RIP Scotty

OSWEGO, NY – The Oswego City Fire Department is mourning the loss of one of its own today.

The department sadly reports the sudden passing of Firefighter Scott Davis, according to Assistant Chief Jeff McCrobie.

Davis, 46, died unexpectedly over the weekend downstate.

Firefighter Davis was a 14-year, well-respected member of the Oswego Fire Department, McCrobie said.

“It was a complete shock to all of us,” McCrobie said. “We were notified by some family members.”

 Firefighter Scott Davis’ turnout gear is mounted on the front of Engine 1812 at the east side fire station as a memorial to the fallen Oswego firefighter.

Calling hours will be Wednesday afternoon at Nelson Funeral Home, the assistant chief said.

(His obituary is here.)

“We are planning a memorial service at the funeral home for 6 p.m.,” he added. “We are anticipating a large contingent of professional firefighters will turn out for the service.”

Davis was a veteran firefighter – critical care technician.

He had just come off duty and was visiting family, according to John Geraci, president of the local firefighters’ union.

Since Davis died within 24 hours of coming off his shift, under the Hometown Heroes Law of 2003, the death is considered “in the line of duty,” he pointed out.
