    PRESCOTT, AZ FIREFIGHTER TAKES HIS OWN LIFE

    Shared from :https://www.firefighterclosecalls.com/

    It’s with deep regret that we pass on this message from Chief Dennis Light of the Prescott (AZ) Fire Department.

    It is with a heavy heart and a great deal of emotion that we must share the tragic news concerning the loss of Firefighter/EMT Tye Seets. Tye seemingly suffered what appears to be a self-inflicted gunshot wound and was found by a family member earlier this morning, who is also a member of our department. Following initial life-saving measures undertaken by family members and arriving fire/EMS crews Tye was transported to Yavapai Regional Medical Center where he succumbed to his injuries. Tye leaves behind his wife Karissa, two young children, along with a very extended family here in the Prescott, AZ Quad-City area.

    Previous to his employment with the City of Prescott Tye served honorably with the United States Army.

    The Prescott Fire Department family would ask that you keep the Seets family and all our first responders in your thoughts and prayers during this very difficult and challenging time. At this time this is being managed as a Line of Duty Death with support from L-3066 of the IAFF/Professional Firefighters of AZ as well as department and city leadership.

    Information will be made available as plans become known relative to honoring our fallen. Our condolences to all those affected. Rest In Peace.
