Something is killing our firefighters
Many are dying suddenly of heart attacks or unknown causes
We’ve heard a lot over the last two years about athletes, entertainers, journalists and other known people dying suddenly and unexpectedly of “natural causes,” or “unknown causes” even though most of them were thought to be completely healthy up until the moment they collapsed.
But what about the unknowns? The ones that don’t make the news? The nurses, firefighters, policemen and teachers who go to work each day in relative anonymity?
The elephant in the room that the corporate mainstream media does not want you to even consider is the toxic Covid jabs that started being mandated among health and safety professionals in early 2021.
In my research I’ve discovered a treasure trove of data on one of the most anonymous professions of all, that of firefighters. They don’t have a national union or spokesman so when they die it rarely makes it beyond the local newspaper, and if they didn’t die in the line of duty their death is unlikely to make front page news even in the local media.
But they are dying in unprecedented numbers.
The U.S. Fire Administration keeps track of firefighter deaths, but only those that occur while on duty or soon after responding to a call.
In 2021, when the Covid vax was first rolled out, there were 141 firefighter deaths recorded by USFA – that was up 38.2 percent from 102 deaths in 2020 (when Covid was supposedly raging throughout the United States) and up 120 percent from the pre-Covid year of 2019 when only 64 firefighters died.
Still curious, I checked the five-year, pre-Covid average for firefighter deaths and that number was 86. An average of 86 firefighters per year died between 2015 and 2019. So why did 141 die in 2021, when they were all getting jabbed?
In 2022, the USFA recorded 96 firefighter deaths and there’s already been 27 through April of 2023. Of the 27 deaths logged so far in 2023, 17 of them involved cardiac arrest or some other “undetermined” cause of death. I have not yet gone through all of the 2022 and 2021 deaths to find out how many involved cardiac incidents.
Since firefighters are among the most vaxxed Americans (almost all departments mandated the shots), it would be fortuitous to look at the number of cardiac incidents that resulted in not just death but also serious injury. So far no one has done that.
All of the below incidents come from the U.S. Fire Administration website and include links to the original post. I only included the cases that were attributed to fatal heart attacks or appeared to be cardiac in nature, not any of those attributed to traumatic injury, suicide, etc.
· On April 24, 2023, Capt. Roy Sewell, age 27, was responding to an EMS call at the North Tazewell, Tennessee, Volunteer Fire Department. While en route, the apparatus he was driving left the roadway and rolled down a steep embankment. Captain Sewell was fatally injured and was declared deceased at the scene. It’s not known what made him suddenly drive off the road. It could have been human error, or it could have been a heart attack. There’s no mention of an autopsy being conducted.

Harris drove his privately owned vehicle to Station 2 to retrieve Engine 4. While there, he was met by a fellow firefighter. Both donned their gear when the other firefighter noticed Harris was experiencing shortness of breath. Both left the station in Engine 4, with Assistant Chief Harris as the passenger, enroute to the structure fire.

Something is killing our firefighters. These are just the cases so far that I could find in 2023. I will be further crunching numbers and relaying more information from these databases as time allows.
Thank you for fighting for the truth Leo it's a shame what our country has become no outrage whatsoever from the sleeping masses
You would think with all the Brilliant Doctors and Scientist we supposedly have, none of them can figure out what is causing all these Deaths. So they call it SAD...The only thing that is sad is the blindness of so many Doctor's, or perhaps they just like the sound and site of money pouring into their hospitals, their practices, along with Big Pharma reaping in the dough! It's obvious without Big Pharma advertising on / for the Main Stream Media, where would they get the funding to make their payrolls.
I am sicken and sadden that so many people continue to be and are clueless to What The Hell is being played on US(A). This is truly a Spiritual Battle and we have heard this before ( at least some of us) however, it isn't being said, let alone heard to the people from our Pastors( very few), Government, or from all the ones that should! Thank You Leo, Brannon Howse, and many other few, that keeps the Truth coming for us to be informed!! and GOD HELP US(A)!!!
