  • Arkansas Academy LODD?

    Yesterday on the news I heard about a recruit fatality at the Arkansas Fire Academy in Camdon after he had completed an evolution in the burn building, but did not see any news of it on this site.

    Does anyone have any information regarding this?
    Train to fight the fires you fight.

    We regret to advise you that a West Memphis (Arkansas) Firefighting recruit died during a training exercise today in Camden, Ark. David Eason, 38, suffered a heart attack during the exercise at the Arkansas Fire Academy just before 4 p.m. According to West Memphis Fire Department Battalion Chief Tim McNeely, Eason was doing an exercise designed to teach firefighters how to follow a hose out of a burning building if they get disoriented.
    He was in a darkened basement wearing his firefighting gear, but there was no actual smoke or fire involved.
    “He got quiet. They immediately turned the lights on. At that point, he had stopped breathing. They had a paramedic on scene, and he started working with them,” Chief McNeely said. Eason was flown to a nearby hospital, but pronounced dead less than an hour later. McNeely said Eason was in good shape and passed a physical to become a recruit. Eason leaves a wife and two young sons.
