USFA LODD: California Firefighter On-Duty Death Notification 05.25.2017

Inmate Firefighter Matthew Beck, 26, was leading a crew clearing brush to contain a fire when a 120-foot tree uprooted and fell on him. Firefighter Beck suffered major head, neck, and back injuries. The remote location of the incident posed challenges for medical responders and before life-flight crews could get to him, Firefighter Beck passed away.

Our condolences to the Beck Family & Friends, CAL FIRE, and to all affected by Firefighter Matthew Beck’s passing.  
To date, 43 firefighter fatalities have been reported to USFA in 2017. Year-to-date monthly and annual USFA firefighter fatality reports are posted online at U.S. Fire Administration (USFA) Fatality Notices page.
