Columbus, OH Firefighter/Paramedic LODD

From the Columbus Dispatch:

A 34-year veteran of the Columbus Division of Fire died Monday afternoon at the division’s training complex of an apparent heart attack.

John Moore, 56, played a key role in the growth of the division’s emergency-medical services since joining in 1975, Battalion Chief David Whiting said.

He was one of three paramedic instructors who worked at the complex on S. Parsons Avenue in 24-hour shifts, Whiting said.

Because they work around the clock, the instructors have a personal space while on duty that includes a bedroom, bathroom and living area.

A colleague who had seen Moore’s car parked on the lot but hadn’t seen him in a while went looking for him in that area. He found Moore dead about 4 p.m.
