  The responding apparatus and personnel mitigated the incident. Safety Officer Price remained at the fire station while the call was ongoing.  Upon the return of the apparatus to the fire station, Price assisted the personnel with placing the apparatus back into service.  He then left the station and later that evening attended a town Emergency Management meeting.  Safety Officer Price returned home later that night and was discovered the following morning by a family member already deceased due to a likely cardiac event.  EMS responded for the pronouncement, as no life-saving measures were warranted. Safety Officer Price was a former Assistant Fire Chief with Audubon Fire Department and a retired Deputy Fire Chief with the Camden City Fire Department.
Our condolences to the Price Family & Friends, Audubon Fire Department, and to all affected by Safety Officer Paul Price, Sr’s passing.     
To date, 51 firefighter fatalities have been reported to USFA in 2016. Year-to-date monthly and annual USFA firefighter fatality reports are posted online at U.S. Fire Administration (USFA) Fatality Notices page.
