USFA LODD: New Jersey Firefighter On-Duty Death Notification 11.06.2016

Firefighter Alfred A. Stewart, 79, on November 6, 2016 reported to the fire station for a company drill. He remained alone at the station to perform maintenance duties while other company members attended the drill. At some point, Firefighter Stewart ascended a ladder inside the station for these maintenance duties. When fire department personnel returned from the drill, they found Firefighter Stewart entangled in the fallen ladder.

It is unknown whether Firefighter Stewart suffered a medical emergency while atop the ladder and then fell, or if the ladder had fallen while he was on it, causing his trauma. An autopsy is pending to determine the official cause of Firefighter Alfread A. Stewart's death
Our condolences to the Stewart Family & Friends, the West Milford Volunteer Fire Company #6, and to all affected by Firefighter Alfread A. Stewart's passing.
