Deceased: April 25, 2005
April 25, 2005 Christopher Brian Hunton aka “Shrek” passed away after falling from a fire truck while responding to a structure fire. He was putting on his turnout gear without a seatbelt as they turned the corner, the door came open and he fell out.
After this tragic incident, the AFD created the “Team Brian” pledge. All members of our department have pledged an oath to ALWAYS wear our seatbelts – no exceptions. Please take this as a reminder to BUCKLE UP and stay safe!
