Deceased Wyoming firefighter named

Posted:
The Wyoming State Forestry Division employee that died in the line of duty on May 17 in Newcastle, Wyoming has been identified as Honor Conservation Crew Supervisor Ted Drake.

Drake was participating with other employees in the annual firefighter work capacity test (pack test) when he suffered a heart attack and attempts to revive him on scene were not successful.

Drake was 63 years old and had worked for the Wyoming State Forestry Division as a Crew Supervisor since June 2006.

"The Wyoming State Forestry Division is deeply saddened by this tragic event," Bill Crapser, Wyoming State Forester said. "Our hearts go out to his family, friends and co-workers. The support from the fire service in Wyoming and the wildland fire service nationally is greatly appreciated.”

A memorial service is scheduled Tuesday.
