Late Arkansas firefighter honored 1 year later



The city of Sherwood held a ceremony at the Sherwood Central Fire Station to honor a city firefighter who was fatally shot one year ago.

The Arkansas Democrat-Gazette reports Ronald Jason Adams, a volunteer with the East Pulaski Volunteer Fire Department at the time, was shot and killed one year ago Sunday while responding to a medical call.

Sherwood Battalion Chief Jodie Hartman says a rescue vehicle now carries a memorial plate with his name displayed on its side. In 2014, Adams worked for months to help outfit that specific vehicle for the department. The honor was presented to the five-year veteran’s former fiancee, Lt. Jeannie DeMeyere, who also works at the fire department.

Adams’ mother Phylis Stroud says the honors will let her “son’s memory to live on forever.”
