Jared Calvin Lloyd


On March 23, 2021, Firefighter Lloyd, the members of his fire department, and numerous other fire departments responded to a fire in a multi-story assisted living facility. Firefighter Lloyd rushed into the burning building to save residents, but the fire’s intensity grew, and he also became trapped. He sent out a Mayday call and fellow firefighters tried to pull him out, but heavy flames and smoke prevented them from reaching him. For hours after the fire was under control, firefighters scoured the rubble for Firefighter Lloyd. His body was found nearly 24 hours after he became trapped.
