  • Charlotte, NC LODD

    Charlotte, N.C.- It is with great regret and sadness that the Charlotte Fire Department announces the sudden death of a member of our own family. Just before 6:00 pm Friday, December 01, 2006 Charlotte FireFighter Kent Furman Long, 44 years old collapsed at Charlotte Fire Station # 23 while on duty. Fellow FireFighters began immediate resuscitation efforts along with a Medic crew that was on duty at the fire station. Brother Kent Long was quickly transported to Carolinas Medical Center where continued efforts to resuscitate him were unsuccessful. Our prayers, thoughts, and support go out to the Kent Long family at this very difficult time. The Charlotte Fire Dept family is grateful for the support that has already been extended to us as we deal with this tragic event. Visitation to be held Monday, Dec. 4, at Hickory Grove Baptist Church from 9:30-11am. Service to be held at 11:30am at Hickory Grove Baptist Church, 6050 Hickory Grove Rd, Charlotte, NC. Graveside to be held following service at Evergreen Cemetery, 4426 CENTRAL AVE, Charlotte, NC.
