Line of Duty Death, Firefighter Marovich

Marovich, Thomas

Cause of Death: Fall

Age: 20

Firefighter Marovich incurred fatal injuries when falling while performing routine rappel proficiency skill training, at the Backbone Helibase in Willow Creek. He was working with the Chester Helitack Crew from the Lassen National Forest that had been assigned to the Backbone Fire in the Trinity Alps Wilderness. Firefighter Marovich was provided advance life support treatment immediately at the scene. The Base medical staff, the Humboldt County Coroner's Office, and the Humboldt County Sheriff's Office were involved in the response. The Forest Service has mobilized an accident investigation team and is working with the National Transportation Safety Board. Incident Location: Vicinity of Willow Creek (USNG: 10TDL4426)

This one is a lot closer to home. Firefighter Marovich was a fire explorer for a neighboring city.
