Regina Huffman


On Saturday, Oct. 28, 2023, firefighters responded to an ATV accident with two people seriously injured. Helicopters were summoned for transport. As the apparatus Firefighter Regina Huffman was riding in left the scene to go to the landing zone, it slipped off the roadway, went down an embankment, and struck a house. Firefighter Huffman and two other firefighters, one of which was her oldest son, were injured in the crash. All three were immediately rushed to the hospital where Firefighter Huffman died from her injuries a short time later. The two other firefighters had minor injuries and were released from the hospital.

Fatality status is provisional and may change as USFA contacts State Fire Marshals to verify fatality incident information.
