USFA LODD: Michigan Firefighter On-Duty Death Notification 07.29.2017

Firefighter Kevin Ramsey, 50, on July 29, 2017 died of an apparent heart attack shortly after returning to the firehouse from fighting a second commercial structure fire of the day. Firefighter Ramsey complained of nausea and chest pain to fellow firefighters, so they immediately began treatment and summoned advanced medical responders to the station. Firefighter Ramsey was taken to Detroit Receiving Hospital where, despite all efforts, he succumbed to his injury.

Our condolences to the Ramsey Family & Friends, Detroit Fire Department, and to all affected by Firefighter Kevin Ramsey's passing. 

To date, 58 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.
